Roll Red Roll Toolkits

Publish Date: 
Media Type: 

Roll Red Roll is a documentary film about a sexual assault in Steubenville, OH, and how it impacted the town and garnered national attention. Since its release in 2018, Roll Red Roll has led to conversations about rape culture, the role sport plays in sexual violence, and how to create lasting social change.

RALIANCE, the Roll Red Roll social impact team, Open Door Abuse Awareness Prevention, and MenChallenging partnered to create two toolkits to help coaches, athletic administrators, guidance counselors, and sexual violence prevention advocates discuss the film with their student athletes to spark social change. The first toolkit adapts conversations, discussion questions, and selected clips in thematic sections for college athletes, while the second toolkit focuses on high school athletes. Student athletes have the potential to affect not only their own beliefs and behavior, but that of their teammates and the school as a whole.

These toolkits are designed to prepare coaches, administrators, and counselors to discuss sexual assault prevention simply and clearly with student athletes, and to teach athletes how they can play an active role in rape prevention.

Available for purchase, the college toolkit includes 4 different thematic tracks, covering the major themes raised in the film; a discussion guide, that lists all of these themes, the scenes that relate to them and suggestions for discussion; and the 14 associated video clips referenced in the guides.

Covering the same themes as the college toolkit, the high school guide is available for free from Roll Red Roll’s website. The high school guide is shorter and tailored to meet the needs of high school coaches, administrators, and counselors.

Both guides are available through Roll Red Roll’s website. Purchase the college guide here and download the high school guide for free here. To learn more about these toolkits, see PreventConnect’s webinar recording, New Toolkit for Discussing Sexual Violence with Student Athletes.
