We saw that there were a lot of good coaches out there who were struggling as a Head Coach, not just because of on-the-court results. They weren’t successful in, for example, managing and delegating to staff, relationship building with their administration, or strategic scheduling. There were numerous clinics that focused on the on-the-court aspects of coaching, but those who have been a Head Coach understand that so much more goes into the position. HCTC was founded to help coaches better understand, be more prepared for, and thrive in handling those additional off-the-court responsibilities, as well as the search and interview process. In doing so, we wanted a well-rounded experience for coaches to learn from not just head coaches, but from athletic administrators and search firms as well.
HCTC focuses exclusively on off-the-court development for coaches, as well provides an invaluable networking opportunity between coaches, athletic administrators, conference commissioners, and search firm executives.
Absolutely not. HCTC’s exclusive focus on off-the-court professional development provides a unique and valuable learning opportunity for both current head coaches and assistant coaches who aspire to one day obtain a Head Coach position. Numerous head coaches from all collegiate levels have attended HCTC to learn proven strategies to be the most successful in their current role as a Head Coach.
If their ultimate goal is to become a Head Coach, it is never too early to learn and implement successful strategies. Hearing exactly what you go through on a daily basis as a Head Coach will help them better relate to you in your role. They will also learn critical responsibilities associated with being a Head Coach, which will make your job easier by allowing you to more easily delegate to them and allow them to take more ownership of those responsibilities.
For the first time, HCTC24 will offer an Assistant Coach Training Center Track that will run in conjunction with HCTC. During HCTC, the ACTC Track will feature breakout sessions where assistant coaches will learn proven strategies to improve and flourish in their current roles. Assistant coaches will also have the opportunity to network with current and future head coaches.

Yes. Registration is limited to 100 registrants. One of the aspects that makes HCTC special is the intimate learning and networking environment. We want attendees to be comfortable in asking questions and taking advantage of networking opportunities with our incredible speakers. That is a lot easier to do when you are one of 100 registrants instead of one of several hundred.
