Positive Coaching Alliance

The Solana Beach Soccer Club is proud to partner with Positive Coaching Alliance ("PCA") to bring a positive culture to youth sports in Solana Beach. The Club recognizes the importance sports can play in providing character developing experiences for our young athletes.

The Club is hosting a PCA workshop for coaches this Saturday (August 25th) to train them to be PCA certified coaches. We are excited about this opportunity and hope "The PCA Way" extends not only to coaches, but also to parents and our players.

We'd like to thank the City of Solana Beach for providing the Club a community grant that covers the cost to host the workshop.  Thanks!

A little background on PCA is below.

Positive Coaching Alliance

Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) develops BETTER ATHLETES, BETTER PEOPLE through resources for youth and high school sports coaches, parents, administrators and student-athletes. In addition to 1,500+ free audio-video and printable tips and tools at www.PCADevZone.org, PCA has partnered with roughly 3,500 schools and youth sports organizations nationwide to deliver live group workshops, online courses and books by PCA Founder Jim Thompson that help those involved in youth and high school sports create a positive, character-building youth sports culture.

PCA resources, which have reached more than 8.6 million youth, strive to transform high school and youth sports into a Development Zone® culture, where the goal is to develop Better Athletes, Better People and the following become the prevailing models in youth and high school sports:

  • The Double-Goal Coach®, who strives to win while also pursuing the more important goal of teaching life lessons through sports
  • The Second-Goal Parent®, who concentrates on life lessons, while letting coaches and athletes focus on competing
  • The Triple-Impact Competitor®, who strives to impact sport on three levels by improving oneself, teammates and the game as a whole.

PCA gains support from a National Advisory Board, including National Spokesperson and 11-time NBA Champion Coach Phil Jackson, and many other top coaches, athletes, organization leaders and academics who share PCA’s mission.

We highly recommend listening to a TEDx talk by the founder of PCA, Jim Thompson..... here's a link to the TEDx

Registration (Coaches and Team Parents):  If you are interested in coaching or being a team parent, please visit the Coaches tab and register.

"Birth Year" (Calendar Year) Registration:  U.S. Soccer has mandated (and Cal South has adopted) the change to a birth year / calendar year registration. We made this transition for the Fall 2017 season.  This means divisions will (on average) skew a little younger than in the past.  For more information, please visit our  'Registration' and 'Rules' pages.
