If you are paying with a school check and still need to hire a coach, you may still send in the registration fee with the rest of your staff and make a note to us that you would like us to store it in our system as open credit on your school's account until you are able to hire that person.

Live Sport Demonstrations Expanded
Adding a Volleyball exclusive court and MORE!
Due to the tremendous feedback from last year's exhibit hall demonstration areas, our sponsors have generously agreed to help us add a second sport court to the hall this year. Basketball and Volleyball will now have their own court to afford more opportunities for speakers to provide live demonstrations with student-athlete participation! We plan to continue hosting dual football lecture halls and football turf demonstrations as we did in 2021, but we will now be adding a couple of track & field demonstrations on the turf as well!
All new lecture series for 2022
After meeting with our Urban ISD Advisory Council, one issue that kept coming up was the inability for some of our coaches to implement the things they learn at coaching school. We have found that often the lectures that are presented at coaching school include resources that urban and rural communities do not have access to. Examples of resources include facilities, equipment, personnel, time, and student participation. In order to address these concerns, we will be adding a series of lectures to this summer’s coaching school, and calling it our "Success Academy". We will use this series to showcase coaches from schools/programs who have been able to be successful despite limited resources. We know that having limited resources does not mean that coaches & athletes in rural and urban areas are less motivated or incapable of winning; we have seen programs time and again compete and win at high levels. Our hope is that this will offer members a chance to learn from coaches that face the same challenges.
Added Opportunities for our Girls Sport Coaches
We are continuing to build on our representation of ALL our THSCA membership.
We are thrilled to continue hosting our annual panel discussion Sunday night for Leadership in Women's Coaching, but this year we will also be adding Round Table Discussions and a Hospitality/Networking opportunity for our girls sport coaches. We will be partnering with Hudl to provide this fellowship and networking event at our THSCA Headquarters hotel the Grand Hyatt! More information to come in the May issue of Texas Coach magazine.

"Join The Team" Membership Drive
We need your help recruiting first-time THSCA members to Join The Team.
We are grateful to say that THE Texas High School Coaches Association (THSCA) has grown since it's inception in 1930 to over 24,000+ members strong! Thank you to all of our loyal members who have Joined The Team throughout the years. We want your help sharing all that THSCA offers and recruit those that have never been members before to Join The Team! As part of this Membership Drive, we will offer a complimentary 22-23 Professional membership to any first-time member coach when they join along with a paid THSCA membership renewal.
(To take advantage of this offer, visit www.thsca.com/jtt and download the "Join The Team" Registration Form. Have the new member use this form in place of a regular registration form, then mail it in along with the payment and registration forms for the rest of your staff. (Note: New members may mean first time coaches OR you may have a girls sport coach or middle school coach on your staff that has never joined THSCA. This would be a great opportunity to advocate to these peers about what THSCA does for our profession!)
Below are the requirements:
Referring coach must be a current THSCA member renewing for the 22-23 membership year.
Each school can take advantage of up to 3 complimentary "Join The Team Membership" credits for first-time THSCA members.
Fill out the Join The Team Membership Registration Form provided online (www.thsca.com/jtt) and mail it along with the THSCA Membership Registration Form for the referring member. Payment for referring member must be included for eligibility.
Fundamentals of Coaching & THSCA 101
First-time coaches and first-time THSCA members & attendees, don't miss this!
In past years we have hosted an onsite "Fundamentals of Coaching" lecture that has counted for U.I.L. CCP course credit #101. This course must be completed by ALL first time coaches in the state of Texas. We are re-formatting this lecture and moving it to the beginning of the convention. It will take place on Sunday, July 17th at Noon. The course will now be called "Fundamentals of Coaching and THSCA 101". We welcome all first time coaches but we also would like to encourage all those new to attending coaching school and those that want to learn more about the UIL and what the THSCA does for our profession to attend and learn. It will be very informative and will still count for CCP course credit for those that need it.
