Daniels Fund Backs Campaign Featuring KOA's Dave Logan >>
You know those special coaches who teach their players, much more than just how to cross a soccer ball, or hit behind the runner? Those coaches that make you smile when you think of them 20 years later because they taught you how to handle disappointment or develop a work ethic, or—hold your breath for this one—respect an official who just made a questionable call?
Well, now those types of coaches are being honored with PCA-Colorado's Double-Goal Coach® Awards Presented by Daniels Fund. The foundation responsible for bringing a PCA Chapter to Colorado is supporting the Double-Goal Coach campaign on KOA Radio with a series of spots and interviews featuring Dave Logan and local youth and high school sports coaches who strive to win while pursuing the even more important goal of seizing the endless opportunities sports provide to teach valuable life lessons.
Colorado icon and multiple-state-champion high school coach Dave Logan will serve as spokesperson for the initiative, and promotional ads and PCA educational messages will air on KOA and other Clear Channel outlets between September 2013 and May 2014. Award-winning coaches will receive $250 and an additional $750 will go to a youth sports organization or high school of the coach’s choosing to bring PCA workshops to their coaches, parents or athletes.
“Our founder, Bill Daniels, believed that participation in sports and access to quality coaches help to develop discipline, confidence teamwork, and sportsmanship,” explained Linda Childears, president and CEO of the Daniels Fund. “We are pleased to provide support to the Positive Coaching Alliance that will allow them to recognize outstanding coaches in our community and expand access to the Double-Goal Coach training program.”
Winning coaches will be interviewed on-air on The Dave Logan Show. For more information on what it takes to be a Double-Goal Coach, click here >>.
