Over 40 million youth in the U.S. participate in sports today. The impact of coaches and parents on young athletes cannot be overstated. Together, they can teach goals, resiliency, integrity and teamwork to last children throughout their lives.

A positive youth sports culture results from parents, coaches, officials and leaders working together to ensure a great experience for youth athletes. Positive Coaching Alliance helps that process, hosting live workshops, online education, and awards programs for schools and leagues in order to create a youth sports culture that makes not only better athletes, but better people. It takes an intentional organization like PCA to change the culture and the way youth sports are played in this country.
