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.

The Legend of Bagger Vance follows the story of Rannulph Junuh, a golfer seeking to get his career back on track despite the mental stresses of the Great Depression and the past trauma of World War I. This film includes themes of mental preparation and focus in sports, coping with societal pressure, overcoming struggle, trusting your coach as a player, respecting your opponents, and honoring the game.
