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.

When The Game Stands Tall follows the true story of De La Salle’s high school football team, which won 151 consecutive games—the longest winning streak any sports team at any level in American History. The film concentrates on the challenges Coach Bob Ladouceur and his team faced after breaking this streak, and emphasizes the importance that it is not about how you fall, but how you get back up.
