Share This Resource

The downloadable resource below is a part of PCA's collection of movie discussion guides, which aim to help you make the most out of movie viewing with your team or child. Movies provide a plethora of "teachable moments" that can be seized upon by coaches and parents to help young athletes take away lessons that will help them be successful, contributing members of society.

Kicking & Screaming tells the story of Phil Weston, a soccer parent and coach of his own son who turns from a caring dad to an abusive coach on a quest to redeem his own struggles as a former soccer player who could not live up to his father’s expectations. This film includes themes of coaching your own child, being a sports parent, over-competitiveness in youth sports, and the coach-parent relationship.
