New Initiative in 2016 - 2017

Bexley City Schools has partnered with the Positive Coaching Alliance in an effort to provide district families, players, and coaches with knowledge, skills, and guidance necessary to create a healthy and positive experience for young athletes in the community.

Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) is a nonprofit organization founded at Stanford University with the mission to transform youth sports so sports can transform youth. PCA was created to transform the culture of youth sports to give all young athletes the opportunity for a positive, character-building experience.

PCA has three national goals: 

  1. Replace the "win-at-all-cost" model of coaching with the Double-Goal Coach®, who wants to win but has a second, more important, goal of using sports to teach life lessons;
  2. Teach youth sports organization leaders how to create an organizational culture in which Honoring the Game is the norm; and
  3. Spark and fuel a "social epidemic" of Positive Coaching that will sweep this country.
