Why do I need Lead ‘Em Up?
We believe leadership is a skill and like all skills, they need to be developed. Lead ‘Em Up gives you the tools to develop the skills of leadership & communication, both essential components to your team’s success, in a fun and engaging way with your players.
How many lessons are included in each volume?
We provide you 12-weekly sessions in each volume
What is a “Volume”?
A volume is a 12-week leadership curriculum that you have access to for a year after purchase date.
How long is each weekly session?
Each session is designed to be 30-minutes. We encourage the coach to allow for some flexibility in case the session opens up some healthy & engaging discussion among the team.
What are the topics?
What is the difference between the $329 team cost and $799 program cost?
The $329 program is for one individual team. For $799 we allow multiple users to access the account so the entire athletic program at the school (boys, girls, JV, Varsity, fall, winter & spring sports) can access the program.
What happens if we purchase as a team and then decide to later rollout to the entire school?
At that point, email [email protected] and we’ll coordinate so you’ll only need to pay the remaining difference.
What age group is Lead ‘Em Up designed for?
Lead ‘Em Up is applicable for all levels but currently it’s only available for High School’s to purchase. We have recently rolled out a pilot program with a youth club league and hope to have Lead ‘Em Up available for the youth space in the near future.
What are the available forms of payment?
We accept credit card or check. You can sign-up here.
How long does the purchase last for?
When you purchase a volume, you will have access to the online curriculum for 1-year from the date of purchase.
When should I start the program with my team?
This will vary from program to program. We’ve seen Lead ‘Em Up be successful in various formats: utilizing it solely in-season (12-weeks in a row) or splitting it up and doing a few of the sessions during the offseason and then finishing the remainder in-season.
Who should I have take my team through the program each week?
This will vary from program to program. It’s ultimately up to you, we just encourage you to find the coach on staff (or bring in someone to work with your team) that has the biggest heart for your players leadership and character development.
Where should I do each session with my team at?
Location is key. You ultimately can do them almost anywhere; gym, basketball court, classroom or locker room but to maximize the impact try to find a quiet, distraction-free, intimate space ideally. If you’re forced to host the sessions on a field, try and move the group to a corner away from distractions and have the players look in the opposite direction of the distractions so they can focus on the speaker and activities.
Can I see a preview of the program?
Yes! Here is a glimpse into what one of the weekly sessions look like: http://leademup.com/pregame-preview/
What does the curriculum look like?
The curriculum consists of a weekly icebreaker, illustrative stories, engaging team talk discussion topics, week-long reinforcement exercises and a dynamic game “activator” from game on Nation
What do the games from game on look like?
game on’s cutting-edge, interactive exercises, fueled by the science of Game Dynamics, have been tried and tested with some of the most influential sport teams and organizations in the world. Each 12-15 minute exercise utilizes elements of role-play and improvisation to set up and reinforce the theme for each session. The result is an engaging, hands-on learning experience for your student-athletes with tangible outcomes to advance your team’s communication, teamwork, trust, and leadership goals.
What happens after our year purchase?
We hope at that point your team has grown through the first year of the program and you’re excited to continue on. The following year you’ll just purchase the next volume which will have an all new set of lessons, games, etc.
