York County Lacrosse Association Partners With Positive Coaching Alliance - Focuses on winning and life lessons for youth athletes.
The York County Lacrosse Association (YCLA) has established a partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) to ensure a positive, character-building experience for all youth athletes in York Adams lacrosse programs. PCA (Visit PCA - New Window), 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 Bob Rhein, President, York County Lacrosse Association. "We recognize the tremendous opportunity for character-building that sports offer for today’s youth, so we are embracing PCA’s Double-Goal CoachTM model, where winning is one goal and teaching life lessons is the second, more-important goal."
"We are delighted to partner with the York County Lacrosse 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."
