Coaching Boys Into Men

This evidence-based prevention program trains and motivates coaches to teach their young male athletes healthy relationship skills and that violence never equals strength.

Who this program is for

Coaches for boys’ sports teams of any kind


This two-hour clinic with a qualified and certified advocate gives coaches the tools and resources to impart knowledge to young athletes over the next 12 weeks through a brief 15-minute discussion each practice. The Coaches Kit guides coaches through each training session to address respect, integrity, and non-violence with athletes.


2 Hours



Course Description

Because athletic coaches often are strong role models in the lives of young men, they are uniquely positioned to positively influence how boys think and behave, both on and off the field. The Coaching Boys Into Men curriculum, which can be easily integrated into regular coaching strategy and sessions, focuses on these guiding principles: 

  • The power of sports: the principles of teamwork and fair play make sports an ideal platform to teach healthy relationship skills.

  • Coach as a leader: as influencers and role models, coaches are uniquely poised to teach and model healthy behavior.

  • Building leadership, transforming norms: athletes are given the tools and vocabulary they need to stand up for respect and influence their culture.


CBIM has been proven to positively affect male athletes’ bystander behaviors and reduce abuse perpetration. You can change the culture of a team, a neighborhood, a school, or an entire community!

Coaching Boys Into Men was created by Futures Without Violence, which develops innovative ways to end violence against women, children, and families.

What participants are saying about Coaching Boys Into Men

Now if a boy says something demeaning to a girl, people will walk up to you and say, ‘Boys to men.’ It really influenced a lot.
