DYBA (Deerfield Youth Baseball and Softball Association) is very pleased to announce that Dan Mayer has been selected as one of the 50 national finalists for the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) Double-Goal Coach Award.
Since its 1998, Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) has reached youth and high school sport leaders, coaches, athletes, parents and officials through live workshops, online courses, published books and articles, and a series of alliances with nationally-recognized coaches, athletes, academicians, businesses and national youth sports organizations.
Coach Mayer is most deserving of this nomination. He has a great deal of respect for the game of baseball and for the players he coaches each season. Dan is more than a baseball coach; he is a mentor who looks to teach his players life lessons they will take with them long after their days on the field have ended”, stated Adam Gold Co-Director of Travel Baseball (DYBA).
The 50 finalists embody the Double-Goal Coach model of striving to win, while also pursuing the more important goal of teaching life lessons through sports to develop "Better Athletes, Better People."
PCA will announce the 20 award winners on March 19 and honor them with a trophy, $250 and inclusion in their website, Momentum e-newsletter and media campaigns.
