Individual Player Meetings

All coaches are required to have Individual Player Meetings with each player twice in the season. The goal of these meetings is to discuss with each player what their current strengths are, were they need to improve and specific, attainable coach/player goals to aim to achieve. 

The first Individual Player Meeting is expected to take place before your first tournament. We encourage parents to review the meeting form with their player after their meeting.

Parents' Reaction to Failure Translates to their Children

"Should we wallow in ice cream first or should we get right to work?"

With tournaments just around the corner, this message is a great reminder for parents on how to help your daughter deal with defeat or failure.

PCA National Advisory Board Member Carol Dweck is the Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology at Stanford University and author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success. She graduated from Barnard College in 1967 and earned a Ph.D. from Yale University in 1972. She taught at Columbia University, Harvard University, and the University of Illinois before joining the Stanford faculty in 2004.

In this clip, Dweck explains that the way adults react to failures, whether their own or their children, will transmit to their child's mindset about how they should handle failure. She states that parents need to address it, and not ignore by "treating it as a natural part of the process, and together, learning from it."
