PCS Plus equips sports clubs, coaches and parents with tools and guidance to develop young people physically, socially and psychologically, providing a holistic learning environment for young people involved in sport.
PCS Plus teaches how to develop a positive learning environment in and beyond sport, and educates key people involved with a young person’s development through a series of workshops and resources.
The content focuses on five key areas, increasingly important topics for young people:
- Life skills
Why is it needed?
Sport provides great opportunities for developing young people.
The value of sport goes beyond the sports field and can impact young people across a range of attributes, including education performance, personal standards and behaviours, social skills and employment opportunities. It also has huge health benefits from reducing obesity and anxiety to increasing mental health and overall wellbeing - all of which are issues for many young people today.
By creating a postive learning environment through PCS Plus we are helping young people to stay-in and enjoy sport in order to take advantage of all its benefits.
Since 2011, 2000 workshops have been delivered across Scotland.
These have been attended by:
- over 31,000 coaches
- 23,000 parents
- 10,000 leaders
- 4,100 teachers
- over 14,000 players
along with many more who receive 'tutor training' in order to deliver PCS to others.
