Request information from a PCA representative about partnering your school or youth sports organization with PCA.
Typically, an individual school or youth sports organization hosts a
Leadership workshop for its directors, a separate Double-Goal Coach
workshop for all its coaches, and a separate Second-Goal Parent
workshop. A Triple-Impact Competitor workshop is available for teenage
athletes in the school or organization.
PCA also offers
Partnerships that include workshops for school districts, conferences,
park-and-recreation organizations, leagues, and youth sports consortiums
in all 50 states and several other nations.
Each workshop takes
anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours, depending on our Partner's
preferences, and is led by a PCA Trainer with deep athletic and coaching
experience (usually at least three years at the high school level or
above). The Trainer explains PCA's three key principles -- Redefining
"Winning" as Mastery of Sport, Filling Emotional Tanks and Honoring the
Game -- and leads attendees through a series of interactive exercises
based on common youth sports scenarios.
The result is that the
group of leaders, coaches, parents or athletes begins to explore
different approaches for success and establishes a common vocabulary for
use in providing athletes a positive, character-building youth sports
Often, workshop attendees are "unfrozen" from
negative beliefs and practices they had accepted throughout their
sporting lives and experience an emotional awakening that benefits them,
their families, communities and most importantly, the youth athletes
