The PCA Blog

Positive Coaching Alliance’s (PCA) vision is a world where every young person, regardless of social or economic circumstance, benefits from a positive youth sports experience with a coach who inspires them to become the best version of themselves in the game and in life.

Thank you to those who took the time to nominate a deserving coach. We received nearly 500 outstanding nominations for coaches who inspire their athletes in sports and in life. Thank you to each and every coach who is doing their part to ensure a positive youth sports experience for all!

Please join us in recognizing and celebrating the 2024 Regional Winners of PCA’s Coach of the Year Award presented by TeamSnap.

These coaches, listed alphabetically, were selected from nearly 500 nominated coaches who received over 1,000 letters of reference. 

CONGRATULATIONS!

In the coming weeks, our selection committee will identify 10 National Winners who will each receive $500, and recognition on PCA's website, newsletters, and media campaigns.

 Additionally, one Coach of the Year will be selected and win $5,000 for their school or program and receive an all-expense paid trip to San Francisco to be featured at our annual Game Changer Awards & Benefit at the Chase Center, home of the Golden State Warriors, on March 21, 2024.

All Regional Winners will receive free access to take PCA’s online coach course. We will be in touch after this announcement to provide the code for free access. If you are interested in learning more about other PCA online courses, please click this link.

Thanks again to all of you who nominated a coach for their time and commitment to youth athletes across the US! If your coach was not named a Regional Winner this year, we encourage you to nominate them again next year. You can sign up here for a reminder to nominate your coach when the 2025 opportunity opens in summer 2024.
