Announcing the 2020 Winners of PCA's College Scholarship


Positive Coaching Alliance is especially proud to announce the winners of the 2020 Triple-Impact Competitor® Scholarship in a year like no other we’ve had before.  These student-athletes have shown how they positively impacted sport on three levels: by making themself, their teammates, and their community better, however, they have done so while navigating a worldwide pandemic that put a complete halt to the sports they love.  

Many of our applicants shared the resiliency, creativity, and determination they had to muster to get through the last few months of school and in many cases the complete shutdown of their sport mid-season. Additionally, they are all now in the first few months of their senior season which most certainly is not shaping up the way they had envisioned it to be.

We salute you, senior student-athletes, for your grit and perseverance as you’ve pivoted to use the many characteristics you gained through sports to help you get through these unprecedented times.  

Congratulations to all of our finalists on to naming our 2020 winners! Each winner will receive a minimum of a $1,000 scholarship to be paid in the spring of 2021 after appropriate documents are received. Each winner will also receive a code for free access to PCA's Triple-Impact Competitor®: A Leadership Workshop for Athletes online course which we ask you to complete before November 19th. We'll be in touch with more details about a virtual awards event in your honor on November 19th, so please save the date!
