If you have not attended a PCA workshop please be prepared to attend the next workshop. We will notify all coaches when the next PCA workshop will be held. Please visit the PCA website www.positivecoach.org for free tips and tools to being a “Double Goal Coach”: • Our organization is committed to the principles of Positive Coaching Alliance and against a “win-at-all-cost” mentality. PCA calls a Positive Coach a “Double-Goal Coach®.” A win-at- all-cost coach has only one goal – to win. A Positive Coach shares that goal (wants to win) but has a second goal that is even more important – to use the sports experience to help young people learn “life lessons” and positive character traits that will help them be successful throughout their lives.
