Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) is a national sports mentoring and coaching advisory organization whose goal is to “be a catalyst for a positive youth sports culture in all communities across the U.S.“ PCA works with players, coaches, families, and organizations (large and small) to develop positive youth sports development and good practices on and off the field. I attended an informational session a few seasons back hosted by PCA Certified Trainer Chris Fay, who presented an excellent slideshow of the Positive Coaching Alliance philosophy of youth development in sports. Chris and I have stayed in contact over the years and he recently sent me an email regarding an upcoming PCA information session. Here is the information from that email:

The RIBBE is The Rhode Island Baseball Experience. It is promoting the game of baseball here in the great state of Rhode Island for the entire baseball world to see. The RIBBE is positive stories, photos, videos, and responsible social media posts. The RIBBE is an information resource for families looking for an AAU team or a summer camp or a great place to buy a first baseman’s mitt. The RIBBE is a network of coaches, tournament directors, parents, leagues, and baseball junkies whose passion of the game of baseball is unquestioned. I believe that providing expert analysis, information and directions to ballfields, and coaching advice from some of the top RI baseball minds will help promote the game of baseball here in RI to a whole new level.
