Thanks so much for your interest and participation in the Double-Goal Coach® Awards Program!

One coach will be named the PCA National Coach of The Year at our virtual National Youth Sports Awards and Benefit in April 2021 and win the $10,000 Taube Family Prize in Recognition of Excellence in Coaching. ($2,500 to the coach and $7,500 to the youth sports organization or school of their choice.) Thanks to Taube Philanthropies for their generosity in supporting this program!

Coaches play an incredibly influential role in the lives of athletes. Often players spend more time with their coaches than anyone else outside of the home environment. That's why it's crucial that we recognize and hold great coaches up as an example to others. Is your coach a Double-Goal Coach®? If so, please consider nominating them for the Double-Goal Coach Award for 2022 which will open August 1, 2021. For a reminder to nominate your coach in August 2021, please provide your information here.
