Implementation

The InSideOut Initiative  is a four-phase implementation process designed to reclaim the educational purpose of athletics in the school communities. The InSideOut Initiative is uniquely innovative because it is the first systems-level intervention to prioritize the social-emotional and character development of student-athletes in high school athletics.
