Coach Donovan Speaks At Event

First-year Connecticut Sun coach Anne Donovan joined Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell, Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly and Boston College football coach Steve Addazio for the Positive Coaching Alliance’s “Coffee With The Coaches,” at Fenway Park’s EMC Club on Tuesday morning.

WEEI’s Mike Salk and Michael Holley moderated the discussion, asking all four coaches to address such topics as the challenges of developing team chemistry, the importance of curtailing the win-at-all-cost attitude that begins at the youth sports level, and the positive impact youth coaches can have on athletes at an early age.

The Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) is a national non-profit organization founded in the Stanford University Athletics department in 1998. The PCA works with recreational youth sports programs and schools to provide educational workshops for coaches, sports parents, and student-athletes.
