VHSL, InsideOut announce Phase 2 Initiative

VHSLThe Virginia High School League announced this week the continuation of the InsideOut Initiative program, empowered by the NFL Foundation and the Washington Football Team.

The InSideOut Initiative is a national movement that empowers and equips school communities to implement purpose-based athletics by connecting student-athletes to transformational coaches in a culture of belonging for their social-emotional and character development.

InSideOut is a 4-Phase Initiative that provides a proven pathway for developing a transformational culture. The Four-Phases include; Consensus Building, Professional Learning Communities, Student Curriculum, and Sustaining Culture.

Virginia participated in Phase 1 of the ISOI during the 2019 – 2020 school year. Phase 2 was postponed last year due to COVID but will renew the training during the 2021 – 2022 school year.

ADs who engage in the AD – Professional Learning Community will participate in six – 2-hour training sessions throughout Phase 2. The PLC will work collaboratively to implement the 5-Step Pathway and train coaches.
