Sport & Trauma

For more than 5 years, Up2Us Sports and Edgework Consulting have been working together to leverage the power of sports to help kids heal.  Through coach training and program design we're using sports to create safe spaces for kids affected by trauma.  Our aim is to create a sports environment that can encourage kids to be physically active, become more comfortable in their bodies, develop competence, and make meaningful connections with caring adults and supportive teammates.
