We are not holding in-person trainings this season. We hope to resume face-to-face trainings next spring. While we love seeing all of you in person, the safety and well-being of our trainers and team members nationwide remain our top priority.
VIRTUAL CAPTAINS' MEETINGS
Although we are not currently delivering in-person training, we remain deeply committed to setting you up for a successful season. In that spirit, we are now offering virtual meetings with captains/advisers. As always, the meetings will take approximately one hour and are offered cost-free to all teams. Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your meeting.
Prior to the meeting, your team captains will fill out a brief survey, so our trainers will have a snapshot of your current needs, concerns, and operating structure. The survey poses broad questions as well as questions about the particular policies/structures in place at your school this fall to address social distancing issues.
All captains who participate in a meeting will receive a copy of our Captain’s Manual. In addition to our traditional content, the meeting will include a discussion about:
the extracurricular landscape for your particular school
what your team can do lift and enhance school spirit, even if there are no sporting events/assemblies
Generation Spirit's mission concerning inclusivity and school spirit
the importance of empowering captains to create an overall school environment where every student feels included and celebrated
what captains can do to effectively lead their teams during this challenging time
We will also email our updated Team Playbooks to captains and advisers after the virtual meeting to disseminate to team members.
VIRTUAL TRAINING CURRICULUM
We are also creating a series of 10-15 minute videos that cover different components of our training curriculum. We will send the training webinars to captains/advisers after the captain’s meeting.
We are still offering apparel grants to teams who qualify. If you are interested in applying for an apparel grant from Varsity Spirit, please contact us at email@example.com
