What is the THSCA Head Coaching Academy?

This year we will host the 5th annual workshop for the THSCA Head Coaching Academy, built on our passion to help train the next generation of head coaches. This seminar is designed for head coaches who want to brand their program and hone their administrative skills, as well as younger coaches seeking the skills and mentoring it takes to become a head coach in the future. 

One of the most important responsibilities as a coach is to help young athletes confront and comprehend the negative culture that challenges them in this day and time. Head coaches are responsible for providing their coaching staff with the moral guidance, proper encouragement and leadership to get that task accomplished. This event is open to all Coaching School attendees at no additional charge. Seating will be limited, so please arrive promptly. Again, we are happy to welcome both current head coaches and aspiring head coaches to attend!

Mansfield ISD Athletic Director & Superintendent

“What your Superintendent needs from you as the Athletic Director”
Superintendents live in a political world, and athletics play a critical role in district politics. It is your job as the Athletic Director to make your Superintendent look good. If your Superintendent looks good, then they get to keep their job. If you assist them in keeping their job, then you get to keep your job as well. During this session, you will learn how to feed information to your Superintendent that will assist them with the local political landscape, thus enhancing their ability to look good as the Superintendent.



Head Coach, McKinney HS

“Establishing & Building a Program Philosophy”
No matter what stage of your career you’re in, who YOU are matters! It matters most to the kids and coaches that you come in contact with. Who you are also has an impact on the profession as a whole, make sure your impact is positive! Coach Shavers will introduce you to who he is and give his unique perspective on the profession as a whole from the eyes of the “middle child”.


Superintendent, McKinney ISD

“A Superintendent’s View: From 6-Man to 6A”
What qualities does a superintendent look for in a head coach? Why winning isn’t everything or even the most important quality for a head coach.


Athletic Director, Denton ISD

“Head Coaching Lessons from My Dad: You can win with ‘em or get beat by ‘em!”
Being a head football coach is hard, even harder in the Great Country of Texas. I was lucky to grow up the son of a high school football coach and have my Dad show me the way in our profession. Today, I will attempt to pass on a few of the many lessons and words of wisdom he instilled in me.


Athletic Director/Head Coach, Shallowater HS

“Earn Your Wings and Fly….What you wish you had known as a PUP!”
The lecture will focus on what the young coach needs to know and expect as they begin their coaching career. The message will include the do’s and don’ts of being a quality assistant. I will spend time discussing what all “PUPS” need to understand and expect as the new kid on the block, and all the qualities that are desired by the head coach. The lecture will conclude with advice on how to land that first head coaching gig and how being a great assistant is the key to it all!
