As a community service, Port Washington Youth Activities (PYA) is pleased to announce a free seminar by noted author, speaker, and WFAN Sports Radio personality Rick Wolff. The seminar will be held on Thursday, March 22 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the John Philip Sousa Elementary School Auditorium.

Seminar topics will include:

  • How to be a coach on your child’s team
  • How to “coach” a child after the game
  • Hot to best serve the Port Washington community

PYA recommends that all parents with children in the program, coaches, and assistant coaches attend this free event.

Wolff played baseball at Harvard and was drafted after his junior year by the Detroit Tigers, and played in their minor league system. After he retired from playing, Rick served as the head baseball coach at Mercy College. In the early 1990s, he was with the Cleveland Indians as their sports psychology coach, specializing in the mental approach to the game of baseball. He has degrees in psychology, both from Harvard and Long Island University.  Rick is the son of the late New York sportscaster, Bob Wolff.

PYA is a nonprofit, Better Business Bureau Approved, charitable organization whose purpose is to promote the exemplary development of local youth through the participation in sport. PYA teaches teamwork and individual responsibility in an atmosphere of respect and sportsmanship. While PYA places emphasis on the development of sports skills, its primary mission is to develop character and an understanding of how participation in sporting events can prepare one for success in all endeavors.
