Positive Coaching Alliance Recommends The Puck Hog

Recommended Reading

PCA occasionally recommends books for youth sports coaches, parents or student-athletes. Many feature writing by or about PCA National Advisory Board Members!


The Puck Hog by Christie Casciano, illustrated by Rose Mary Casciano Moziak

This delightful book for children ages 6-9 teaches an important lesson about teamwork. Set in Syracuse, where Casciano is a TV news anchor and mother of two youth hockey players, the book focuses on a youth hockey team's struggle with the title character, a dominant scorer who won't pass the puck. The book presents coping mechanisms for players who find themselves facing teamwork challenges and can start discussions between sports parents and their children.
