2017 Texas Coaches Leadership Summit #THSCA17by THSCA
The Annual Texas Coaches Leadership Summit is the signature event of the Texas High School Coaches Education Foundation.
We want to unite coaches from across the state of Texas with one primary purpose: to coach beyond the game! Over the years, the state of our society has significantly changed and children are flooding into our educational system laden with social issues that could hinder or negate their chances for success. With domestic violence coming to the forefront recently, the lack of fathers and positive male role models in the lives of American youth today is quickly becoming an epidemic that we feel athletics and coaches, specifically, can play a part in changing for the better.
We are excited to feature a slate of excellent speakers who addressed core values in the hopes that our coaches statewide can carry the torch to help our student athletes become successful and responsible citizens.
If you missed it, we've got good news for you! You can get all the presentations right here.
