Our Mission

To preserve and perpetuate the attributes of Larry Bruno, the Magical Coach.

Our Vision

The Larry Bruno Foundation envisions a Sports Museum at the Carnegie Library of Beaver Falls that will become the home to The Larry Bruno Hall of Achievement. Each year the HOA will welcome a new class of honorees called “The Circle of Achievement”. The honor pays tribute to achievers from the community at large, in all sports and life endeavors that best emulate the 9 attributes of the Magical Coach!

Our Purpose

To help bring the nine (9) attributes of coaching to parents, teachers and community.

Larry Bruno taught his magic through 9 key attributes of successful coaching and teaching

  1. Teaching & Planning / Organization
  2. Management – measurement, improvement, implementation and results
  3. Reverence – respect for a higher order and recognition – honor past, present and future honorees
  4. Integrity/Honesty
  5. Control & Discipline
  6. Teamwork / Working in unison and execution of excellence
  7. Communication – staying on message
  8. Leadership – compassion for what you are doing
  9. Motivation/Positive Attitude
By following the 9 attributes the Larry Bruno Foundation will provide programs and classes for the community. The foundation also plans to offer coach clinics and courses based on the lessons of The Magical Coach. The LBFoundation currently sponsors scholarships and provides assistance to community members that want, need and deserve recognition and help. A special focus will be made on brain disorders and sports injuries. The Larry Bruno Foundation and The Hall of Achievement plans to become the catalyst and agent for “Unity in the City” and change in attitudes about Beaver Falls.
