Our Team

The PCA Movement is people powered. You don't impact millions of youth and high school sports coaches, parents and athletes without a great team. And you don't teach those coaches, parents and athletes about teamwork -- perhaps the key life lesson inherent in sports -- without fully understanding it yourself.

The strength of the PCA Movement lies in our team's diversity and breadth and depth of experience. The result is a cross-pollination of ideas -- from the youth sports coaches and parents on our Staff >> and PCA Trainers Corps >> to the internationally renowned pro coaches and athletes on our National Advisory Board >> to the high school-age student athletes on our National Student-Athlete Advisory Board >>.  We lean on the expertise and support of our Local and National Board of Directors >> and Leadership Council >>.

Those ideas manifest in unique products and services, including live group workshops, online courses, books and the free, expert advice in our website's Ask PCA feature, Momentum e-mail newsletter, and Talking Points e-mail series. Because the products and services stem from people of such diverse backgrounds and experiences, they impact a wide range of youth and high school sports coaches, parents, athletes and leaders.

Which brings that much more people power to the PCA Movement.
