TBL PARTNERS WITH THE POSITIVE COACHING ALLIANCE
In February of 2015, the TBL Board voted to partner with the Positive Coaching Alliance, a quickly growing national organization that works with youth and high school sports leaders, coaches, athletes and parents to help promote a positive, character building youth sports experience.
PCA offers a number of tools for all of the aforementioned groups.
PCA also offers workshops and courses that strive to transform high school and youth sports into a "Development Zone" where the goal is to become Better Athletes, Better People and the following become prevailing models in youth and high school sports.
· The Double-Goal Coach, who strives to win while also pursuing the more important goal of teaching life lessons through sports.
· The Second-Goal Parent, who concentrates on life lessons, while letting coaches and athletes focus on competing.
· The Triple-Impact Competitor, who strives to impact sports on three levels by improving oneself, teammates and the game as a whole.
· The Single- Goal Leader, who works to create a Development Zone within their individual school/youth sport organization.
PCA gains support from a National Advisory Board, including National Spokesperson and 11-time NBA Champion Coach Phil Jackson, and many other top coaches, athletes, organization leaders and academics who share PCA's vision.
