PCA and Coaching Corps both share a desire to ensure high quality coaches are engaging with our youth, particularly those who have experience in social/emotional skill development and can work with youth to identify, target and help improve deficiencies. With these two organizations working together to ensure the best options for youth, PCA will funnel volunteer coaches to Coaching Corps for best placement in communities with the most need.

Unengaged or disrespectful players can make a difficult job - coaching - even harder. It's important for coaches to understand that young people don't usually misbehave just to break the rules. Coaches that can identify the context of their players' behavior will be set up for success - and the players' success. This resource from Coaching Corps guides coaches to understand how trauma can impact a kid's behavior and how to respond.
