North Pocono Hosts PCA "Triple Impact Competitor" Workshop Print E-mail
Wednesday, 23 December 2015

PCA instructor, Mr. Tomm Evans addresses over 270 North Pocono Student Athletes during a Triple Impact Competitor Workshop.

Through a generous donation of the Bochccchio Sport Character Initiative (sportscharacter.org), North Pocono High School was able to host a Positive Coaching Alliance Triple Impact Competitor® workshop for all student athletes. The workshop was attended by approximately 275 students on the 23rd of December 2015. The workshop helps athletes learn to impact sport on three levels by working to improve oneself, teammates and the game as a whole. These steps align with PCA principles shared with coaches in the Double-Goal Coach® workshops and with parents in the Second-Goal Parent® work¬shops, essentially getting all three groups – coaches, parents and athletes – onto the same page. The interactive workshop uses video clips and quotes from famous and established athletes, coaches and sport psychologists to enhance the message that creating better athletes leads to creating better people, a cornerstone of the PCA movement. Student-athletes leave the workshop equipped with the information and inspiration necessary to lead in the school’s hallways and use their influence to set examples throughout the community that generate pride and support for the school’s athletics program. Hopefully, the workshop will lead to the establishment of an athletic leadership council forming in the new year.

Men of Troy Win 2nd Tournament Print E-mail
Thursday, 02 October 2014

The Men of Troy won its 2nd tournament of the season while besting the 7 team Wallenpaupack JV Tournament on Saturday, September 27, 2014. The Men of Troy finished with a record of 4 wins, 1 loss, and 1 tie on the day earning them 13 points. While an undefeated Lakeland team finished in 2nd place with a record of 3 wins and 3 ties earning them 12 points on the day's competition.

Matt Zero won the tournament's Golden Boot Award for scoring 3 goals on the day. Two of them in the final match against West Scranton. He was also the Men of Troy representative for the All-Tournament team.

Twenty-two MOT players participated on the day and all got plentiful playing time. Coach DeRenzis stated, "It was an overall team effort that enabled us to win this tournament championship. Each of our 3 goalkeepers played two games and combined only allowed 1 goal over 6 matches. It was a team win in every sense of the word!"

Hopefully the Men of Troy will build steam from this tournament championship that will catapult them into the 2nd half of the season.

The Men of Troy will next play on the hill this Tuesday against Division 1 leader Valley View. Kickoff is slated for 4:15! Please come out and support our NP Men of Troy!
