Welcome to “Second-Goal” Parenting

Welcome to “Second-Goal” ParentingTM

Just as Little League Double-Goal® Coaches have two goals -- winning, and more importantly, teaching life lessons through baseball and softball -- Little League and Positive Coaching Alliance urge you to be a “Second-Goal” Parent, focused on the “second goal” of helping children take life lessons from baseball and softball.

The Little League/Positive Coaching Alliance partnership helps players learn how to win on and off the field, using a fun, competitive environment to teach lessons in teamwork, discipline, compassion and handling adversity. Players can then apply those lessons in school, jobs and their family lives.

The remaining pages in this section of Little League’s website detail three methods that “Second-Goal” Parents can use to help their children take life lessons from baseball and softball:

• Establishing a Parent-Coach Partnership
• Empowering Conversations With Your Children
• Guidelines for “Honoring the Game”
