Developing and Maintaining Healthy Relationships

I had the amazing opportunity to return for a second year in a row and present to the coaches and athletes of Colorado high schools on Developing and Maintaining Healthy Relationships in the Spotlight.

I had a full classroom. All chairs were taken up and many teens piled in on the floor. We had a wonderful conversation about relationships, both healthy and unhealthy. We also talked in depth about teen dating abuse.

Thank you to the wonderful organizers of the Coaches and Leadership Conference. 

Colorado Spirit Coaches Association's mission is to support the needs of Colorado coaches in cheer, pom, dance, all-star, and drill teams by uniting, educating, networking, and recognizing the achievements of the athletes and coaches of our Rocky Mountain State.

The Leadership conference educates spirit leaders in developing and maintaining respect between teams in the spirit industry, promotes advocating for the sport, educates how to be an ambassador for the team, school, and entire spirit industry, provides formal training with skills and personal behavior/attitude, and increases development in professionalism within the sport.

I had a wonderful group of teens. So many amazing ideas, thoughts, and stories were shared. I look forward to coming back again next year!

At the end of the hour, I had the teens write what love means to them on their hands and arms. Here are some pictures!!!

Love is....


What is love to you?

Best to all,
