Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) is a national non-profit, with a local chapter in Chicago, committed to providing youth and high school athletes a positive youth sports experience. PCA’s 50 finalists for the 2012 Double-Goal Coach Awards include local coaches Mike Burzawa, head football coach, Evanston Township High School; Raymond Asher, head baseball coach, Ida Crown Jewish Academy High School, Skokie Youth Baseball; Julie Wiejak, head volleyball coach, Andrean High School and North & South Shore Assault Volleyball Club.

“With so many worthy coaches across the country, it’s great to recognize three outstanding coaches right here in the Chicago area,” said Jason Sacks, executive director of PCA’s Chicago Chapter. “All of these individuals have proven not only to be great coaches in their respective sport, but also great role models and mentors for their student-athletes.”
