PCA Tips

  • Your children's youth sports experience will end, and it may happen suddenly. Hopefully, you will not look back and think, “I wish I had enjoyed it more instead of obsessing over performance, or playing time or the team's record." Enjoy the experience; it will end too soon.
  • "Steady your gaze on the Big Picture, not temporary on-field victory, but long-term character development that will help your children throughout their lives and enable them to help your grandchildren."
  • "Avoid the dreaded PGA.  Not the Professional Golfer's Association but the Post Game Analysis.  If you find yourself doing most of the talking as you're breaking down the game on the way home, it's probably time to change the subject."
  • "Great players have the ability to "leave it on the field." After a game, regardless of the result, move on to something else your child will enjoy."
