The Texas Girls Coaches Association is proud to announce the 2020 TGCA Summer Clinic will be held at the Arlington Convention Center in Arlington, Texas, on July 6-9. TGCA feels there is a need to offer an in-person clinic. Coaches, this clinic is especially designed for coaches of girls’ athletics.
TGCA is continually monitoring and working with our partners in Arlington to insure the local, state, and national protocols concerning COVID-19 are of utmost importance to insure the health and safety for all attendees and staff. To see the safety protocols regarding COVID-19 put in place by the Arlington Convention Center, the Sheraton Hotel, and the Hilton Arlington Hotel, please see the links on the TGCA website, <www.austintgca.com>.
The Texas Girls Coaches Association will not be conducting All-Star games and demonstrations at the 2020 TGCA Summer Clinic. Our coaches and athletes have been following University Interscholastic League health and safety guidelines established by the Texas Education Agency and the Governor’s office. TGCA has been involved with in-depth discussion with athletic directors, superintendents, and the UIL concerning all issues concerning our coaches. TGCA has decided, with the guidelines now in place, it is better to not pursue holding the games and demonstrations.
TGCA is still going forward with holding the 2020 Honor Awards Banquet at the Arlington Hilton on Monday, July 6. There will be a reception beginning at 6:00 p.m., and the ceremony will start at 7:00 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at www.austintgca. com or calling the TGCA office at 512-708-1333.
An updated agenda will be online at the TGCA web-site next week. Pre-registration is open for all coaches renewing their membership and registering for the 2020 TGCA Summer Clinic. We will be offering a 2020 TGCA Virtual Clinic for those coaches unable to attend or coaches in districts imposing “Travel Bans.” More information on the 2020 TGCA Virtual Clinic will be forthcoming shortly.
The Texas Girls Coaches Association encourages all coaches to meet us in Arlington to receive first quality lectures, CCP Training, and the ability to engage in socialization with fellow coaches of girls’ athletics. TGCA takes pride in being the only association in Texas that is composed of coaches of girls’ athletics, designed for coaches of girls’ athletics, and governed by coaches of girls’ athletics. We hope to see you in Arlington on July 6 – 9!
