Partnered with PCA

 

As part of a targeted effort to provide the most positive environment possible for its youth athletes, East Fullerton Little League has partnered with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA), a Stanford University-based non-profit organization. PCA works with coaches, organizational leaders and parents to teach young athletes not only how to win, but also how to learn about teamwork, discipline, respect, and goal-setting through their sports experience.
 
Founded as a non-profit within the Stanford University Athletic Department in 1998, PCA has the mission of “transforming youth sports so sports can transform youth.” To that end, PCA has conducted roughly 5,000 live group workshops nationwide for more than 200,000 youth sports leaders, coaches, parents and athletes. Workshop attendees have helped create a positive, character-building youth sports environment for more than 2.2 million youth athletes.
 
PCA trains Double-Goal Coaches®, whose first goal is winning, and whose second, more-important goal is teaching life lessons through sports. This coaching method takes its name from “The Double-Goal Coach,” a book by PCA Founder and Executive Director Jim Thompson. PCA has the support of elite coaches and athletes including Los Angeles Lakers Head Coach Phil Jackson as PCA national spokesperson. For more information, go to www.positivecoach.org.
