School of Sport Sciences, Positive Coaching Alliance set to host fall workshop

The WVU School of Sport Sciences, as part of its continued relationship with the Positive Coaching Alliance, will host a virtual workshop on Wednesday, Nov. 8, from 7-8:30 p.m., entitled "Double-Goal Coach: Coaching for Winning and Life Lessons."

The workshop is available to both campus and community members involved with coaching sports at the youth level. Those interested can RSVP here.

As part of the 90-minute workshop presented by PCA, participants will hear from Dan Stratford, a WVU alumnus and head coach of the nationally ranked Mountaineer men's soccer team

The interactive workshop is focused on promoting and teaching the concept of a double-goal coach: someone who strives to win and works to prepare his/her team to play at its highest level, and, at the same time, teaches the life lessons of teamwork, dedication and resilience. The content is also comprised of advice from other professional coaches, research-based insights in coaching, education and sports psychology, and hands-on training in field-tested coaching techniques.

The workshop continues the partnership between WVU's School of Sport Sciences and PCA, which started last spring with a workshop for coaches in the WesMon Baseball League

The cooperative partnership was made possible through the generosity of donors to the  Keith Bailey Positive Coach/Sport Parenting Initiative that was established in WVU’s School of Sport Sciences housed in the College of Applied Human Sciences. The fund was created in memory of Keith Bailey, a beloved local youth sports coach and Dean of WVU Online and Assistant Provost for Teaching and Learning who passed away in December 2020 after battling leukemia.
