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.

Coach Carter, based on a true story, follows the life of Ken Carter, who returns to his high school in the underprivileged community of Richmond, California to coach high school basketball. The film includes themes of coaching your own child, discipline techniques of coaches, how to be a student-athlete, making good life choices, and succeeding against the odds.
