Coaches are some of the most important people in the lives of children and young adults. They teach meaningful lessons, they lend a caring ear and a helpful boost up, and they help shape our childrenâ€™s personalities for years to come.
At TeamSnap, we think youth sports coaches are truly some of the most important people in the world. Itâ€™s why we are grateful for the coaches we had, the coaches our kids currently have and, in some cases, the coaches we are. With this sentiment in mind, weâ€™ve once again proudly sponsored the Positive Coaching Allianceâ€™s Double-Goal Coach Award.
The Double-Goal CoachÂ® Award, now in its 15th year, is one of the highest honors a U.S. youth sports coach can receive. Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA), a national non-profit built developing â€œBetter Athletes, Better People,â€ works to provide all youth and high school athletes a positive, character-building youth sports experience, and thatâ€™s a mission TeamSnap supports fully.
The Double-Goal CoachÂ® Award is named so because it honors coaches who pursue both wins and the more important goal of teaching life lessons through sports.
Take a look at this video featuring Lawrence â€œTrooperâ€ Johnson, one of last yearâ€™s winners â€” shown at the PCA event, where he accepted his award for a glimpse at the kind of exemplary coach the PCA Double-Goal CoachÂ® Award honors, then consider nominating an inspirational coach you know.
The 50 national winners of the 15th Double-Goal CoachÂ® Award will each receive $200, a certificate, recognition in PCA’s website, social media, newsletters and media campaigns; and the chance to be one of a few winners to receive an all-expenses-paid trip to accept the honor in California during PCA’s National Youth Sports Awards Dinner and Auction Presented by TeamSnap. The schools and organizations that the award-winning coaches serve receive national publicity from the award, which also provides the opportunity to hold the coach up as a great example for other coaches to emulate.
The deadline to nominate a coach is Dec. 31, 2015. Please take a few minutes now to nominate a special coach in your life and pass along the word to others. Letâ€™s celebrate our coaches; they deserve it!
