Athletic coaches and educators are in a special position to support healthy behavior and prevent youth substance use. They have a special relationship with athletes and students and their influence should not be underestimated.
Coaches and educators are often role models in the eyes of youth, so when they talk to players and students about the dangers of alcohol and drugs, the message is more effective.
Casco Bay CAN provides coaches and teachers with the resources and training to help you recognize the signs of youth substance use, guidelines about how to address the problem, and tips to support healthy behavior.
