STRAKE JESUIT AND THE POSTIVE COACHING ALLIANCE
As part of a targeted effort to provide the most positive experience for its athletes, Strake Jesuit has established a partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA). PCA, a Stanford University-based non-profit organization, works with coaches, organizational leaders and parents to more effectively teach young athletes not only how to win, but also how to learn about teamwork, discipline, respect and goal-setting through their sports experience.

workshops have been held with coaches (above),
students (below) and parents.
In conjunction with this alliance, a number of PCA workshops for coaches, administrators, parents and student-athletes have been held.
Another part of this on-going partnership is the school's leadership committee. This group oversees the implementation of goals that the school set through the program. In addition, the committee has scheduled two follow-up workshops that will be held in February, one for parents and another for the student-athletes. The school will notify parents by e-mail and through the web site when the date is set for this next parent workshop.
The Positive Coaching Alliance was formed in 1998 to transform youth sports so that all young athletes enjoy a positive, character-building experience. PCA offers workshops nationwide for coaches, parents and youth sports leaders to equip them to positively impact today's young athletes.
