Jeffrey Tocci treats patients at his dental practice in Wellesley, Massachusetts. He offers an array of dental services including implants and TMJ treatments. Jeffrey Tocci also coaches youth sports and is involved with the Positive Coaching Alliance.

The Positive Coaching Alliance seeks to transform youth sports into a positive and enriching experience for all players. It brings players, coaches, and parents together to encourage sportsmanship, growth, and development.

The Positive Coaching Alliance centers on what it calls the Double-Goal Coach. Like all coaches, Double-Goal coaches work toward the goal of winning games. Unlike many coaches, they put equal focus on the overarching goal of teaching life lessons. These coaches want to reward effort as much as success and help players grow from mistakes rather than putting them down.

Parents are encouraged to be Second-Goal Parents, who focus on raising a whole person, not just an athlete. The Alliance believes that everyone is better off if coaches focus on coaching and parents focus on parenting.
