Prevention Strategies Collaborating with InSideOut Initiative
Drs. David Wyrick and Muhsin Michael Orsini, with Prevention Strategies and the Institute to Promote Athlete Health & Wellness, are collaborating with Joe Ehrmann and Jody Redman to conduct a collaborative evaluation of the InSideOut initiative. Funded by the NFL Foundation, the InSideOut Initiative seeks to transform the current “win-at-all-costs” sports culture, where value is often defined by the scoreboard, into one that promotes education-based athletics that values sports as a human growth experience.
During one-day forums sponsored by the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium and the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium, school teams comprised of coaches, athletic, and educational administrators, were trained to create school-specific implementation action plans to help reclaim sports as an educational experience. More than 130 coaches and administrators representing 40 different high schools in Ohio attended the training in Cleveland, while another 115 coaches and administrators representing 35 different high schools in the state and a few in Indiana and Kentucky participated in the Cincinnati training.
