U.S. WORLD CUP WINNER AND OLYMPIC SOCCER PLAYER JULIE FOUDY TO SPEAK AT S.B. ATHLETIC ROUND TABLE’S FALL CLASSIC
Santa Barbara, CA – – Julie Foudy, former Olympian, U.S. national soccer team member, ESPN analyst, and Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) advisory board member will be the guest speaker at this year’s Fall Classic, hosted by the Santa Barbara Athletic Roundtable (SBART).
“We’re so thrilled to have a woman’s of Julie’s caliber speak to our supporters and student athletes. To have such an accomplished athlete who also cares deeply about shaping the culture of youth sports speak in Santa Barbara is very exciting,” says Cara Gamberdella (SBART President).
Not only will Foudy talk about her road to the highest level of competitive sports, she’ll talk about her role with the PCA. Gamberdella adds, “SBART believes in what the PCA is all about – – helping kids, coaches, and parents get the most out of all that youth sports has to offer.”
Far too often, the “win at all costs” mentality creeps into youth sports, taking the fun out of the experience and turning off kids and parents to the positive aspects of participation in sports. SBART and PCA teamed-up to help shape youth sports culture for the next generation. Since the inception of this partnership, SBART has hosted 16 local workshops for more than 400 parents, coaches, youth sports board members, and coaches during the past 12 months.
