An online-initiated, real-life activated program dedicated to inspiring Happy AND Successful lives. We accomplish this by providing a basic understanding of our 7 Core Values (online – one at a time) followed by a physical experience based in the nature of each Core Value – as part of the Certification to be a Coach you will act in both roles for these experiences. After completing this process for each Value, a patch is awarded, plus a Citizen Athlete t-shirt for completion of the 7th Value – one of the cool bonuses of the Coach’s Certification.
Step 1: the Citizen Coach learns about a Core Value online and completes that Core Value’s quiz.
Step 2: the Citizen Coach then experiences each value as a Prospect and as a Sponsor (not simultaneously in the same value), providing the unique experience base that only a Certified Citizen Coach can have.
Step 3: repeat Steps 1 & 2 until all 7 Core Values have been experienced as both a Citizen Athlete Prospect and a Citizen Athlete Sponsor… creating a Certified Citizen Coach!
Citizen Athlete is a program built on the idea that real change only happens when something is challenging. That attributes, capacities and values are grown (not learned) from experiences – especially experiences shared with others… that Discovery Journey programs inspire real change, inspire personal Evolution.
Citizen Coach is a certification program built on the idea that experiencing all aspects of a system creates quality resourcing. That connecting people and creating community requires understanding how to cultivate potential – supporting people… that Happy & Successful lives can BE inspired and experienced.
Our program requires two kinds of participants, a Prospect and a Sponsor. We resist terms like student and teacher or mentor because we believe that great life-forming experiences come from an environment of sharing, rather than from a hierarchical teacher / student relationship.
noun | ‘präˌspekt’ | def > 2. a Person regarded as likely to succeed.

We are dedicated to the development of Happy AND Successful lives.
Our program is inspired by nearly 30 years of working with great people from all walks of life – great athletes, incredible citizens, passionate coaches and dedicated educators. Coach Rhino has observed that these folks are no different than anyone else with one exception; they live by, and for, a set of values and standards that gives their lives direction and purpose.
Without direction and purpose we don’t know where we are going or why we are doing whatever it is we do. The Citizen Athlete Program provides the fundamental tools necessary to build a Great Life – the Citizen Athlete Program will give you the tools you need to find your direction and purpose.
We believe to create positive life-forming opportunities, we need to remove all sense of stress and work, so our program is designed to be enjoyable and adventurous (and a little challenging).
