PCA Workshop for All Parents


In our continuing efforts to maintain a positive, supportive culture within our club, we are partnering with the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) again this year. Upcoming workshops for parents have been scheduled, and we strongly encourage one parent from every household to attend. This will help foster respect on the sidelines for officials, opponents, players and coaches. Coaches will also be completing the PCA Double-Goal training this month.

Please pick from one of the following 4 sessions. We look forward to seeing you there!

For Parents: 

  •  Thurs, August 27, 7:00 – 8:00 pm @ Harvest Park multi-purpose room
  •  Thurs, August 27, 8:00 – 9:00 pm @ Harvest Park 
  •  Weds, Sept 2, 7:00 – 8:00 pm @ Pleasanton Middle School, multi-purpose
  •  Weds, Sept 2, 8:00 – 9:00 @ Pleasanton Middle School 

Thanks in advance for your time!

PCA Workshop for All Rage Coaches

pca In our continuing efforts to maintain a positive, development oriented culture for our recreational and competitive players, we are again partnering with the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) this year. As part of this effort, we have scheduled workshops for both coaches and parents, with an emphasis on getting new coaches and one parent from every household through a PCA workshop.

As coaches, we need your attendance, as well as assistance to get the word out to parents involved in your team(s). An email blast will also be going out directly.

For Coaches: 

Weds August 26, 7:00 to 9:00 pm @ Pleasanton Middle School multi-purpose room

* All new coaches are required to attend; and the workshop is recommended for all Rec and Comp coaches as a valuable refresher. If you are out of town, please contact me to make other arrangements for attendance.

Thanks for committing your time and energy as a coach for Rage. And remember to “honor the game” as you embark on a new season.
