Training Youth Leaders For Positive Coaching

Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) plans an orientation workshop for area leaders April 25 in Kahaluu, offering training to influence youths in sports as well as beyond the playing field.

The free program starts at 7 p.m. at KEY Project’s pavilion on Waihee Road and includes dinner provided by KEY and the Queen Liliuokalani Children’s Center. To RSVP for the dinner head count, call 235-7747.

The workshop is part of a series that also includes followups with coaches, parents and youths. According to PCA, the training “will help your organization develop a culture where the behaviors of coaches, parents, fans, players and mentors reflect a commitment to honoring ‘the game.'”
