Positive Coaching Alliance Information

Coaching Workshop:
SnVYSA is very excited to announce our partnership with the Positive Coaching Alliance. Our purpose is to offer SnVYSA Coaches, Parents, and Players workshops and resources to help transform the culture into a positive, character-building experience that results in Better Athletes, Better People.

"Encouraging athletes with positive reinforcement helps them hear and heed the necessary corrections. With that winning combination of truthful, specific praise and constructive criticism, athletic performance improves and so do the chances that kids stick with sports longer and learn all the valuable life lessons inherently available through organized competition.

Academic research and real-world scoreboard results from millions of coaches, parents and athletes that PCA has trained and educated prove what the pro and college coaches on PCA's National Advisory Board already know: Positive is powerful."

Please visit www.PositiveCoach.org to read more about the mission of PCA and the amazing coaches and players who are involved and serve on their Advisory Board.
