Why Play for Bear Creek Junior Sports?

 

Partners with the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA).  This doesn't mean that we don't teach the kids the value of winning and/or losing; we play every game to win.  We always do this within and while teaching our players the boundaries of respecting the game by honoring the Rules, Opponents, Officials, Team-mates, and Self.  Winning is important!  We do go the extra step (Goal #1) to teach them life lessons through sport.  (Click here to learn about PCA)   Every parent who has a child registered in Bear Creek Junior Sports will have the opportunity to learn how to make their son or daughters participation in youth sports more enjoyable.  You will have the opportunity to purchase a copy of the Positive Sports Parenting by Jim Thompson, which provides 60 concise pages of insightful and sensible advice on how parents can help children get the most from sports.  A fantastic resource for parents, coaches, and players is available at the Positive Coaching Alliance Development Zone (Click Here)

 

 

 Safety:  Bear Creek Junior Sports is committed to the safety of your child and our parents and family members.  All of our coaches and assistants are concussion certified and have completed child safe background checks. 

 

Coaching:  Each of our coaches and assistant coaches strives to ensure that your child has fun playing sports for Bear Creek Junior Sports.  Each completes the PCA Double Goal coach training.

 

Fun is Essential: Having fun while being safe is without question the most important component of any sport experience at any age or level. Whether you are a parent of a young child or a veteran coach, it is absolutely critical that your kids enjoy themselves when they play.

The reasons for this are somewhat obvious but important to reinforce. When kids have fun, they are more likely to continue to play. Fostering a love of exercise and athletic involvement has life-long benefits, including improved physical and mental health as well as academic performance. When kids don't have fun, they are less likely to play the next season and may drop out of sports altogether.

Researchers have found that anywhere from 30-70% of kids drop out of sports by the time they are 13 years old, and the number one reason why they quit is that they aren't having any fun.  While some programs/clubs will tell you how many kids are playing on top elite teams, we'll show pictures of kids smiling!  We like to say, "We are winning regardless of what the scoreboard reads!"  

 

Non-Profit:  Many youth organizations are "for profit", while Bear Creek Junior Sports Association (BCJSA) is 100% volunteer run, non-profit organizations.  This is important as everyone in our program is here for the kids and we are only only interested in your child's best interests, it is not just a job to us.
