Positive Coaching

June 12, 2003

As a grateful attendee and volunteer coach, I believe the Positive Coaching Alliance workshop should be mandatory for all coaches of school-age children ("Group Teaches Parents How to Be Good Sports," June 9). Many volunteer coaches have little or no training in fundamental playing skills; the very least they should have is a solid grasp of PCA principles. A negative coach can teach kids to give up -- on sports, on themselves, on life. The PCA proves that, at least for kids, sports really is a metaphor for life.
