From A Kid's Perspective: What I Remember About The Game

Share This Resource

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 best to 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 Derek Sisbarro shares an experience where his team lost very badly to another team, but explains that it was a memorable moment because he had a good coach and he and his teammates practiced maintaining a positive attitude throughout the season, regardless of result.
