Share This Resource

Positive Coaching Alliance and Coaching Corps are joining forces to become a powerhouse organization dedicated to optimizing the positive impact of youth sports on kids. Research shows that a positive youth sports experience teaches teamwork, develops leadership skills, creates opportunities for increased diversity, equity, and inclusion and builds community. Our vision is to build a world where every child benefits from a positive youth sports experience with a coach who inspires them to become the best version of themselves.

Identifying and addressing the basic needs of your young players can help you create an engaging, successful team environment. In this resource originally produced by Coaching Corps, learn about kid's B.A.S.E. needs - Belonging, Autonomy, Skill Building, and Experiences - that will help players in your program thrive.
