2019 Double-Goal Coach® Award National Finalists

02.19.2019

Congratulations to each of these National Finalists who were selected from nearly 1,000 nominations representing 47 of the 50 states! Below is an alphabetical list of the National Finalists for PCA's 2019 Double-Goal Coach® Award presented by TeamSnap.

Thank you to the nearly 3,000 nominators and references who supported their coach through this process. If your coach was not named a National Finalist, we encourage you to nominate them again next year.

In the coming weeks our judges will select 50 National Winners who will each receive a $200 check, certificate from PCA, recognition on PCA's website, newsletters and media campaigns and an invitation with guest ($500 value) to accept the honor at PCA's National Youth Sports Awards & Benefit sponsored by Deloitte on Saturday, April 27th at Santa Clara University’s Leavey Center. Four winners will be selected to win an all expenses paid trip with guest to California for the event and welcomed on stage for a panel discussion.

Thanks to the generosity of the Taube Family Foundation, we will select one grand prize winner who will receive $10,000- $2,500 to the coach and $7,500 to the youth sports organization or school of their choice, to further the impact they are making as a Double-Goal Coach in their community! Stay tuned for this announcement.

Check out our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages for the announcement!

Select finalists will be added pending background checks. Questions? Contact PCA's Jennie Wulbrun.
