In the 17th Century, John Donne wrote, "No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main," No man - or boy- is completely independent. We are all connected. We all rely on and support each other. We are all a part of numerous communities. We are family members, employees and employers, volunteers, and participants in all sorts of groups. However, to do so effectively requires many diverse skills. The boys we raise are also parts of various communities and "teams." For our boys to be their best, we need to teach them explicitly how to be engaged, respectful, empathetic, and strong team and community members. This begins by helping them recognize what it means to be a part of a team. That is what Young Tritons is all about - using movement to teach the skills needed for our boys to grow up into the men we ALL need them to be.
All of our curriculums follow a six-week pattern that develops inner and outer strength. From learning basic running drills to creating and implementing a community service project, boys learn the value of taking care of themselves so they are able to take care of others.
