Positive Coaching

Tribe lacrosse and US Lacrosse are strong supporters of the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA), a non-profit organization that partners with parents, sports leagues, and schools to enable sports as a tool for teaching life lessons. We believe that sports can make children better people by adhering to a few basic principles. These include valuing effort over results, using positive reinforcement, and helping children learn from mistakes. Coaches play a large role in influencing young athletes and have a responsibility to help children build character. 

Tribe coaches are trained in using PCA tools, and we do our best to create a positive and fun atmosphere. We also request that parents to uphold the PCA goals by supporting athletes with positive encouragement, respecting the officials, and supporting the coaches. Your coach may request that you sign a Parent Code of Conduct to reinforce these principles.
