A program 30 Years in the making...
All Citizen Athlete Project programs are online-initiated, real-life-activated… the Prentice Practice provides an opportunity to cultivate attributes that are key to developing core Life-Skills for a Happy AND Successful life; specifically, 7 Core Life-Skill families: Domestic, Social, Relationship, Problem Solving, Health & Fitness, Emotional, and Communication.
We accomplish this by providing a basic understanding of our 7 Core Attributes (online – one at a time) followed by a short exercise based in the nature of each Core Attribute. After completing this process for each Attribute, a certificate is given, plus a Citizen Prentice t-shirt for completing the 7th Attribute.

7 CORE ATTRIBUTES
These are the 7 Core Attributes the Citizen Prentice will Experience and Cultivate
“Have resolve behind ALL your actions.” Resolve relates to being committed to a direction of action. Resolve is about having a definite direction in mind, committing to an ideal action, and treating the possibility of failure as an opportunity to learn.
“Possess impartiality in ALL your endeavors.” Impartiality allows objectivity in any endeavor. Impartiality is about having a commitment to factual perspectives, having a definite intent for fairness, and a genuine contempt for hypocrisy.
“Bring dignity to ALL your relationships.” Dignity is related to respect and consideration for people’s value. Dignity is about giving someone a sense of value, a presumption of their high qualities, and that, no matter how dire or undesirable the circumstances, they are worthy of kindness and care.
“Have Calculus behind ALL your actions.” Problems are part of the human condition. Calculus within problem solving requires consistent use of characteristics. It requires a good and humble attitude, perception, use of a system, insight, and cooperation.
“Have Influence on ALL your actions.” Influence relates to being swayed indirectly or intangibly. Influence is about having a definite reason for doing something, without completely definable expectations or results, while definitely benefiting from its affect.
“Have heart behind ALL your actions.” Heart is the courage to never lose faith, and strength in the direction of actions. Heart is to be compassionate, to be generous and forgiving; to have an especially compassionate heart.
“Have harmony behind ALL your interactions.” Harmony requires that you keep things working cohesively together. Humans are social creatures and friendship, or friendliness is a basic component of connection. To maintain friendship, one must incorporate all manners of communication for those relationships to flourish.
The Citizen Prentice Practice
Our program requires two kinds of participants, a Prentice and an Advocate. 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 | ‘pren-təs’ | def > 1. an archaic word for apprentice.
noun | ˈad-və-kət’ | def > 2. one who supports or promotes the interests of a cause or group.
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 Prentice Practice provides the fundamental tools necessary to build a Great Life – the Citizen Athlete Project is committed to providing 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).
