THSCEF Education Initiative
In addition to the annual Coaching School and Convention, the Texas High School Coaches Association (THSCA) initiated the Professional Development Certification (PDC) Program for continued education that is designed to help coaches at all competitive and organizational levels, with an emphasis on coaches of secondary schools who are actively engaged in or directly associated with coaching sports in Texas. The THSCEF is committed to making a solid investment in these existing educational programs, and the creation of new and innovative ways for our Texas coaches to reinforce and expand their knowledge and professionalism. Additional initiatives include mentoring programs, leadership and character development seminars and access to online educational materials.

THSCEF Texas Coaches Leadership Summit
Lila Cockrell Theatre - San Antonio, TX - Friday, February 19, 2016
The Texas Coaches Leadership Summit is the signature event of the Texas High School Coaches Education Foundation. We want to unite coaches from across the state of Texas with one primary purpose:to coach beyond the game!Over the years, the state of our society has significantly changed and children are flooding into our educational system laden with social issues that could hinder or negate their chances for success. With domestic violence coming to the forefront recently, the lack of fathers and positive male role models in the lives of American youth today is quickly becoming an epidemic that we feel athletics and coaches, specifically, can play a part in changing for the better. We will be featuring a slate of excellent speakers who will be addressing core values in the hopes that our coaches statewide can carry the torch to help our student athletes become successful and responsible citizens.
