Each year McLean Youth Athletics sponsors Positive Coaching Alliance workshops.  These workshops are FREE OF CHARGE to all MYA coaches.


Positive Coaching Alliance workshops help prepare coaches to create a positive and more effective learning experience for players. PCA is endorsed by coaches such as Phil Jackson and Mike Krzyzewski and will make coaches more professional, more effective and more knowledgeable about how to communicate and connect with athletes to get them to perform their best.  If you want to gain a competitive advantage over other coaches, these workshops are for you.


What is the Positive Coaching Alliance?

Founded as a non-profit in 1998, Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) is committed to providing all youth and high school athletes a positive, character-building youth sports experience. To that end, PCA has conducted more than 10,000 live group workshops nationwide for more than 475,000 youth and high school sports coaches, parents, student-athletes and school/organizational leaders. Through workshops and companion online courses, PCA has impacted more than 4 million youth. PCA’s partnership network includes more than 1,700 youth sports organizations, cities and schools.
