Senior Partnership Manager, East Territory (New England)
Blog Author, Our Staff, Trainers - New England
Chris joined Positive Coaching Alliance in August 2016 as the Partnership Manager of its New England Chapter. As the Partnership Manager for Chris is responsible for prospecting, developing and closing partnership opportunities in New England. Key in this process is demonstrating the value of PCA programs for youth sport organizations and schools, resulting in an increased PCA partnership base for PCA-New England.
Prior to joining PCA, Chris oversaw the day-to-day operations of Frozen Ropes - one of the area's largest and most successful baseball and softball training centers. During his 10 years at Frozen Ropes, Chris worked with players of all ages, coaches, league directors, and youth sports organizations helping them achieve positive, character-building experiences through sports. His passion for PCA's mission is also what motivates him in his position as the commissioner of Wayland Little League's Developmental Program and Coaching Coordinator. Chris also addresses topics in youth sports and coaching in his monthly column, The Volunteer Coach, which is published in the New England Baseball Journal.
As a player, Chris played college baseball at Gettysburg College -- and every intramural program the school could offer! Chris loves all sports - and this includes old man softball - because of its ability to teach us life lessons and challenge us in ways other activities simply cannot. After graduating from Gettysburg College, Chris served as an assistant baseball coach at Newbury College in Brookline, MA for two seasons.
Chris resides in Wayland, MA with his wife Gina and three children whom he hopes will have a lifelong love of sports.
