Welcome to the CGB Coach Development Program! Here at CGB, we are decided to #changingthegame of baseball to create an inclusive space for girls to play the game. We promote learning resiliency through teaching girls how to play, how to win, and how to lose. Our goal is to empower and inspire girls to lead, learn, and play.
SEE IT TO BE IT
We're on a mission:
Building a movement and making space for girls in sports
But we can't do it alone. The ability to create a positive learning environment for girls in sport starts with the coaches. With that in mind CGB has created the “See It to Be It” Coach Development Program to give Coaches the tools to be effective leaders in their sport. While CGB was born from a baseball background, the “See It to Be It” program focuses on our philosophies for girl-specific coaching and can be applied to any sport. We believe that ALL girls who want to play a sport should be able to. We know that girls face enough barriers to joining sports and we work hard every day to break down as many barriers to participation as possible. Our approach to coaching focuses on making sport more accessible and engaging for girls.
The “See It to Be It” Coach Development Program is comprised as a series of workshops to give coaches tools and resources to be better equipped at coaching girls in sport.
