How Bullying In Our Schools And On Our Teams is Impacting Today’s Youth by Lynn Kachmarik

Research reveals that children fifteen years ago were more likely to stand up to a bully than students today.

Many students from middle school through high school identify student-athletes as some of the biggest bullies. This workshop discusses research on bullies and how coaches/teachers/classrooms and teams can help to change this culture and positively impact the entire school community.

As a result of attending this workshop the participants will be able to:

  • Better understanding of biggest forms of bullying today and how to engage our students/student-athletes in proactive conversations.
  • How to have that conversation with your students/teams about “why being cool” is not the direction to go?
