Education & Events

Gold Crown Foundation continues to educate beyond sports through our Health Huddle activities as we help parents, coaches and patrons tackle the “whole child,” in mind, body and health. Through our new Health Huddle Speaker Series and Health Huddle Videos found here, we will address youth mental health, nutrition, sleep, technology, sports performance and more as it pertains to today’s youth. We're so excited to have many Health Huddle expert partners who provide mental health, healthy habits and sports performance content for these channels.

The end of the school year is often full of stress and this year packs even more of a punch with the ambiguities and transitions our kids are facing. This talk will highlight the signals and signs of stress with youth and leave you with practical, hands-on strategies for keeping stress on the bench. Whether the stress is from finals, transitions to summer, or just growing up, this talk will cover strategies for managing life’s difficult plays.
