Positive Coaching Alliance

The Cleveland Monsters have established a new partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA), a national non-profit movement that inspires and empowers youth and high school sports organizations to leverage the unique opportunity sports presents to build character in our youth.

 

The partnership provides the Cleveland Monsters and our youth hockey program partners with access to PCA’s research-based trainings, tools and resources for coaches, sports parents, student-athletes and administrators. Those resources come in the form of live interactive workshops, online courses, books by PCA Founder Jim Thompson and additional online resources.
