As the fall athletic season gets underway, The Storm King School is pleased to announce its new partnership with the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA). PCA is a national non-profit organization dedicated to developing “Better Athletes, Better People” by working with schools and other organizations to provide high school athletes with a positive, character-building sports experience.
According to Headmaster Jonathan Lamb, the relationship complements the core values of Storm King and its athletic program. “First and foremost, athletics at Storm King is about sportsmanship, leadership, team-building, and character development. Our student-athletes not only compete at a high level, but they also personify the core values of our school; truth, respect, responsibility,” explains Mr. Lamb.
Storm King’s Athletic Director Joseph Graziosi echoes Mr. Lamb’s sentiments as he and his coaches prepare their teams for the fall athletic season: “We look forward to working with PCA to create the best possible experience for our student-athletes. We hope to benefit from their extensive resources in areas such as sports psychology and education, as well as get practical advice from coaches at the college and professional levels. Our goal is always to improve our students’ athletic performance while also ensuring they learn important life lessons that will help them in their future lives.”
