CONVENTION UPDATE: Women In Coaching Panel Back For Fifth Year

NEW ORLEANS – The Women in Coaching Panel, the fastest growing event at the annual USTFCCCA Convention, returns for its fifth year.

Started in 2014, the Women in Coaching Panel is a program exclusively for the female coaches in attendance each December at the USTFCCCA Convention. Each and every female coach who is registered for the USTFCCCA Convention is invited to take part in the event.


Like the past two years, the Women in Coaching Panel will be held on the first official day of the USTFCCCA Convention. That day is Monday, December 17 this year and the USTFCCCA Convention is taking place at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa.

Attendees to the Women in Coaching Panel will get to hear from two outstanding groups of female coaches as they’ll share perspectives and experiences relating to the challenges women face in the coaching profession.

The first panel, entitled “Being a Coach and a Mother,” is designed for coaching moms to “get into the reality of life as a mom, coupled with a career coaching track & field and/or cross country.” UCF Director of Cross Country and Track & Field Dana Boone, UTSA assistant coach Jackie Richards and Fresno State assistant coach April Smith will “share how they navigated becoming a coaching mother and provide advice for coaches who are already moms as well as tips for those who may become moms in the future or provide best practices for those who work with coaching moms.”

The second panel, entitled, “Work/Life Balance as a Woman in Coaching,” is designed for the panelists – Colorado assistant coach Lindsey Malone, Duke head women’s cross country coach and assistant track & field coach Rhonda Riley and BYU associate head track & field coach Diljeet Taylor – to “explore issues pertaining to the work/life balance and will shed some light on how their work/life balance has changed over time.” Malone, Riley and Taylor will also discuss the best practices and practical steps all women can take to achieve a better balance between work and life.
