Calling All Coaches: Join Former Seahawks QB Jon Kitna And CBS Sportscaster James Brown To Devise Game Plan To Better Mentor Young Athletes

SEATTLE, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Coaches from Seattle-area middle and high schools, colleges and universities, and community leagues are invited to attend a free training session on May 7 to learn how to develop, mentor and lead young men and help build their character.

The Verizon Foundation and A CALL TO MEN – a leading national violence prevention organization – will bring the final installment of their national training series, entitled A Call To Coaches: Your Voice Counts, to CenturyLink Field in Seattle from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on May 7.  Coaches as well as community leaders who work with youths can register for the session by emailing danielle@acalltomen.org.  Attendees will be capped at 300.

This half-day, interactive seminar is designed to equip coaches and community leaders with resources to prevent abusive behaviors by promoting respect, non-violence and healthy relationships. More than 700 coaches and community leaders at previous sessions in Charlotte, N.C., and Baltimore have pledged to use their power of authority and leadership to encourage boys and young men to have a healthy and respectful manhood.

The Seattle session will bring together several members of the NFL community and domestic violence prevention advocates, including Jon Kitna, former Seahawks quarterback; CBS Sportscaster James Brown; and Tony Porter and Ted Bunch, co-founders of A CALL TO MEN.

"Healthy relationships begin with respect," said Bunch.  "Breaking down traditional stereotypes about manhood is essential, and that begins in the locker room.  Coaches need to take the lead and set the right examples and call players out when they are in the wrong."
