Some important notifications and reminders regarding this year’s Convention.

Professional Development for Career Advancement Workshop -  On Sunday morning, December 4, we will host a half-day pre-convention workshop titled Professional Development for Career Advancement Workshop. This program will be offered complementary to assistant coaches attending the convention as well as Division II, III, NAIA, and NJCAA Head Coaches. We will offer a deep dive to prepare coaches for their next job. Items of discussion will include developing and refining your coaching philosophy as well as when a new coaching opportunity arises, how to nail the interview process, among several other topics. Attendees will need to arrive by Saturday night, December 3 to participate and we are hopeful for a large turnout.

WGCA Mentorship Roundtable – Similar to past years, this year’s Convention kicks off on Sunday afternoon, December 4 at 2:30 pm local time. Please make sure to schedule your travel to be there on time. This interactive event allows you to get up close and personal with coaching veterans from across the country and will provide a great opportunity to discuss career and professional topics with some of the best and most experienced coaches in the business. Each topic will offer an opportunity for meaningful discussions, networking and the sharing of ideas across our sport.
