Since 2006, Little League® has partnered with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) to provide a framework and tools for local Little League volunteers to develop a culture of positive, character-building competition. Recently, Little League extended this partnership to include relevant information for the Little League Coach and the Little League Parent, with the addition of a FREE Little League Parent quick-course. This quick-course provides a framework to be a powerful sports parent from the stands.
The following information provides you a framework. You will learn the basics building a positive, character-developing culture. What do we mean by “culture”? Most simply, “culture” is the way “WE do things HERE.” For example, in one Little League, the “way we do things here” ensures that all players shake hands with all umpires after games. In another Little League, “the way we do things here” mandates that all players cheer the opposing team in a post-game chant.
