What's new and what to know for 2021 Coaching School ?
One Registration Fee, Two Ways to Learn
All Registered Attendees will have Access to In-Person and Virtual Content
After our 2020 Virtual Coaching School last summer it was brought to our attention that many of our coaches enjoyed have extended access time to complete their UIL CCP courses, watch LIVE lectures and access replays of even more sport lectures on-demand. With that in mind we plan to grant virtual access to PRE-REGISTERED attendees as early as one week BEFORE coaching school for you to start completing UIL CCP training. At the convention we plan to record sport lecture content with the intent to allow our registered coaches the ENTIRE month of August to continue learning with on-demand replay access.

Tackle Training by ATAVUS
Opportunities Available for 1.0 Certification and 2.0 Re-Certification
You must sign up in advance to reserve your seat in a Tackle Training session onsite at Coaching School. If you have never been Tackle Certified before and this is your first time coaching football you will need to complete the 1.0 certification (this certification is good for two years). If you were previously tackle certified you will be completing the 2.0 re-certification. Onsite tackle training is included in the registration fee for coaching school attendees. If you are unable to attend in person, you will need to complete tackle certification online through the Atavus website ( for a $35 fee. Seating will be limited so please make sure you reserve your seat in advance.
Unlike in past certification years, you will not complete a written exam. Those who attend the seminar in person will be given instructions for accessing the exam online (at no additional charge) after the seminar has completed.
New Transfer Policy for Registration
Deadline to Request Transfers or Refunds will be July 1, 2021
We plan to offer early virtual access to complete UIL CCP content before Coaching School this year. This means that we will no longer be able to process transfers onsite at the convention. If you know you will need to remove a payent from a coach but have not yet hired a replacemnt, please let us know by July 1st, so we will have time to revoke the registration fee from the original attendee and create a credit for your school to use when you arrive onsite at the convention to apply to the new hire.
