Watch youth sport coaches from around the country put the principles from Play Positive and Positive Coaching Alliance to work with their athletes.

Before a big game, this high school football coach reminds his players that being nervous is normal, and he suggests they focus on the elements they can control. Watch this coach put Coaching For Mastery to practice. Notice how he mentions all three of PCA's "ELM" Tree principles - Effort, Learning and Mistakes.

Positive Coaching Alliance is proud to have worked with Liberty Mutual Insurance to create this video and other powerful resources.
