IHSSA Coaches Convention Update


After numerous meetings and careful deliberation among the IHSSA Coaches Convention Committee, the Executive Committee, and the State Office staff, the IHSSA Executive Committee has made the decision that the IHSSA cannot hold the in-person Coaches Convention for 2020. We arrived at this decision in light of the increasingly concerning news about the wide-ranging effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and human susceptibility to it, limitations by the hotel on numbers we could have for a banquet, numbers of those in rooms for sessions and in the sleeping rooms,  and with the very best interests of the health of IHSSA convention attendees, presenters and staff foremost in our minds. These considerations took precedence in our deliberations over what we know is one of the most important events of the year for many of you.  Please click on this link for insight from the Coaches Convention Committee    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZhN64RXMtc&feature=youtu.be   IT IS SO MUCH FUN!!!


Therefore, the Coaches Convention Committee is continuing to work hard to create the best possible educational IHSSA experience for you, and they have developed a  6 week convention experience. Not just one or two days, but two sessions every two weeks to help develop your skills as an IHSSA coach. Specific details about virtual session sign up procedures,  activities, and ways to participate will be forthcoming  on the IHSSA website and the August issue of SWIFT over the coming weeks.  The line up of sessions was in the video presentation, will be listed on the website, and can be found in the August issue of SWIFT.
