Coaches’ Conference

2020 Coaches’ Conference Virtual Series

Every Thursday at 6 pm from August 6th, 2020 to September 24th, 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 pre-recorded 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!

Pre-recorded sessions also available upon registration:

Katie Marzolf – Cheer Infinity Athletics – “Athlete Bubble – How to Teach Young Athletes to Stay in Their Space”
Katie Marzolf – Cheer Infinity Athletics – “Coaching Tiny Novice”
Kelly McNally – Total Spirit – “What’s in YOUR Pro Shop?”

All live sessions will be recorded and made available to all registered for the conference.
