The nation’s largest high school coaches association is taking its annual Coaching School virtual because of the coronavirus pandemic. The Texas High School Coaches Association announced Monday that its annual THSCA Coaching School and Convention that was scheduled for San Antonio is going virtual.

This is an enormous disappointment and not a decision we have taken lightly. THSCA’s Coaching School and Convention is the biggest event of the year for the association and it is our favorite way to celebrate high school coaches from all over the state with educational lectures, fellowship, and many other events. It was a tough call to make but in our efforts to support the preventative protocols set forth by our Texas school administrators, the UIL Executive Staff and governing authorities at both state and local levels, we are choosing to prioritize health and safety first.

“We appreciate the Texas High School Coaches Association working for as long as they did to try to hold their conference in San Antonio,” said Casandra Matej, President and CEO of Visit San Antonio. “This was not an easy decision for the association and its leadership, and we know from our decades-long relationship with THSCA how much they enjoy coming to our destination.  While we feel we had gone above and beyond to ensure a very safe conference, we are in uncharted territory that is requiring difficult decisions for everyone.”

The Coaching School annually attracts about 13,000 people.
