Positive Coaching Alliance

Positive Coaching Alliance is now accepting nominations for its 2009 National Youth Sports Award Ceremony sponsored by Deloitte. Deadline for nominations is November 30, 2008.

The Double-Goal Coach® Award is given to coaches whose first goal is winning, and whose second, more-important goal is teaching life lessons through sports.

Award Eligibility for Coaches
Coaches eligible for PCA Awards must meet these requirements:

  • Their coaching experience must be with athletes of high school age or younger.
  • They must have at least two years of experience as a head coach.
  • They must have been actively coaching within the past two years.
  • PCA Trainers are not eligible.

Meanwhile, the Honoring the Game Award for organizational excellence is presented to schools and youth sports programs.

Award Eligibility for Schools and Youth Sports Organizations

  • This annual award recognizes individual youth sports organizations (YSOs) and schools from throughout the U.S., whose programs teach players not only athletic skills but also help them develop positive character traits that will serve them throughout their lifetimes.
