Curriculum 1 in a series of 3 helps boys learn the meaning of a team, how they matter to it and how the team can matter to them.


"We are a TEAM" - In the 17th Century John Donne wrote, “No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.” No person or child is completely independent. We are all connected. We all rely on and support each other. We are all a part of numerous communities. We are family members, employees and employers, volunteers, and participants in all sorts of groups. But to do so effectively requires many diverse skills. The children we raise are also parts of various communities and “teams.” For Young Tritons to be their best we need to teach them explicitly how to be an effective part of a team as well as community members. This begins by helping them recognize what it means to be a part of a team. 


With this curriculum, your team will work towards running a 5k, whether that's a race in your community or one you make yourself at the culmination of your club - this program will give you all you need to help everyone find their own happy pace and discover this finish line is just the beginning of what's possible in life.


The coaching handbook includes weekly/daily overviews, activities with objectives, workouts to train for a 5k, lessons and tools to teach social-emotion intelligence.
