Our Work


PCA's work helps millions of boys and girls throughout the U.S. to win games and win in life. Watch this video featuring Steve Young to better understand the need for PCA's work, which provides a positive, character-building experience for all youth athletes.

Then, explore this section of our site to learn more about the benefits of partnership and ask that a PCA representative contact you about a partnership for your school or youth sports organization (YSO).


Our live workshops, online courses, books, website and other publications combine to create a systems-based impact on youth and high school sports leaders, coaches, parents and athletes. A PCA Partnership for your school or youth sports organization includes a customized mix of all these elements:

  • Our Live Workshops are led by PCA Trainers, more than 100 throughout the U.S., who all have deep coaching (and often sports parenting) experience and are equipped with latest research-based sports and educational psychology. PCA has presented more than 13,000 live workshops! Learn more about our workshops.
  • Our Online Courses feature video from such PCA National Advisory Board Members as Phil Jackson, Doc Rivers, Shane Battier, Julie Foudy, Dusty Baker, Herm Edwards, Summer Sanders and Joe Ehrmann. See our online course descriptions and demos.
  • Books by PCA Founder and CEO Jim Thompson accompany our live workshops and are also great standalone resources and gifts for coaches, parents and athletes. Purchase A Book.
  • Our website, Ask PCA feature, Momentum e-newsletter and Partner-only publications, such as Leadership Game Plan and 2-Minute Drills reinforce the information and inspiration in our workshops, courses and books.

All of our content -- live, online and in print -- supports the three key principles: Redefining "Winning" as Mastery of Sport, Filling Emotional Tanks and Honoring the Game.
