Bringing Positive Coaching Resources to Upper Hand Customers:
As part of Upper Hand’s mission to reinvent how sports management does business, ultimately increasing athlete participation around the world, the Indianapolis based sports software company is partnering with Positive Coaching Alliance, bringing an extensive knowledge base of coaching resources to its customers.
Upper Hand CEO Kevin MacCauley expressed the team’s excitement about partnering with PCA. “We believe that athletic participation builds character. Sports offer a unique opportunity for kids to gain team building and commitment skills, shaping who they will become on, and off the field, and PCA shares those values.”
Upper Hand offers sports businesses the software needed to effectively manage office processes, making sign-up and scheduling easy and efficient for sports management, athletes and parents. Through better business management, Upper Hand aims to allow coaches and athletes alike, more time on the field, to do what they love.
Positive Coaching Alliance is a national non-profit developing “Better Athletes, Better People” through youth and high school sports. In addition to 1,400+ free audio-video and printable tips and tools at www.PCADevZone.org, PCA has partnered with roughly 3,500 schools and youth sports organizations nationwide to deliver live group workshops, online courses and books by PCA Founder Jim Thompson that help those involved in youth and high school sports create a positive, character-building youth sports culture.
As a part of the partnership, Upper Hand is proud to offer its customers a discount for PCA Online Courses. PCA offers six online courses - all expert-developed and designed to help coaches, parents, athletes and officials ensure that winning happens both on and off the field in youth sports. Online courses are an important aspect of a PCA Partnership with youth sports organizations.
