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 that he admires teammates who work hard, are always willing to help teammates on and off the field, and make it clear that they care about the team than themselves.

Coaches should keep these qualities in mind as they look to create cohesive teams and can notice what qualities athlete's respect and look for and expect from one another.
