You are attending a youth sports event and you overhear other parents in the stands talking about a new online youth coach’s education program. You are intrigued by this verification program and find out that it offers four components which include a first-aid and concussion training course, Positive Coaching Alliance “Double Goal” coaches’ character education course and a nationwide background check.
