The SCA Coaches Conference Virtual Series
Thursdays 6:00 pm
August 6th – September 24, 2020
With the challenges of COVID-19 this year, the SCA Annual Coaches Conference will be going virtual!
The SCA Coaches Conference Virtual Series will be a series of sessions offered to our 100+ SCA coaches, coaches-in-training and junior coaches. Our primary goal for this conference is to offer top quality education to our coaches while keeping the cost at a minimum – which means we are offering the conference to our SCA coaches for FREE. The series will offer sessions from several Saskatchewan coaches and experts as well as guest presenters in partnership with the SCA from across Canada. The series promises widespread content and training from leadership development to skill progressions and everything in-between.
Sessions will be offered either live via Zoom or a prerecorded presentation shared with coaches. Coaches must register to gain access to all sessions.
The live sessions will be hosted weekly at 6:00 pm on Thursdays, beginning the first week of August through to the end of September. Live sessions will be recorded and made available for those coaches who cannot attend because they are… well coaching!
