Curry Brand, Positive Coaching Alliance, and Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation partner to train over 300 coaches in celebration of national coach of the year winner

Oakland, CA – In recognition of PCA’s 2022 Double-Goal Coach® of the Year winner, Breasha Pruitt, coaches and leaders of the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation will receive leadership and positive youth development workshops provided by Positive Coaching Alliance.  These workshops will be supported by Curry Brand, powered by Under Armour, which will advance its mission to impact 100,000 youth by 2025 and train 15,000 coaches.

In celebration of the power of a positive youth sports experience and the impact of a caring and well-trained coach, Positive Coaching Alliance named Breasha Pruitt as the 2022 Double-Goal Coach of the year. The Double-Goal Coach award is a commitment to creating positive sports opportunities for all kids and how to pursue both winning and the more important goal of teaching life lessons through sports. 

As part of Breasha’s honor, Curry Brand will fund workshops in the home state of the national winner. 

The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation will take part in a series of six workshops facilitated by Positive Coaching Alliance. The corporation is the third largest school district in the state of Indiana with an enrollment of more than 22,000 students and 3400 employees.
