3rd Annual PSD & PCA Second Goal PARENT Workshop

Archive Date:

Parents and Guardians,

There is clear research and wisdom on the role parents can play to help their kids reach their potential and get the most out of sports. For many parents, this role can be counterintuitive and good intentions sometimes end up having the opposite effect.

Poudre School District has partnered with PCA (Positive Coaching Alliance) to educate parents on how to create a “Development Zone” where our kids thrive, both as athletes and as people.

Please mark your calendars and plan for at least one parent or guardian, from each family, to attend our 3rd Annual PSD and PCA Second Goal Parent Workshop on TUESDAY, January 21st, from 6:00-7:00PM in Lesher Middle School’s Auditorium (1400 Stover Street, Fort Collins) and dinner is provided (PIZZA!).

You will not be disappointed as PCA’s most common remarks following parent workshops are, “I so wish I had heard this when my kids were younger” and “This applies to so much more than sports!”

We look forward to seeing you there!

Hank Lewis presented at the Second Goal Parent workshop last year and delivered a 1-hour message that parents in attendance said, “EVERY parent in PSD and beyond would benefit from hearing this. That was fantastic!” Hand’s PCA bio: https://www.positivecoach.org/team/lewis-hank/ *Hank's bio is a bit outdated as he was the assistant soccer coach for the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) 2 years ago and now has returned to Colorado School of Mines this year: https://minesathletics.com/sports/mens-soccer/roster/coaches/hank-lewis/66

Padres y Guardianes,

Existe una clara investigación y sabiduría sobre el papel que los padres pueden desempeñar para ayudar a sus hijos a alcanzar su potencial y aprovechar al máximo los deportes. Para muchos padres, este rol es contrario a la intuición y las buenas intenciones terminan teniendo el efecto opuesto.

El Distrito Escolar de Poudre se ha asociado con “La Alianza de Entrenamiento Positivo” (“PCA - Positive Coaching Alliance”) para educar a los padres sobre cómo crear una "Zona de desarrollo" donde prosperen los niños, tanto como atletas como personas.

Marque sus calendarios y planifique que al menos uno de los padres o tutores de cada familia asista a nuestro Taller para Padres (PCA Second Goal Parent Workshop) el martes 21 de enero de 6:00-7:00PM en el Auditorio de la Escuela Intermedia Lesher (1400 Stover Street, Fort Collins).

No se sentirán decepcionados ya que los comentarios más comunes de los padres después de los talleres de PCA son: "¡Ojalá hubiera escuchado esto cuando mis hijos eran más pequeños" y "Esto se aplica a mucho más que a deportes!".

¡Esperamos verlos allí!
