The power of sports to transform lives, communities and our future in undeniable.
But 70% of kids drop sports by age 13 in part because of too much pressure to win, not having enough fun and negative coach and parent modeling.
The Positive Coaching Alliance mission is to transform the youth sports culture from a win-at-all-costs attitude to learning life lessons. When kids stay in sports longer they reap the benefits: good health, better attendance and performance in school, self confidence and all of the life lessons learned through competition.
PCA's Live Workshops and online resources have reached more than 8.6 million youth nationally to transform high school and youth sports into a Development Zone® culture, where the goal is to develop Better Athletes, Better People and the following become the prevailing models in youth and high school sports:
- The Double-Goal Coach®, who strives to win while also pursuing the more important goal of teaching life lessons through sports
- The Second-Goal Parent®, who concentrates on life lessons, while letting coaches and athletes focus on competing
- The Triple-Impact Competitor®, who strives to impact sport on three levels by improving oneself, teammates and the game as a whole.
