Triple-Impact Competitor

From PCA:

A Triple-Impact Competitor® is an athlete who works to improve oneself, teammates, and the game as a whole. These individuals play a special role in Positive Coaching Alliance's mission to turn high school and youth sports into a Development ZoneTM, developing better athletes and better people.

Being a Triple-Impact Competitor is not easy. It requires commitment and sacrifice. Here are the three levels in which a Triple-Impact Competitor works:

  1. Self: A Triple-Impact Competitor is committed to improving him or her self, always looking for ways to perform better.
  2. Teammates: Help your teammates through positive reinforcement and by prioritizing team success. It's hard to look beyond oneself, but a Triple-Impact Competitor focuses on helping others.
  3. The Game: With an underlying respect for the rules, opponents, officials, teammates and self, a Triple-Impact
    Competitor strives to make the game better.

Mistake Ritual

From PCA:

Mistakes in sports are inevitable. Athletes at all levels make mistakes, from youth to professional players. What makes good athletes stand out is how they deal with those mistakes. A player who can't bounce back from mistakes will not be capable of refocusing on the most important play - the next play.

6 Stages All Recruits Must Go Through to Play in College

From PCA:

The recruiting process can leave athletes and their parents confused. Use these 6 outlined steps to keep yourself on track and aware of where you are in the recruiting process:

  1. You must be IDENTIFIED -- You need to be noticed and make it known to coaches that you want to play college sports.
  2. You must be EVALUATED -- Coaches need to assess your abilities and gather information about you to see if you are a good fit for their program.
  3. You must be ENGAGED -- This is when coaches contact you personally.
  4. You must be OFFERED -- Coaches offer you a genuine playing opportunity at the next level.
  5. You become COMMITTED -- After being offered, you make a verbal commitment to one school. You can still change your mind or wait to sign.
  6. You become SIGNED -- This is the final step. Once you sign a National Letter of Intent (NLI), you are legally bound to play for a college team.
