Meditation Station

Mindfulness involves paying attention to the present moment without judgment. Our goal is to reduce stress, increase awareness, and promote relaxation. You’ll want to find a quiet space where you can sit comfortably. You can expect periods of silence and guidance on breathing during the session.

Coaches Care Initiative

The Coaches Care Initiative refers to efforts by sports coaches or teams to promote mental health awareness and support among athletes. These initiatives recognize that athletes, like anyone else, can experience mental health challenges and stress related to performance, injuries, and other pressures.

Key aspects of the Coaches Care initiative include:

  1. Mental Health Education: Providing information and resources to athletes, coaches, and staff about mental health issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, and how to recognize signs in oneself and others.

  2. Support Systems: Establishing support systems within teams or organizations, such as access to mental health professionals, counselors, or peer support groups, to help athletes cope with challenges.

  3. Stigma Reduction: Working to reduce stigma surrounding mental health in sports environments, encouraging open conversations and seeking help when needed.

  4. Skill Development: Teaching athletes and coaches mindfulness techniques, stress management strategies, and other mental skills to enhance resilience and performance.

  5. Creating a Positive Environment: Fostering a supportive and inclusive team culture where mental health is prioritized alongside physical health and performance.

  6. Awareness Campaigns: Organizing events, workshops, or campaigns to raise awareness about mental health and promote healthy habits among athletes and the broader community.
