In June the Jr. Lakers launched their pilot Jr. NBA Program with Boys & Girls Clubs of Los Angeles. Former Lakers star AC Green gave their youth basketball coaches a tour of the Lakers practice facility and spoke about teamwork, fair play and the importance of being a good role model for youth athletes.
He then introduced PCA Trainer Ray Lokar for a Double-Goal Coach Workshop. The Lakers also incorporated PCA principles into their Jr. Lakers Manual. In the Fall, PCA-Los Angeles will conduct Double-Goal Coach Workshops for 28 Boys & Girls Clubs in the Jr. Lakers program. The Lakers are seed funders of the LA Chapter of PCA, and Jr. NBA is a National Partner of PCA.
