Hat-Trick Initiative

Our award-winning ‘Hat-Trick Initiative’ is a three-year partnership with an implementing community partner, and consists of comprehensive, year-round organizational development and sport for social impact education that focuses on local issues such as: female empowerment, including gender equity; conflict prevention, including social inclusion; health and wellness, including HIV/AIDS behavior change; child rights; vital life skills; and fun.

Our key to success is a unique Self-Directed Learning model that is based on our 'Chance to Choice' and ‘ASK for Choice’ curricula that educate people to identify, address, and solve problems specific to their communities. When applying for a partnership, communities choose either our Chance to Choice or ASK for Choice pathway.

Chance to Choice

Coaches Across Continents uses a unique Self-Directed Learning model that educates people to identify, address, and solve problems specific to their communities. We believe that young people throughout the world go through similar stages of development. ‘Chance to Choice’ focuses upon the principles of moving from the chance and conformity of an unquestioned lifestyle through deepening insight to the recognition of potential choices. Personal life skills are required to make and act upon these choices. Coaches Across Continents works to give youth the life skills they need to move beyond “Chance” and reach “Choice.”

Over the course of the three-year partnership, we use annual benchmarks to monitor progress. In the first year, we Educate on how to best use sport for social impact. In the second year, communities Adapt our curriculum to best suit their local needs. And in the third year, they Create a sport for social impact curriculum specific to their own community.

ASK for Choice

Through ASK for Choice, Coaches Across Continents will: create an environment for the progression of Attitudes towards education and gender roles; the development of Skills for female leadership and problem solving; and an increase in Knowledge of gender policies. This will lead to educational, employment, entrepreneurial, financial, girls’ and women’s rights, and health Choices. ASK for Choice will enhance personal and community responsibility and produce locally owned and relevant gender equity initiatives.

Coaches Across Continents’ strategic mentorship on curriculum and policy development will bring gender policies to life throughout communities by generating pathways to advance women’s and girls' participation, leadership, and rights in and through sport.
