  • Positive Coaching - What is Positive Coaching Scotland?



    Positive Coaching Scotland (PCS) is based on a highly successful US model which was developed at Stanford University in 1998 to combat escalating health and social problems. Since then, it has been used by over 1,100 sports organisations, has influenced millions of young people.


    PCS creates a positive environment in youth football which focuses on encouraging effort and learning, improving performance and fostering competition. This combination helps young players deal positively with mistakes. PCS offers a new approach – an alternative to the ‘win at all costs’ mentality and a timely response to the challenges facing football.


    The players are the most important part of our game, every player enjoys playing and winning games of football, however positive players play the game fairly, with respect and always with 2 goals in mind:


    • Striving to Win
    • Learning / Developing


    Top level professional football is about winning, youth football is about learning and developing. It is vitally important that positive players remember this and play the game in a positive manner.


    It is not easy to be a positive player, nor is it a simple process, however, with commitment you will find that it can provide a more meaningful involvement with football, and one that will have a positive impact on you for the rest of your life.
