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:
The Double-Goal Coach®, who strives to win while also pursuing the more-important goal of life lessons through sports;
The Second-Goal Parent®, who concentrates on life lessons, while letting coaches and athletes focus on competing; and
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.
