    PCA-LogoCoaches are the beating heart of all Skyhawks programs, and we’re excited to announce a new collaboration to take our staff training to the next level. Starting in 2019, Skyhawks Sports Academy will be partnering with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) to enhance Skyhawks staff training. Coaches and directors will complete PCA’s Double-Goal Coach® training, tools, and ongoing support to bolster Skyhawks’ existing two-day training that all programs staff currently complete. The Double-Goal Coach® program develops coaches who strive to win while also pursuing the more important goal of teaching life lessons through sports

PCA is guided by an advisory board that’s a who’s who of sports legends, including 11-time NBA Champion Coach Phil Jackson, World Cup winner and Olympic gold medalist Brandi Chastain, and Green Bay Packers President & CEO Mark Murphy, among others.
