We are thrilled to reveal the 2012 winners of PCA's Double-Goal Coach® Awards Presented by Liberty Mutual Insurance. Each of the 20 award winners from throughout the U.S. will receive a stunning trophy, $250 and appearances in PCA's media campaigns, website and e-mail newsletters.

Thanks to the hundreds of nominators and testimonial writers who brought to our attention so many inspirational coaches. The overall quality of the nominees and our 50 finalists is heartening to anyone who cares about youth sports.
