More than 200 Beaufort County School District coaches from middle and high schools gathered for training and inspiration Monday, August 5th at the district’s first Fall Coaches Convocation.
Workshops and guest speakers addressed topics ranging from effective coaching and legal issues to sportsmanship and integrating students with disabilities into school athletic programs. The event was held at Beaufort High School.
Chief Student Services Officer Gregory McCord said early reviews of the event from coaches were positive, and he has already set aside a date next summer for a second district-wide convocation.
“As a school district, we believe it’s important that we’re all on the same page when it comes to our expectations for student athletes and coaches,” McCord said. “This annual event will provide an excellent forum for that. It also was terrific to see coaches who are rivals in their sports during the year come together for a day of fellowship.”
