Elgin Nelson has been named a Phoenix finalist for the Positive Coaching Alliance’s Triple-Impact Competitor Scholarship program. Scolarships ranging from $1000-$2000 are awarded to high school student-athletes, based on essays explaining how they meet the PCA standard of a “Triple-Impact Competitor.” Those three elements are Personal mastery: Making oneself better; Leadership: Making one’s teammates better, and Honoring the Game: Making the game better.

With the goal of producing better athletes and better people, Phoenix Union has teamed with Positive Coaching Alliance, a national non-profit. The year-long partnership, funded by a grant from the NFL in conjunction with the Super Bowl, provides access to PCA’s training for coaches, sports parents, student-athletes and administrators with live group workshops, online courses, books and additional online resources, free audio-video tips and tools.
