Positive Coaching Alliance

Parents & Players,

One of the topics during our Parent/Player meeting is related to the Positive Coaching Alliance organization.  We have been strong proponents of this organization for the last 10 years.  The 3 basic concepts relating to Coaching, Parents, and Competitors are: 

  1. The Double-Goal Coach®, who strives to win while also pursuing the more-important goal of life lessons through sports;
  2. The Second-Goal Parent®, who concentrates on life lessons, while letting coaches and athletes focus on competing; and
  3. The Triple-Impact Competitor®, who strives to impact sport on three levels by improving oneself, teammates and the game as a whole.

As coaches we will strive to be Double-Goal coaches and will work with our players to help them become Triple-Impact Competitors.  We hope you will also see the value and will strive to be Second-Goal Parents.

Please click here to visit the Positive Coaching web site to learn more about this organization. There are some great tools for parents to help them to have positive interactions with their athlete's.
