ASSOCIATION TO LAUNCH “MHSFCA LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT ALLIANCE”
We are excited to announce the creation of the MHSFCA Leadership Development Alliance, a program modeled after the AFCA’s “35 Under 35” program.
In this program, we will identify up and coming young (or youngish!) coaches and provide them with an intensive training program designed to prepare them to reach their goals.
The program will include sessions during our All-Star weekend and the MHSFCA Coaches’ Clinic in January. Candidates for this program are:
Current assistant coaches who aspire to be head coaches or coordinators
Current head coaches with five or fewer years of head coaching experience
Application information will be sent to all MHSFCA members soon and be available on social media.
