Project SCORE (Sport COnnect and REspect)
Score- Uniting Life and Sport
Project SCORE (Sport COnnect and REspect) was developed in October 2010. The 4 C’s framework (confidence, connection, competence, and character) is used as a platform to teach positive development through sport. Project SCORE has developed into a key resource for coaches, athletes, and parents. The goal is to support the growth of youth through sport and life through deliberate delivery in sport programs and helping parents support these lessons outside of sport. On this site, you will find a ‘Coaches Locker Room’ with information and activities for coaches related to the growth of the 4 C’s. There are also very easy ‘SCORE Plays’ that coaches can use and integrate into practices. The site also features a ‘Parent Lounge’. This lounge provides parents with ideas of how to support the development of the 4 C’s and reinforce lessons learned in sport.
