SHIFT SPORT CULTURE
YOUNG ATHLETES NEED GOOD MENTORS
Today’s young people are statistically more anxious, depressed, and lonely than ever before. Coaches are positioned to help, but they lack the appropriate professional development, resources, and support to develop young athletes who thrive on and off the field.
“One study found that an average high school student today likely deals with as much anxiety as did a psychiatric patient in the 1950s”
–KATE FAGAN, NY TIMES BEST SELLER, FORMER ESPN JOURNALIST, COACH FORUM 2019 SPEAKER
Research shows that one meaningful adult relationship has the power to change the trajectory of a young person’s life.
EQUIP COACHES TO BE THE ONE
Can you imagine if every athlete had a mentor investing in them whole-heartedly? A coach who cared deeply about their character, their confidence, and their future? Can you envision a world where every young person had a coach equipped to engage their hurts, their hopes, and their vulnerable identity formation?
We can. And we are seeing the impact as coaches transform lives.

INVESTING IN FUTURE
Our supporters have chosen to invest their valuable resources in our mission. They believe in NCC, the power coaches have to affect young lives, and young people’s need for a well-placed mentor to guide them. Here are some of their stories.
“I believe that NCC’s work is one of the most strategic ways we can positively affect the lives of kids in our city today and for their future. Even the best-intentioned coaches, if not trained well, will fall short of the important impact they can have in the lives of our kids. The better equipped the coaches are to help kids on a heart level, the better off the kids are and the better off our future as a city is.”
“Reflecting on my personal experiences as an athlete, a coach and the father of athletes, I, like countless others, most vividly recall the tough times. NCC’s mission is to build a community of coaches committed to being the essential positive influences our youth need. With every coach impacting ~75 young lives in a year’s time, can you imagine the possibilities for the lives of our children and our communities?”
“NCC is an unbelievable organization that truly is impacting Nashville and beyond by reaching into coaches’ hearts. It’s through this heart work that coaches’ lives are changing for good and that in turn is having a life changing impact on countless students in their care.”
