TWIN CITY YOUTH SOCCER partners with positive coaching alliance

Focuses on winning and life lessons for youth athletes

July 27, 2014 Winston-Salem, NC– Twin City Youth Soccer Association has established a partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) to ensure a positive, character-building experience for all youth athletes in Twin City Youth Soccer Association programs. PCA (www.PositiveCoach.org), a Stanford University-based non-profit organization, conducts workshops for coaches, organizational leaders, and parents involved in schools and sports organizations serving five-to-18-year-old athletes. PCA also provides workshops for high school athletes.

“Working with hundreds of youth sports organizations around the United States, PCA has developed practical tools and guidelines to help youth athletes, their coaches and parents get the most out of sports,” said Scott Wollaston, Executive Director of TCYSA. “We recognize the tremendous opportunity for character-building sports offers for today’s youth, so we are embracing PCA’s Double-Goal Coach® model, where winning is one goal and teaching life lessons is the second, more-important goal.”

“We are delighted to partner with Twin City Youth Soccer Association,” said PCA Executive Director Jim Thompson. “Together, we’ll strive to help their youth athletes take a positive approach to pursuing victories in athletic competition and in life.”

The workshops are scheduled on Monday and Tuesday, August 18th and 19th at BB&T Soccer Park.  The workshops will include a Triple Impact Competitor workshop for all u15 to u18 Twins Girls players, and a Seond-Goal Parent Workshop for all parents of players from Academy programs through u14.

PCA workshops and courses strive to establish these prevailing models in youth and high school sports:

  • The Double-Goal Coach®, whose first goal is winning, and whose second, more-important goal is 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.

PCA has the support of elite coaches and athletes on a National Advisory Board, including National Spokesperson and 11-time NBA Champion Coach Phil Jackson.
