Nominations are now being accepted for Double Goal Coach
Do you know a Double-Goal Coach®, whose first goal is winning, and whose second, more-important goal is teaching life lessons through sports? If so, nominate them today!
Nominate a coach for the Positive Coaching Alliance Double-Goal Coach Awards, presented by Liberty Mutual before the deadline of December 31st, 2010.
The Double-Goal Coach model is intended to replace the “win-at-all-cost”model prevalent in youth sports today. A Double-Goal Coach:
- 1. Redefines “Winner,”
- 2. Honors the Game and
- 3. Fills Players’ Emotional Tanks.
Double-Goal Coaches want to win (goal #1) but have a second, more important goal – to help players develop positive character traits that will help them be successful in life (goal #"2").
The Liberty Mutual Responsible SportsTM program supports volunteer youth sports coaches and parents who help our children succeed both on and off the field. We offer many youth sports resources including $2,500 community grants, instructional videos, weekly tips, peer and expert advice, and coursework for those interested in improving the youth sports experience for all involved.
