Husky Strength

Husky Strength (formerly titled Boys’ Leadership Program) engages young men in middle school grades in Sport-Based Youth Development (SBYD) learning and practices so to empower development of life skills and leadership traits that can be transferred into classroom, home, and community life. Engagement centers around physical activity in a team setting with Husky Sport coaches, with intentional and consistent fostering of a supportive and challenging culture. Student participants regularly complete journal writing and reflection that underlines the importance of self awareness and personal growth. Partnership with classroom teachers, school leaders, and families supports the transfer of learning and skills beyond the Husky Strength program.
