Programs for Athletes

Choose Respect Montgomery helps athletic teams facilitate two nationally recognized programs for athletes to learn about leadership, respect and conflict resolution.

Coaching Boys Into Men 

  • Athletic coaches play an extremely influential and unique role in the lives of young men. Because of these relationships, coaches are poised to positively influence how young men think and behave, both on and off the field. Coaching Boys Into Men (CBIM) is the only evidence-based prevention program that trains and motivates high school coaches to teach their young male athletes healthy relationship skills and that violence never equals strength.
  • This program is being facilitated by coaches at eight schools—Springbrook High School, Richard Montgomery High School, Montgomery Blair High School, Northwest High School, Colonel Zadok Magruder High School, Parkland Magnet Middle School for Aerospace Technology, Rockville High School and the Charles E Smith Jewish Day School

Athletes as Leaders

  • Athletes As Leaders is a program for high school athletes on girls’ sports teams.  The program aims to empower student athletes to take an active role in promoting healthy relationships and ending sexual violence. Athletes are encouraged to be leaders in changing social norms at school (and beyond) to a culture of safety and respect.
  • This program will be piloted at the Charles E Smith Jewish Day School during the 2019-2020 school year.
