The winning nomination was “Strengthen Learning Programs through Online Assessments and Predictive Learning.”  The nomination was for The National Catholic Educational Association’s Information for Growth program.

More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Live Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others. More than 230 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

“The National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) offers tools to assess the effectiveness of religious education programs over time. Partnering with the Catholic Faith Technologies platform, they now offer their nationwide assessment program online,” explains Jay Breeden, President of Catholic Faith Technology. “This award-winning solution saves time and money, while reporting allows for data-driven decisions and predictive learning opportunities. We appreciate the judges’ feedback, such as - I really like this focus with Religion on the backburner of people's lives these days. And the restriction of in-person education and worship. I think the website is very high end and helpful.  Congratulations to all the worthy winners of the 2020 Stevie Awards, it is humbling to be the company of such innovative organizations.”

 

“Despite the toughest business conditions in memory, American organizations continue to demonstrate their commitment to innovation, creativity, and bottom-line results,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher.  “This year’s Stevie-winning nominations are full of inspiring stories of persistence, ingenuity, resourcefulness, and compassion.”

Stay Proactive on Your Coaches' Certifications - Go Online and Keep Your Coaches Safe!




No sports on TV…no national tournaments, no local teams practicing or playing…and the Olympics are postponed!  

Certainly, public health is the most critical issue at hand, but it’s important to remember that these conditions are temporary. Sports will once again play a beneficial role in our lives in terms of fitness, stress relief, building teamwork, boosting self esteem and more.  

Catholic Faith Technologies, in cooperation with our partner, Coaching Coaches, LLC wants you to know that all of you are in our prayers as we battle this unwanted crisis. There are ways to prepare for your upcoming seasons even when teams and coaches can’t gather.

Coaching Coaches provides online courses through the CFT platform. These online programs provide a way for coaches to meet their coaching requirements and certifications while staying safe at home. These courses have been viewed by more than 60,000 coaches representing several different dioceses with extraordinarily positive evaluations.  

By utilizing these online programs, your CYO program can stay current with its coaches' requirements, avoid multiple coaching meetings, and prevent the gathering of people when we start to get back to some normalcy.

We frequently hear “we aren’t sure who will be coaching this fall,” but experience shows that over fifty percent of coaches are planning on coaching in the fall. New coaches may have been waiting for this opportunity for years.

These three courses can be a positive step forward in an uncertain time:

Coaching to Make a Positive Difference:    This online program is the foundation for all the programs.  New diocese price is $20 versus $29 through June 30th, 2020.  

 

Looking in the Mirror:  this online program is designed for more experienced volunteer coaches (greater than 3 years), high school coaches and can be used as a re-certification course.  New diocese price is $20 versus $29 through June 30th, 2020.  

 

Positive Parent Participation:  this online PARENT program is a real eye-opener for PARENTS.  It is a short online program which delivers a very strong message to parents as to their role in youth sports.  This online program completes the Coaching Coaches' Triangle:  Child, Coach and Parent!  The cost will be $15 until July 31, 2020
