PCA National Advisory Board Member Mary Fry (@MaryFry10) is a professor in the Department of Health, Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Kansas. She also is the Director of the KU Sport and Exercise Psychology Lab and oversees the graduate program in the area.

Fry talks about how everyone needs to come together in order to create a caring climate. How the coaching staff treats each other, how the players treat each other, and the interaction between coaches and players are all fundamental elements to creating the welcoming and nurturing environment that we all know and love.
