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.

This resource, originally produced by Coaching Corps shows that understanding how kids learn best can help coaches intentionally design sport programs through which their players will not only grow, but thrive. Coaching Corps' How Kids Learn Best outlines recommendations that coaches can keep in mind to maximize their time with their athletes.
