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 Health Huddle Speaker Series is a chance for you to hear from local experts on a variety of topics. They are currently being held virtually and are always available to view on your own time. To view the latest talks, scroll to the video library below or visit our YouTube Channel.
