The "Super Bowl" SFW Format is a directed study of discipleship intended for mature teams who have been together for a long time.
The "starting team" should be no more than 6-8 members.
Appoint two team members to be the "Coach" and the "Assistant Coach" to lead the team. Others can be a backup but it is a good idea to start with at least two leaders.
The "Super Bowl" SFW has a unique feature in that it uses a CTG "Playbook for Disciples" to help guide the team through the workout.
The "Super Bowl" Workout has a video component for viewing as part of the Playbook which can be viewed streaming from the website for free.
A hard copy of the Playbook for Disciples can be purchased through the website, but it can also be downloaded from the website for free.
Create a "safe environment." Everything said in the "huddle" stays in the "huddle" and is held in STRICT CONFIDENCE.
Start and stop on time. This respects others time and it is attractive to men to stay on schedule (one less reason to quit).
Commit to follow the "Super Bowl" meeting format faithfully, even when there is resistance (men don't want to sing, pray out loud, share each week, etc.).
All team members must make a concerted effort to create a personal action item at each workout and work to accomplish their personal action item before the next workout.
Provide a brief time at the beginning of the workout for team members to share about their progress. You can lead by sharing your own progress.
Encourage every team member to bring their Bible to all workouts (Make sure you bring yours).
Encourage every team member to prepare for the next workout by reading the selected section of the Playbook and reflecting on the associated Scripture passages and questions.
If you do not have time to complete all the questions, we suggest that you continue the discussion at the next workout, but make sure to always complete the personal action item and closing prayer steps at the end of the "Super Bowl" meeting format.
Begin and end each meeting with prayer. Beginning the prayer time with a worship song which is easy for men to sing is highly recommended but optional. You may have to insist on singing; most men are hesitant at first but are glad when they participate. "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord."
Optional prayer and song sheets pertaining to the "Super Bowl" meeting format can be found on the website.
Keep a copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church available during workouts.
Encourage all team members to focus on their spiritual training between workouts (including yourself).
Make sure the room is properly set up.
Double-check all of the equipment! Make sure the TV, computer, iPad or other devices are properly connected and working.
Find several guys who can take turns opening and closing meeting rooms.
EVERYONE makes sure the room is put back in order.
The Coach should send out emails on a regular basis to keep men informed of the next workout.
The Coach should create and maintain a contact list of names, email addresses and phone numbers for follow up.
The Coach and Assistant Coach should be aware of men who are constant "no shows". Let them know they are missed. We suggest a team member be assigned to make sure this happens.
