PCA Trainers often make their workshop facilitation look effortless to the participating coaches, parents and student-athletes. Of course, behind the scenes, that takes a lot of effort!
To make sure PCA Trainers are up to speed on all the latest in sports psychology, educational psychology, organizational culture, coaching, parenting, teaching and presentation techniques, each PCA Chapter holds a periodic Trainer Day. Trainers audition, rehearse and practice their craft to make sure messages in our workshops stick with attendees and empower them to create an optimal youth and high school sports culture.
In a busy last week of June for PCA Lead Trainer Joe Terrasi, he led our Trainer Day and facilitated a dynamic Positive Motivation workshop for rapt attendees at the Team Sports Conference & Expo, a national event for coaches and athletic directors held at Navy Pier.
