"Focuses on winning and life lessons for youth athletes"

January 28, 2015, South Central PA– PA District 14 Little League® Organizations comprised of Bermudian Little League, Carlisle Little League, Dillsburg Little League, Gettysburg Little League, Greencastle Little League, Hanover Little League, Newville Little League, North Eastern Little League, Penn Mar Little League, Shippensburg Little League, South Middleton Little League, Spring Grove Little , League, York Little League & York City Little League, has established a partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) to ensure a positive, character-building experience for all youth athletes in the District 14 Little League® programs. PCA (, a Stanford University-based non-profit organization, conducts workshops for coaches, organizational leaders, and parents involved in schools and sports organizations serving five-to-18-year-old athletes. PCA also provides workshops for high school athletes.

“Working with hundreds of youth sports organizations around the United States, PCA has developed practical tools and guidelines to help youth athletes, their coaches and parents get the most out of sports,” said Partner Representative Pete Kline. “We recognize the tremendous opportunity for character-building sports offers for today’s youth, so we are embracing PCA’s Double-Goal Coach® model, where winning is one goal and teaching life lessons is the second, more-important goal.”

“We are delighted to partner with PA District 14 Little Leagues organizations,” said PCA Executive Director Jim Thompson. “Together, we’ll strive to help their youth athletes take a positive approach to pursuing victories in athletic competition and in life.”

About Positive Coaching Alliance

Since its founding within the Stanford University Athletic Department in 1998, Positive Coaching Alliance has helped develop “Better Athletes, Better People” primarily through live group workshops, online courses and books by PCA Founder Jim Thompson for youth and high school sports coaches, parents, student-athletes and school/organizational leaders. In partnership with nearly 2,000 schools and youth sports organizations nationwide, PCA has conducted more than 13,000 live group workshops and impacted more than 5 million youth.

PCA workshops and courses strive to establish these 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 sport on three levels by improving oneself, teammates and the game as a whole.

PCA has the support of elite coaches and athletes on a National Advisory Board, including National Spokesperson and 11-time NBA Champion Coach Phil Jackson.
