Megan Bartlett

Founder, The Center for Healing and Justice through Sport

National Advisory Board

Megan wants every coach and youth development practitioner (fine, every human) to learn about the brain so that they understand the unique ability that sport has to help kids heal, grow and thrive. Happiest when she’s in a room full of coaches, Megan designs and delivers training experiences, creates toolkits and resources, and provides support to organizations committed to ensuring that all sports experiences are healing experiences. She is part of the faculty for NM Sport, speaks regularly on the power of sport for good, and is the author of two books: “A Kids Book About Trauma” and “Redesigning Youth Sports- Change the Game.”

Megan has spent most of her career working in, designing, and advocating for programs that use sports to promote youth development and positively impact communities. She speaks regularly on the power of sport to create social change and is the co-author of the book, 'Re-Designing Youth Sport: Change the Game'. Megan previously served as the Chief Program Officer at Up2Us Sports where she created their innovative, nationally recognized trauma-informed coach training program. Megan serves on Nike’s Global Training Advisory Group and is partnering with the Child Trauma Academy to develop the Neurosequential Model in Sport- a fully trauma-informed sport intervention model.
