The “starting team” should consist of 3-5 members. Once you reach 8-10 members, consider starting a new group.
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- and men will keep coming back.
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 at least twice per month.
Commit to follow the “Team” meeting format faithfully.
Follow the content lineup for each Season.
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.

Each team member needs to make a hard copy of the Workout Guide/Questions, so that, they 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/Questions prior to attending the workout.
Encourage every team member to bring his personalized Workout Guide/Questions to the workout, so that, they can refer to their notes during the Huddle Discussion portion of the workout.
Encourage every team member to keep his Workout Guides/Questions 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.
