PCA ensures sports are ‘done right’ with programming that is research-based and designed to have impact at three levels in a youth sports organization or school:

Youth experience improved life skills and character development.
Coaches become more positive and increase their focus on using sports to teach life skills.
Youth Sports Organizations and Schools see their cultures become more positive and everyone involved has more fun.

The tools taught in PCA courses are researched-based behavioral concepts that apply to many contexts. Anyone who participates in PCA programming – whether it be in youth sports, on business teams, or in personal relationships – can benefit, and expect to see improved ability to work as part of a team, greater personal resilience, and an increased capacity to bounce back from mistakes.
