Stevens joined other coaching figures to raise money for the Positive Coaching Alliance's Boston Chapter.

Taking a break from draft workouts and watching film, Boston Celtics Coach Brad Stevens headlined a panel discussion and breakfast Friday June 13th at Fenway Park’s State Street Pavilion for the Positive Coaching Alliance.

The organization is a national nonprofit committed to providing youth and high school athletes a positive, character building experience.

Stevens was joined by Harvard Men’s Basketball Coach Tommy Amaker, former U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team Coach Tony DiCicco, and U.S. Women’s Olympic Hockey Team Coach Katey Stone, as well as Positive Coaching Alliance Founder Jim Thompson. Longtime sports writer and Boston luminary, Jackie MacMullan, moderated the discussion.

The impressive set of coaches shared their coaching experiences and the importance of positive coaching in young athletes’ lives. They also provided participants coaching tips, tricks, and advice for anyone interested in mentoring and instructing young competitors.

Individual tickets were available for $125, as well as table packages of 10 people for $5,000 and 8 people for $4,000. All proceeds benefitted the Positive Coaching Alliance’s Boston Chapter. Attendees were able to enjoy a full breakfast and ask the coaches questions regarding techniques and experiences.

Stevens will no doubt be busy in the upcoming week leading up to June 26th’s NBA Draft, held this year at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
