Nominate Your Shooting Coach for a Double-Goal Coach® Award

Positive Coaching Alliance’s Double-Goal Coach Award is given to youth and high school sports coaches from throughout the U.S. who embody the ideals of the Double-Goal Coach, striving to win, while also pursuing the more important goal of teaching life lessons through sports.

The 50 national award winners will receive $200; a certificate; recognition on PCA’s website, newsletters and media campaigns; and 2 tickets to the 2019 National Youth Sports Awards & Benefit sponsored by Deloitte ($500 value). Select winners will be selected to participate in a panel discussion during the event and will receive an all-expense paid trip to attend.

Nominations will close on November 30, 2018. Finalists will be announced in early 2019. Winners will be announced in Spring 2019.

Criteria

Nominees are assessed on the extent to which they reflect the model of a Double-Goal Coach, whose first goal is winning, and whose second, more-important goal is teaching life lessons through sports. A Double-Goal Coach behaves as follows:

• Takes a mastery approach to sport rather than a scoreboard orientation, teaching athletes to put forward maximum effort, continuously learn and improve, and not let themselves be stopped by mistakes or fear of mistakes.

• Fills Emotional Tanks of athletes, refusing to motivate through fear, intimidation, or shame. Recognizing that a player’s “Emotional Tank,” like the gas tank of a car, must be full in order to go anywhere, the Double-Goal Coach provides a fuel mixed of five specific, truthful praises for every specific, constructive correction.

• Honors the Game by respecting ROOTS (Rules, Opponents, Officials, Teammates, Self).

Selection Process

The Double-Goal Coach® Award Selection Committee will select Chapter Winners/National Finalists for the Double-Goal Coach® Award in early/mid February 2019.  Fifty National Winners will be announced in March 2019.

Apply for Scholarship from Positive Coaching Alliance

Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) invites high school athletes to apply for scholarships that are awarded to those who meet the high standards of a Triple-Impact Competitor.

PCA awards scholarships of $1,000-$2,000 (depending on location) to high school athletes, based on their essays explaining how they meet the standard defined in Elevating Your Game: Becoming a Triple-Impact Competitor by PCA Founder Jim Thompson:

    Personal Mastery: Making oneself better
    Leadership: Making one’s teammates better
    Honoring the Game: Making the game better

Eligibility extends to any high school junior residing anywhere in the U.S. and playing for a high school team or in club sports.

Nominate Your Coach for PCA Double-Goal Coaching Award

PCA Double-Goal Coaching Award Volunteer coaches are the backbone of the programs of the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation, as we couldn’t have teams or events without them. They largely determine what kind of experience our student athletes will have in the shooting sports, and their work with teams often goes far beyond shooting instruction and conducting shoots. One way that SSSF promotes a positive coaching environment for our teams is by providing PCA Double-Goal Coach training for all our coaches.

We know there are many coaches out there who deserve to be recognized for their extraordinary work in developing better athletes and better people. We would like to share a way for athletes and parents to reward these exceptional coaches — the PCA National Double-Goal Coach Award.

Each year PCA selects and publicizes 75 finalists. The 25 winners of this prestigious national award receive $250, a trophy, recognition in PCA’s website, newsletters, and media campaigns, and the chance to accept the honor in California during PCA’s National Youth Sports Awards Dinner and Auction Presented by Deloitte. The award also recognizes the organizations and schools of the award-winning coaches.

You can show your appreciation for a coach who deserves a big “thank you!” Nominate your coach for PCA’s National Double-Goal Coach Award.
