Davidsonville Athletic Association partners with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA)


Focuses on winning and life lessons for youth athletes

DAA partners with the nationally known, Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA), to support our coaches, players, and parents. 


DAA offers PCA Workshops free of charge to our coaches and parents to provide them with the tools to ensure that we continue to offer our youth athletes a positive, character-building sport's experience.

The opportunity to attend these free workshops given by excellent coaches and athletes is just another way that DAA stands apart from other athletic organizations.


We expect ALL head coaches of any sport to become PCA Certified, which entails attending two PCA Workshops.  We also encourage all assistant coaches to attend two workshops.

Davidsonville Athletic Association has established a partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) to ensure a positive, character-building experience for all youth athletes in DAA programs. PCA (www.PositiveCoach.org), a Stanford University-based non-profit organization, conducts workshops for coaches, organizational leaders, and parents involved in schools and sports organizations serving five-to-18-year-old athletes. PCA also provides workshops for high school athletes.


“Working with hundreds of youth sports organizations around the United States, PCA has developed practical tools and guidelines to create a positive arena for athletes, coaches, and parents where sports and life skills meet,” said Julie Barkat, DAA Board member and PCA Liaison. “We recognize the tremendous opportunity for character-building sports offers for today’s youth so we are embracing PCA’s Double-Goal Coach® model, where winning is one goal and teaching life lessons is the second, more-important goal.”


“We are delighted to partner with DAA,” said PCA Executive Director Jim Thompson. “Together, we’ll strive to help their youth athletes take a positive approach to pursuing victories in athletic competition and in life.”
