Designed to assist coaches, trainers, youth workers and others looking to use sport as a vehicle to help 13 to 18 year olds cope with challenges in everyday life, the Trainer Manual has been designed for use in low resource settings across the globe. It specifically draws on sport as a positive influence for youth to develop their personal and social skills and aims to increase knowledge about the risks associated with crime, violence and drug use.
