Greater Providence YMCA To Host Free Positive Coaching Alliance Workshop in March

On Thursday, March 28th, the Greater Providence YMCA will be the host site for a free Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) workshop entitled “Winning and Life Lessons.” Chris Fay is the PCA New England Chapter Training and Partnership Manager. Chris and I worked with the leaders at the YMCA to secure the Kent County YMCA for this special coaching workshop. According to Chris, “This free coaching workshop is a result of a grant from the Boston Red Sox Foundation in partnership with Little League® International.” The framework of the workshop is listed here below:

According to Chris, ” Positive Coaching Alliance is a national non-profit that was founded on the campus of Stanford University, and we currently deliver over 3,500 workshops per year for youth and high school athletic organizations nationwide.  The workshop is approximately 90-minutes in length.” Positive Coaching Alliance has a comprehensive website with thousands of articles, videos, and testimonials to help build “Better Athletes, Better People.” Whether you are new to youth sports like Little League® or you are a seasoned coach/manager who has decades of experience, PCA has just what you are looking for. Their national advisory board reads like a Who’s Who of Sports Leaders. Dusty Baker, Jennifer Azzi, Mike Brey, Brandi Chastain, and the list goes on and on.

And visit their website to learn more about PCA and how they help make Better Athletes, Better People®.

Event is Thursday, March 28th at 7pm on the campus of Kent County YMCA, Warwick, RI.

Special thanks to the staff at the Greater Providence YMCA for working with PCA on this workshop. And thank you to the Red Sox Foundation for this incredible grant to allow this workshop to be attended free of charge.

The RIBBE is The Rhode Island Baseball Experience. It is promoting the game of baseball here in the great state of Rhode Island for the entire baseball world to see. The RIBBE is positive stories, photos, videos, and responsible social media posts. The RIBBE is an information resource for families looking for an AAU team or a summer camp or a great place to buy a first baseman’s mitt. The RIBBE is a network of coaches, tournament directors, parents, leagues, and baseball junkies whose passion of the game of baseball is unquestioned. I believe that providing expert analysis, information and directions to ballfields, and coaching advice from some of the top RI baseball minds will help promote the game of baseball here in RI to a whole new level.
