12/4/2018, Fremont, CA – Fremont Youth Soccer Club has established a partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA), a national non-profit developing “Better Athletes, Better People” by working to provide all youth and high school athletes a positive, character-building sports experience.
The partnership provides Fremont Youth Soccer Club access to PCA’s training for coaches, sports parents, student-athletes and administrators, comprising live group workshops, online courses, books by PCA Founder Jim Thompson and additional online resources, such as e-mailed follow-up tips and reminders.
PCA has partnered with roughly 3,500 youth sports organizations, schools, districts, conferences, and park-and-rec departments to create a Development ZoneTM culture, where the goal is using youth and high school sports to develop Better Athletes, Better People, Thompson said. “We look forward to working with Fremont Youth Soccer Club to create the best possible experience for the youth athletes. Our research-based materials combine the latest in sports psychology, education and practical advice from top pro and college coaches and athletes that help improve athletic performance while also ensuring kids take life lessons from sports that will help them throughout the rest of their lives.”
Dai Redwood, Executive Director of Fremont Youth Soccer Club said. “Fremont YSC has for many years been a player centric program, focusing on the true development of a player in an environment where players can be creative, problem solvers, and good human beings through life experiences in youth sports. Our philosophy is that education is for all, including not only it’s players but also the parents and coaches. An official partnership with PCA gives us a great opportunity to provide workshops and continued education for everyone at the club.”
The workshops are scheduled to take place throughout 2019 for parents, players, and the coaches.
