During the last 12 years, PCA has impacted more than 4 million youth through partnerships with more than 1,700 youth sports organizations, leagues, schools and cities nationwide. PCA has presented over 9,000 workshops, training more than 430,000 coaches, parents, organization leaders and athletes.

PCA's Triple-Impact Competitor™ program develops youth who are committed to improving themselves, their teammates and their sport as a whole.
