STAHRS Traveling Lessons Program (TLP)

The traveling lessons program will teach Racquetball skills to youth as well as the STAHRS Core Values in the Denver metro area and front range of Colorado using playing professionals and other instructors. The Treveling Lessons Program will teach the STAHRS Core Values and anti-bullying materials in addition to skills training related to their sport of interest. The TLP can be incorporated with youth sport camps and development programs. Professional athletes will provide lessons to participants.

At present, the first implementation of the Traveling Lessons Program will follow the Pro stops of the International Racquetball Tour and the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour. We have 8 playing professionals and the Executive Director who will provide instruction and materials about basic human psychology and interpersonal relationships with a focus on the negative effects of violence.

Participants will receive FREE lessons with T-shirt, hat, water bottle, and cooling towel plus STAHRS workbook.

The lessons program will be expanded to other sports as playing professionals from other sports join. The shortened traveling lessons curriculum can be applied to youth sports camps for all sports, including tennis, golf, soccer, basketball, baseball, football, etc.

Estimated costs of the TLP participants is $35/ child for handbook, t-shirt, hat, water bottle, and sports towel. A group of 25 participants equates to $875. Additional costs will be associated with promotional materials and shipping costs. Lessons will be offered free of charge at men's and women's pro-stops, therefore multiple locations may used for the lessons on the same weekends, as well as Denver & Front Range locations.

The In-Schools Program is the main crux and initial intended method to reach the student athletes and to reach our mission and goals. The ISP will use the Relationships 101 workshop curriculum designed and based on my 30 years experience in mental health, domestic violence, and private counseling. Relationships 101 is the culmination of everything that I have taught my clients and everything that they have taught me about their lives. The workshop provides easy to digest information and tools to assess the quality of relationship dynamics, to build healthy communication and conflict resolution skills, and to understand the basics of human interactions and interpersonal relationships. Using anecdotal information, I can illustrate how humans internalize social learning and role modeling, how cognitive schema and beliefs are formed, and describe the parameters and influences of human reactions and behaviors, including the use of violence.

The In-Schools Program will place emphasis on describing and reducing intimate partner abuse in an effort to reduce teen dating violence, sexual assaults, and bullying. Connections between mental health, substance abuse, and antisocial behaviors, such as bullying, vandalism / criminal behaviors, and substance abuse will be illustrated with anecdotal information to demonstrate the widespread commonality of the issues and experiences. Compassion and empathy will be promoted by developing understanding of victims' experiences and the diversity of effects and responses that define the parameters of human behaviors. Relationships 101 can explain the extremes of behaviors in real life events witnessed daily by explaining the effects of traumatic patterns and abuses.

Student athlete participants and coaches will receive a Relationships 101 workshop handbook and t-shirt, hat, water bottle, and sports towel. Schools will receive DVD recording of their schools' presentation and written materials for future use. Ideally, STAHRS will present to interested schools every two years, hopefully catching students twice prior to graduation.

Participants will become ambassadors to promoting positive peer cultures of acceptance and inclusion as part of the anti-bullying campaign. Promoting inclusion, compassion, understanding can positively influence interaction with new students, foreign students, and "different" kids can potentially reduce the depression, anxiety, and negative self-esteem frequently associated with the socially awkward and withdrawn.

Estimated costs per student athlete is $50/ participant. The cost for 100 students is $5000. The In-Schools Program will target rural school districts to address gaps in in rural mental health services and will seek grant funding to primarily fund the ISP. Speaker costs are estimated at $1500 per full day. The Relationships 101 workshop can cover 8-16 hours of time depending on depth of materials covered through small group break out sessions and other guest presentations.

Our Anti-bullying and Relationships 101 curricula have been copyright protected. The Antibullying curriculum is a 4-hour program which has been presented to 150 high school students to date. Relationships 101 is up to 16 hours of information and materials. We expect to get back into the classroom in Fall 2021.

We were able to present our Antibullying materials to 150 high school students in the spring of 2019.
The Covid crisis has prevented teachers from expanding on their curricula this year and guest speakers have been discouraged.

Duane Barone, the founder and executive director, co-authored a children's' books, The Big Fire, which addresses acceptance and inclusion for bullying prevention. It was released in June 2020 as book 3 in the new series, Bruno's Amazing Adventures. The series is created and published by the FreeBird Foundation of Evergreen, Colorado.
