Positive Coaching Alliance Partners with FLLL


Fort Lauderdale Little League Board has voted to partner with Positive Coaching Alliance. 

Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) "BETTER ATHLETES, BETTER PEOPLE"
 is a national non-profit organization to create a positive, character-building youth sports environment.

Since its founding in 1998, PCA has established 18 chapters nationwide, partnered with roughly 3,500 schools and youth sports organizations to deliver more than 20,000 live group workshops, reaching 19.2 million youth. PCA offers interactive online courses and has thousands of multimedia tips and tools for coaches, parents, athletes, and leaders available free of charge on PCADevZone.org. PCA also runs two annual awards programs: a scholarship program for high school student-athletes and a coach award program to recognize youth and high school coaches who strive to win and teach life lessons.

PCA gains support from a National Advisory Board of elite coaches, professional and Olympic athletes, organization leaders, and academics who share PCA's mission including Dusty Baker, Carol Dweck, Herm Edwards, Julie Foudy, Phil Jackson, and Steve Kerr. PCA is proud to partner with more than 50 national governing bodies, youth-serving organizations and professional leagues and teams including Boys & Girls Club of America, National Basketball Association, Major League Baseball, and US Lacrosse.

FLLL has been working to improve training for our players / coaches over the last year. Partnering with PCA will be another tool offered to help Coaches be more effective leaders and using the power of positive to help players reach their potential.

All Coaches will partake in a 90 minutes course called  Double-Goal Coach®: Coaching for Winning and Life Lessons.
