2023 National Double-Goal Coach® Award Winners Presented by TeamSnap Announced

Congratulations to the 2023 Double-Goal Coach® National Award Winners!

Presented by TeamSnap

We are excited to announce the 25 National Winners of PCA’s 2023 Double-Goal Coach® Award presented by TeamSnap! Our belief at Positive Coaching Alliance is that kids benefit from a positive youth sports experience when they have a coach who inspires them to become the best version of themselves in the game and in life. These coaches are making that impact with a focus on the whole athlete and the belief that a positive approach will result in the best outcomes for kids.

Thank you to everyone involved in the nomination of these coaches. We were thrilled and inspired to hear their stories of positivity, impact, and mentorship with their athletes. Our youth are in good hands with coaches like this leading the way! Thank you for your dedication, time, and energy!

The 25 National Winners will each receive $500 and recognition on PCA’s website, newsletters, and media campaigns. Additionally, one “Coach of the Year” will be selected from this group and receive an all-expense paid trip to join us in San Francisco, CA at the Game Changer Awards and Benefit on January 26th at the Chase Center (Home of the Golden State Warriors) where they will be recognized on stage along with many Bay Area professional sports stars! The event will be televised by NBC Bay Area Sports. Stay tuned for that announcement!

Special thanks to our Double-Goal Coach® program sponsor, TeamSnap, for helping to make this program possible!
