A Statement from THSCA Executive Director, Joe Martin:

     We have communicated with staff from the city of San Antonio, the convention center, our San Antonio hotels, several Texas Legislators, TEA leaders and several convention/event management teams and they all seem confident that THSCA will be allowed to have Coaching School onsite at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

 

     In the event mandates are changed, and our plan to host Coaching School in-person is no longer a possibility, we are prepared to provide a virtual Coaching School online. This virtual option will include all sport lectures, UIL rules updates, CCP certification credit courses, head coaching academy content, regional and general meeting information as well as access to our professional development series lectures. THSCA has already laid the groundwork to be able to GUARANTEE access to this convention content, EITHER IN-PERSON or VIRTUALLY, for all those that PRE-REGISTER for Coaching School 2020. As we continue to receive updates from the city of San Antonio, we will share that information, but please know we are committed to bringing you a very robust 2020 Coaching School in celebration of 90 years of THSCA & 100 years of UIL Football in Texas!   

 

     We are looking forward to July 19-21 in San Antonio serving as our avenue to help champion the return of sports to Texas, our amazing coaches and the loyal communities they serve. Thank you for your loyalty to THSCA!

San Antonio is committed to a Safer Stronger San Antonio...

UIL Statement to Superintendents

May 22, 2020

The University Interscholastic League (UIL) requirements and guidelines for its member schools to begin limited UIL summer strength and conditioning and marching band practice starting June 8, 2020 are now available on the UIL website at the links provided below. As restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic begin to be lifted across the state of Texas we are cautiously optimistic about beginning these summer activities in a thoughtful and deliberate manner.

 

It is imperative that schools follow this guidance carefully and develop a detailed plan for implementing the safety measures listed prior to beginning these activities. Texas is counting on our educational leaders to be thoughtful in resuming these activities.

The guidance includes information for considering whether to begin these activities on June 8th in each district. Please work with local officials in advance to ensure that all local guidelines are met. It is important to note that UIL cannot anticipate every unique situation and schools should stay informed and take additional actions based on common sense and good judgment that will protect the health of students and communities.

The information for summer strength and conditioning and sport specific training is at the following link:

The Texas High School Coaches Association is proud to announce the 2020 class of scholarship recipients annually awarded by the THSCA to graduating seniors who are children of active members of the association.  This year in addition to our ten $2,000 scholarships, we have added two additional scholarships in honor of two special people.  First is the Eddie Joseph Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $2,500.  Coach Joseph was Executive Director of the THSCA from 1991 until his retirement in 2002.  He passed away in March 2019.   Our second scholarship is the Fisher Woodchick Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $2005.  Fisher was the son of THSCA employee Molly Woodchick and was born with Muscular Dystrophy, a muscle wasting disease that took his life in October 2018.  The $5 added to this scholarship symbolizes Fisher’s age when he passed away.  The remaining ten recipients will each receive $2,000.
