U307: Positive Coaching: Getting the Best From Athletes

Course Description

U307: Positive Coaching: Getting the Best From Athletes is a live, interactive course presented by PCA (Positive Coaching Alliance) at the 2024 National Congress in Minneapolis, MN.

In this 60-minute workshop, coaches and their PCA Trainer facilitator will engage in interactive discussion of the impact of Positive Coaching on athletes. We share research from the world's top sport psychologists and researchers, some who serve on PCA's National Advisory Board and have provided insight exclusive to PCA.

Coaches will learn exactly why positive motivation helps athletes to improve their performance and to process the life lessons available through sport that impact them in athletic competition and beyond.

Coaches will explore scenarios and apply this knowledge to some of the most difficult team and player motivation challenges:
  • Motivating difficult-to-reach players and underperforming teams
  • Having "hard conversations" with players
  • Communicating "Receivable Criticism"
  • Giving players an "Emotional Tank Vocabulary" for use with themselves and their teammates.
Attendees will receive a certificate of participation to display in their gym, as well as, USA Gymnastics University credit.

This course is a free course.
