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 Bryan Vargas shares that he does not like it when his teammates start having a negative attitude early in the game and do not play their best because they think they are going to lose.
