- MISS INDEPENDENT | for HHCA Middle School Girls (10:00 AM-12:00 PM)
This course teaches middle school girls to recognize the signs of unhealthy relationships and the dangers hidden in social media. Participants learn to use their voice, recognize their own worth, and fight back if needed, with precision and determination, to get to safety and get help quickly.
- SASS 1 | for HHCA Upper School Girls (1:00-4:15 PM)
Girls are trained physically and mentally for the most common threats to their safety. This course is paramount to creating a community of women and girls who know their inherent worth and how to advocate for it, both verbally and physically. Training will include hands-on/active self-defense & awareness training led by instructors from SASS GO.
- SASS 2 | for HHCA Upper School Girls who have completed the SASS 1 course (4:30-7:45 PM)
Girls review material covered in SASS 1 and learn additional physical and mental skills to safeguard them in various scenarios. This course builds on the power and purpose discovered in SASS 1. This class will involve slightly more physical activity than SASS 1. Training will include hands-on/active self-defense & awareness training led by instructors from SASS GO.
Topics covered for Upper School girls include: improving situational awareness; protection against physical and psychological abuse; escaping abusive relationships; learning from recent attacks, victims, and cases. Also covered: college campus security; dorm room/apartment safety; safety in numbers; Uber, Lyft, rideshare cautions; parking lot/parking garage safety; and instruction in the usage of pepper spray, stun guns, and other personal self-defense resources.
Thanks to a generous grant from the Izant Family Foundation, these courses are being offered at no cost to HHCA families.
