Positive 60 Experience
An Experience Beyond the Game
To achieve our mission of helping kids succeed in life through sports, Positive 60 provides a youth sports experience unlike any other teaching the importance of good sportsmanship on the field and in life. We believe the value we provide must go far beyond the sport itself. It must be about more than the rules of the game. About more than who plays what position. About more than the score.
We focus on how the game is played, how much fun we can make it for the kids, and how easy we can make it for the parents.
For Kids: We provide a fun, safe experience, in which kids can learn basic athletic skills, learn good sportsmanship, and increase their self-esteem.
For Parents: We provide a convenient, well organized program that doesn’t consume their family’s life.
At the end of the day, it's not the sport that makes the difference. It's the experience you and your child have at the game that makes a lasting impact. That's why we operate our leagues very differently.
More specifically, our programs are built around a 5-point customer experience we call The Positive 60 Experience.
The Positive 60Experience is defined as:
1. Superior Organization & Communication
We believe in creating a youth sports experience that’s positive and stress-free for the whole family.
Professional management of all programs – someone is always in-charge
Proactive communication - you always know when and where you need to be
24/7 online access to latest schedules, standings, and statistics
Flexibility to accommodate “buddy” requests on teams
We believe in making participation in an Positive 60 program easily fit into a family’s busy schedule.

3. A Safe, Supportive Environment
We believe your child’s safety is paramount. As such, Positive 60 is not only a leader in raising national awareness about safety in youth sports and specifically, concussion safety, we strive to ensure that "safe play" is enforced.

4. Instruction in Skills & Good Sportsmanship
