Focuses on winning and life lessons for youth athletes

February 6, 2015 Bow, NH – The Bow Athletic Club has established a partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) to ensure a positive, character-building experience for all youth athletes in Bow Athletic Club programs. PCA (, a Stanford University-based non-profit organization, conducts workshops for coaches, organizational leaders, and parents involved in schools and sports organizations serving five-to-18-year-old athletes. PCA also provides workshops for high school athletes.

“Working with hundreds of youth sports organizations around the United States, PCA has developed practical tools and guidelines to help youth athletes, their coaches and parents get the most out of sports,” David Krause, president of Bow Athletic Club stated “We recognize the tremendous opportunity for character-building sports offers for today’s youth, so we are embracing PCA’s model, where winning is one goal and teaching life lessons is the second, more-important goal.”

“We are delighted to partner with the Bow Athletic Club,” said PCA Executive Director Jim Thompson. “Together, we’ll strive to help their youth athletes take a positive approach to pursuing victories in athletic competition and in life.”

The first workshop, Coaching for Winning and Life Lessons, is scheduled to begin March 14th from 9AM to 11AM in the Bow High School auditorium.  For information about the workshop, please contact David Krause.  One can register at–Coaching-for-Winning-and-Life-Lessons-Workshop
