Players Remember The Competition, Not The Outcome

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 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 Jamie Yoder shares that competing and challenging himself makes his efforts on the field worth more than a winning a game. He says that competition is about improving and always pushing yourself to the limit and knowing that you did you best.
