On Monday, March 12 at 7:00 we will be having a mandatory workshop for all coaches working with our youth. This workshop is open to team managers and parents. The workshop is entitled "Double-Goal Coach: Positive Motivation" and it is put on by Positive Coaching Alliance. The PCA has a strong reputation locally as well as nationally. They work hand-in-hand with many organizations throughout our area in helping teach our athletes to have a positive, character-building youth sports experience. This workshop is required.
NOTE: This is a different training session then last year, which was "Winning/Life Lessons".
This years workshop: Double-Goal Coach: Culture, Practices, and Games further illustrates how coaches use PCA principles to build a team culture that players and their parents buy into, thus leading to life lessons and improved athletic performance in practices and games.
All coaches, assistants, and managers must complete a concussion certificate.
