CONVENTION: Women In Coaching Seminars Take Center Stage

SAN ANTONIO – For the seventh year in a row, the Women in Coaching Event took center stage on the first day of the USTFCCCA Convention.

Two-hundred-and-seventy-five female coaches converged on the Nelson Wolff Exhibit Ballroom at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa for the annual event, which covered two important topics in 2018: “Being a Coach and a Mother” and “Work/Life Balance as a Woman in Coaching.”

Topics were chosen after event coordinator Rhonda Riley, who is the head women’s cross country coach and assistant track & field coach at Duke University, gathered important information from past and future attendees.

“A lot of women came up to me after and said that we needed a discussion about being a mother in this profession,” Riley said. “Another issue that was brought up multiple times in the past was how to balance coaching and rest of life. And in order to encourage younger women to continue in this profession, it’s important to see examples of work-life balance.”

Convention-goers in 2018 heard from an incredible assortment of speakers during the near two-hour-long event. Dana Boone of the University of Central Florida, Jackie Richards of UTSA and April Smith of Fresno State University spoke on the “Being a Coach and a Mother” topic, while Riley, Lindsey Malone of the University of Colorado and Diljeet Taylor of BYU opined on the “Work/Life Balance as a Woman in Coaching.”

“We spend a lot of time on choosing the panel and have a good variety of coaches that have been successful at every level,” Riley said. “We will continue to get new faces and fresh viewpoints in front of these women as this event continues to grow.”

The 2018 USTFCCCA Conventions continues through Thursday night at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa.
