Positive Coaching Alliance

We are committed to a culture of positive coaching and will provide an environment where our players thrive physically and emotionally while learning to play soccer. Our program is a place where:

  • Players Play
  • Coaches Coach
  • Parents Cheer
  • Referees are Human

This philosophy has been adopted and promoted by the Positive Coaching Alliance, a national non-profit youth sports organization founded in 1998 within the Stanford University Athletic department. We expect all coaches in Oakland Soccer Club to coach to these principles, and promote them enthusiastically throughout our community, including all players, parents and fans, as well as coaches.
