Lower Bucks and The Positive Coaching Alliance

Lower Bucks Lacrosse is very proud of our partnership with the Positive Coaching Alliance.  We find the PCA’s mission to be consistent with LBL’s core values, and our commitment to providing the highest quality youth sports experience in our area.

Since PCA's founding at Stanford University in 1998, more than 1,100 schools and YSOs throughout the U.S. and beyond have used their research-based techniques to:

  • Prepare youth athletes from pre-school through high school for success in life on and off the playing fields
  • Emphasize character-education and life lessons through sports
  • Become outstanding educational-athletic programs, creating a shared vision among organizational leaders, coaches, parents and athletes

In partnership with the PCA, our coaches learn the principles of the Double-Goal Coach, whose first goal is winning, and whose second, more-important goal is teaching life lessons through sports.

Players learn how to become Triple Impact Competitors, one who:

  1. Strives for personal mastery and improvement

  2. Looks for ways to make his/her team and teammates better

  3. Makes the game itself better by competing with honor

Parents come to understand what it means to be a Second-Goal Parent, focused on helping youth athletes take life lessons from sports through these techniques in communicating with their children and their coaches.

Finally, leaders of our organization constantly focus on creating an atmosphere where we hone the not only the athletic, but the life skills, of our youth athletes.

As a demonstration of our commitment to the PCA, LBL recognizes those coaches and players within our organization who most embody the PCA principles.  One boys and one girls coach is recognized, as well as one player from each of our teams.  These prestigious awards are presented at the annual LBL Palooza, a celebration of another great lacrosse season.
