ABOUT THE FOUNDATIONS
SG United Foundation (“Strong Girls United”) empowers girls and women through sports, mentorship, and mental health programming. To date, programming has centered around K-8th graders, alongside college female athletes who serve as mentors and coaches.
We are listening to you. High school athletes, coaches, and athletic directors. You told us you want and need more mental health skill building within sport. But often you don’t have the time or staff to create and truly embed this training into your programs. This is where we come in.
INTRODUCING . . . THE FOUNDATIONS.
A 10-module curriculum for athletes, teams, coaches, and schools to integrate important lessons from female athletes for female athletes. Lessons that will span far beyond the courts or fields and support your athletes in building skills for life.
This program will help high school athletes and teams lay the foundation for a healthy sports career. The Foundations features female athlete mentors from the college and professional circuit, and additional resources related to sports nutrition, mental health, college recruiting, coping with injuries, building team culture, and more.
WHAT'S SPECIAL ABOUT THE FOUNDATIONS?
Each module is designed as an approximate 30 minute lesson, including a short educational video, an individual reflection/activity page and a team activity and/or discussion guide. Each module also includes videos from collegiate, professional and elite female athletes who share their experiences and examples of these skills in practice.
ADDITIONAL RESOURCES & MATERIALS
The Foundations Locker Room is a library of 1 – 3 minute videos featuring female athletes from different sports, schools, times in their lives and careers, all with so much wisdom to share. Check out the Locker Room for a new voice on your favorite Foundation!
Additional one-pagers can be downloaded, handed out to athletes, or posted in the locker room related to mental health support, team culture, bullying, playing sports in college, recruiting, managing your period, transitioning out of sport after your career, and more!
This collection of resources will continually grow and change.
HOW IT WORKS
The Foundations is available for annual subscriptions beginning in 2024 at the individual, team, and school/club level. Once subscribed, you will have access to the 10-module curriculum, as well as all of our additional resources for the year. With team access, we recommend that coaches carve out 30 minutes of time to deliver each module, and perform the paired activities as a group. Each athlete will also receive individual access as part of the team package.
We recommend schools seek funding through local grants or their SEL/mental health, and/or athletic budgets. There is an opportunity on the form below to express interest in participating if we are able to secure funding to make it free as well.
