Bees News · Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) Presentation for Parents on 8/15/18 – Sponsored by the Medina Athletic Boosters

On Wednesday, August 15, we have scheduled a workshop for parents of athletes in grades 7 to 12.  The workshop, called The Second-Goal Parent: Developing Winners in Life Through Sports will be taught by Freeman Blad with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) of Cleveland.

Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) develops BETTER ATHLETES, BETTER PEOPLE through resources for youth and high school sports coaches, parents, leaders, and student-athletes.

Workshop Details:

Everyone wants to win.  That’s the first goal in sports.  But in youth and high school sports there is a second, more important goal:  teaching life lessons through sports.  In this workshop, sports parents learn why and how to focus on that second goal.

This workshop conveys the essence of the philosophy and several tips and tools parents can use to help their children get the most from youth and high school sports.

Workshop Speaker:

Freeman Blade has thirty years of coaching experience, that includes high school, college, internationally (Austria, Netherlands, Germany) and the Continental Basketball Association, presently the NBDL.  Freeman teaches players that success is “little achievements in progress”, “competition is challenging the other player (team) to be better and “life is a movable feast, enjoy everyday” Ernest Hemingway.  He has played and coached at every level and has a degree in Psychology.


When:  Wednesday, August 15 at 7pm in the Medina High School Cafeteria.

Who should attend?:  Parents of athletes in grades 7 to 12 are expected to attend the workshop.

Cost:  FREE (sponsored by the Medina Athletic Boosters)
