About Positive Coaching Alliance

Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) develops “Better Athletes, Better People” through resources for youth and high school sports coaches, parents, administrators and student-athletes. The hundreds of free audio-video and printable tips and tools at www.PCADevZone.org will help those involved in youth and high school sports create a positive, character-building youth sports culture here in our community.

PCA strives to transform high school and youth sports into a Development ZoneTM, where 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.
