Coaches' Leadership Conference
The MPSSAA has sponsored and conducted a Coaches' Leadership Conference each of the past two years for the coaching staffs of our member public high schools. The Coaches' Leadership Conference is designed to develop coaches’ leadership skills that enhance the values of education-based athletics, promote positive relationships with parents and student-athletes, maintain appropriate communication with officials, sportsmanship, inclusion, time management, and developing effective media relations and social media policies/guidelines. The positive values of education-based athletics have been well documented through research as benefits of participation in interscholastic athletics. The structure of the conference provides coach interaction through dynamic guest speakers, sport-specific sessions/clinics led by college coaches, and interactive seminar workshops. Coaches will learn an array of techniques to enhance their leadership and teaching skills for their student-athletes.
The 2017-18 Coaches' Conference will not be held. We hope to have it return in the 2018-19 school year. Information will be posted here as soon as it becomes available next school year.
