The Yellow Card Challenge™ is calling for you to step up as leaders in the work against dating abuse. Don’t accept the use of violence in relationships or the need to control. We will work our engaging program around your schedule and provide your team with this important message without disrupting your normal activities.Physical violence, emotional control and sexual pressure are forms of abuse that no one should have to face. You strive for excellence on the field and we urge you to do the same off of it. The program is designed to focus on your players’ roles as leaders in their school community and to help them become a positive force against dating violence.The One Love My Plan App is an anonymous, free app to help you to determine if a relationship is unsafe and creates an action plan for those in dangerous situations.Romantic relationships play a huge part in our physical, social and emotional well-being.Having a good and successful relationship can promote better health (Cohen, Frank, Doyle, Skoner, Rabin, & Gwaltney, 1998), and even aid in faster recovery from illnesses (Kiecolt-Glaser, Loving, Stowell, Malarkey, Lemeshow, Dickinson, & Glaser, 2005).
