The RedZone training was developed solely with the purpose of providing practical skills for
coaches to use in high emotional conflicts with parents, athletes, or administration. These skills include diffusing confrontations, mediating parent-coach meetings and conflicts, as well as building a culture around predicting and preventing conflict. RRG uses online courses as a way to get everyone speaking the same language surrounding conflict, and the in-person training as a way to incorporate interactive real-life scenarios for the coaches to implement the skills they learned online under the supervision of conflict resolution professionals.
