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

High-profile televised sports provide many great examples for teaching young athletes life lessons. Coaches can engage their athletes by connecting their own efforts and learnings with those of higher-level athletes. In this example, the coach talks about recent Olympic Hockey games to tie in what he is trying to teach the kids. He seizes recent hockey headlines as a teachable moment.

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