The “starting team” should be no more than 2-4 members. As you grow you can consider starting another “Training Camp” workout team or work toward becoming a “Regular Season” workout team (8-12 members).
Appoint two team members to be the "Coach" and the “Assistant Coach” to lead the team. It is good to have multiple men who can lead the workouts.
Start and stop on time. This respects others time and it is attractive to men to stay on schedule (one less reason to quit).
Find a location and set a date to begin. You can meet in your homes, parish facility, office or any quiet and private place.
You should meet weekly or at least twice per month.
Commit to follow the “Training Camp” meeting format faithfully.
Follow the content lineup for Season #1.
View or listen to series episodes for free streaming on-line at the CTG website (www.crossingthegoal.com) or you can purchase a DVD through the website.
A Workout Guide containing workout questions and reference material for the series episode can be downloaded for free from the CTG website.
Make a hard copy of the Workout Guide for each team member so that you can each make personal notes.
Encourage every team member to do a Pregame Film Study -- to view or listen to the episode for the next workout and to download and review the corresponding Workout Guide prior to attending the workout.
Encourage every team member to bring his personalized Workout Guide to the workout so that you can refer to your notes during the Huddle Discussion portion of the workout.
Encourage every team member to keep his Workout Guides in a notebook.
All team members must make a concerted effort to create a personal action item 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).
Keep a copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church available during workouts.
Focus on your own spiritual training.
