F.A.S.T. CLINICS (Tackling 2.0 Certification ONLY)

The THSCEF will be offering six F.A.S.T. — (Football, Association, Society and Tackling) Clinics throughout the state of Texas. These three hour clinics will include a Football lecture, a THSCA Association update, a leadership/character development session and the tackling training seminar by ATAVUS for the new Tackling 2.0 Certification. (This is not a tackle training for new football coaches that have never been Texas Tackle Certified before. We will offer training for first time coaches AND Tackling 2.0 at Coaching School in July.)

Registration will be available on our THSCA Members Portal for these clinics beginning November 1, 2020 at a cost of $25 per person. Seating at each location will be limited, so when a clinic is full it will be removed from the purchasing page and marked sold out! Once you have registered, your $25 registration fee is NON-Refundable and NON-Transferable. (You must PRE-REGISTER, we will not have onsite registration for these events.)


You can only register for these F.A.S.T. Clinics online through the members portal on the THSCA website with a credit card. We will not accept cash/check/money-order payment for these events. To register, please click here and log-in to the members portal and browse events on the top menu. If you have never been a member you will need to create a portal account for yourself before you can proceed with registration for the clinic. 

Coaches who attend will be given a packet upon check-in that will include a certificate of participation (noting 2 hours of TEA Continuing Education credit.), and instructions on how to complete the exam online through the ATAVUS website and print proof of Tackle Certification. Unlike in years past you will not complete the exam onsite as a written test, you will be given access to complete the exam online at no additional charge once you have attended the tackling live seminar at the F.A.S.T. Clinic.
