WE ARE FOCUSED ON THE WHOLE CHILD
Since 1986, Gold Crown Foundation has put the needs of youth in our community first. We are proud to expand our reach beyond the playing field as we help parents, coaches and patrons tackle the “whole child” in mind, body and health. Join us as we address youth mental health, nutrition, sleep, technology, sports performance and more as it pertains to today’s youth.
IT'S FUN TO BE HEALTHY!
COMMUNICATION IS KEY
As we address these health topics, we encourage you to talk to your players. Talk to your coaches. Talk to your children. Talk to your friends. Always keep the conversation and communication going as we work together for the best interest of our children. Normalizing conversation around tough topics can only open doors and reduce the negatives stigmas that surround these issues.
WHY HEALTH HUDDLE?
We feel strongly that the overall health of our children needs to be addressed. We want the Health Huddle to be a resource that you rely on and an additional avenue where you can count on Gold Crown Foundation. When you “Huddle Up” you come together as a team. But this also should be taken off the court as you “Huddle Up” at the dinner table or during carpools – it can be addressed across all aspects of life. Gold Crown Foundation is proud to “prepare kids for the game of life,” and is consistently working to give them the tools to succeed now and in the future.
Whether you're an Athlete, Coach, Parent, Partner or Supporter, we want you to
Together we will create positive change in mental and physical wellness for all.
Want to support the Health Huddle?
With your help we can spread the #PledgeToHuddle movement and continue to educate our community on the physical, emotional and mental health of our youth.
