Positive Coaching Alliance Chicago has partnered with the WNBA’s Chicago Sky, who hosted a workshop for student-athletes from 6-7 p.m. on Friday, May 19 prior to the Sky’s 2017 Opening Night match up versus the Atlanta Dream. In addition, the partnership throughout the 2017 WNBA Season will work to further improve the culture of youth sports and further promote an atmosphere of better athletes, better people through social media, educational workshops, community events and PCADevZone.org resource videos.
Attendees at all PCA-Chicago & Chicago Sky workshops will include representatives from the Chicago Sky High School of the Year Program which recognizes girls’ high school basketball teams in Illinois whose athletes demonstrate sportsmanship and leadership on and off the court.
Here is info about that workshop:
Workshop: Becoming A Triple-Impact Competitor®
This workshop for student-athletes teaches student-athletes how to become a Triple-Impact Competitor, impacting sport on three levels by working to improve oneself, teammates, and the game as a whole. These steps align with PCA principles shared with coaches in the Double-Goal Coach® workshops and with parents in the Second-Goal Parent® workshops. PCA strives to impact all coaches, parents, and athletes to change the culture of youth sports, from win-at-all-cost mentality to a character-building experience that is competitive and teaches life lessons.
The workshop gives space for student-athletes look within themselves to reach a higher level of performance and encourage teammates to follow suit. Student-athletes leave the workshop equipped with the information and inspiration necessary to lead in your school’s hallways and use their influence to set examples throughout the community that generate pride and support for your school’s athletics program.
