Find a time during the season to have a conversation about the issues of masculinity and/or femininity with your athletes. The following video links provide great teachings on the real issues that young boys and girls are dealing with as they navigate the path to healthy adulthood.
After you play the video(s), process the content of the videos with your athletes. Once the issues have been raised and discussed, have your eyes open for teachable moments throughout the remainder of the season to expose the lies of masculinity/femininity or correct behaviors that find their motive in false definitions of manhood/womanhood.
