We saw that there were a lot of good coaches out there who were failing 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 started to help coaches better understand and be more prepared for those additional off-the-court responsibilities, as well as to go through 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. We have had numerous head coaches from all collegiate levels attend HCTC to learn strategies to not just obtain a new Head Coach position, but also how to be the most successful in their current role as a Head Coach.
If their end goal is to become a Head Coach, it is never too early to learn and implement successful strategies. Hearing exactly what you go through as a Head Coach will help them relate better to your in your role, while learning necessary responsibilities will make your job easier by allowing you to delegate more easily to them and allow them to take more ownership of those responsibilities.
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. It is a lot easier to do so when you are one of 100 instead of one of several hundred.
