The NCJLA’s preference is that a coach completes a PCA workshop since the interaction with the trainer and other coaches is likely to be a more positive experience; however, completing the online PCA coach’s course is acceptable. Note that the cost of PCA workshops is covered by the NCJLA. Any cost for the online class must be paid by the individual coach or their club.
Each coach should have their PCA card with them at every NCJLA game. A photocopy that can be kept with their team binder or with the score keeping equipment is acceptable.
