Dallas Texans Soccer Club partners with Positive Coaching Alliance
Focuses on winning and life lessons for youth athletes
The Dallas Texans Soccer Club has established a partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) to ensure a positive, character-building experience for all youth athletes in the Dallas Texans Soccer Club programs. PCA (www.PositiveCoach.org), 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 Hassan Nazari, Founder of the Dallas Texans Soccer Club. “We recognize the tremendous opportunity for character-building that sports offers for today’s youth, so we are embracing PCA’s Double-Goal CoachTM model, where winning is one goal and teaching life lessons is the second, more-important goal.”
“We are delighted to partner with the Dallas Texans Soccer Club,” 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.”
The Dallas Texans are the first youth sports club in North Texas to adopt the PCA program. The workshops are scheduled to begin in January 2009.
