On PCA’s new Power of Positive podcast, powered by Tipevo (@TipevoHQ) PCA connects with athletes, coaches, and business leaders within the PCA community to discuss topics in youth and high school sports, leadership development, culture and of course...the Power of Positive!

Our Power of Positive Podcast interview features Danielle Slaton (@daniellevslaton), former USWNT player and Santa Clara University Hall of Fame Soccer player. Currently, she is a soccer analyst and will broadcast at this summer’s Women’s World Cup in France.

Jason Sacks (@jrsacks22), Vice President of Business Development and Philanthropy for PCA (@PositiveCoachUS), speaks with Danielle Slaton about her sports journey and why she decided to specialize in soccer in high school. She shares her thoughts on youth sports including early specialization and advice on how to keep joy in the game. She also adds how women’s soccer has become a platform for change for other women’s fields.

More insights from this podcast include:
