Positive Coaching Alliance - Mid-Atlantic
The PCA phrase "Honor the Game" is all about RESPECT. As coaches, parents, and players, we Honor the Game by respecting the Rules, Opponents, Officials, Teammates, and Self.
PCA Mid-Atlantic's Honor the Game Awards & Benefit is about celebrating all those who believe as we do, that when we respect the institution of youth sports as the ideal place to teach character and life lessons to kids, we get Better Athletes, Better People.
By supporting Honor the Game Awards & Benefit, sponsors are joining the Positive Coaching Alliance and supporting programs for youth in DC, MD, and VA that will enable them to see better life outcomes because they have access to a positive, character-building sports experience.
