PCA-Chicago has partnered with the Chicago Fire Academy to provide Triple-Impact Competitor and Second-Goal Parent workshops to its student-athletes and parents as part of their ongoing, off-field training initiative. These elite athletes of the U12-U18 Academy teams worked with PCA trainer Joe Scally on May 2 on how they can best not only honor their teammates, the great game of soccer and themselves, but also how they can best serve their community as an exceptional athlete and person.

In this clip, Chicago Fire Youth Academy Player Bryan Vargas shares the qualities of an older player he looks up to. The older player sets a good example because he loves the game and is able to adjust to mistakes made in the game.
