Positive Coaching Scotland

Dagmar Borrowman delivering part of PCSThe Highland Wildcats, in association with Active Schools, put six of its young people through the Positive Coaching Scotland (PCS) course last night at Charleston Community Complex.

The two hour workshop was delivered by Active Schools Coordinators Dagmar Borrowman and Amy Saints. Positive Coaching Scotland (PCS) creates a positive environment in youth sport which focuses on encouraging effort and learning, improving performance and fostering competition. This combination helps young people deal positively with mistakes. PCS offers a visionary new approach – a practical alternative to the ‘win at all costs’ mentality and a timely response to the challenges facing youth sport. It provides the tools and framework for a positive sporting experience that can also be character-building.

By involving the whole community – sport leaders, coaches, parents and teachers – PCS can encourage a cultural shift in sport in Scotland, thereby inspiring young people to reach their potential. It sets a new standard for all the key influences in a young person’s life.

Euan Crawford, Ewan Sime, Luke Crant, Haris Ryalls, Conor MacPhee and Chris Shaw were the first of  – what is hoped to be – many young people from the Highland Wildcats will be involved with with PCS over the coming year.
