Opening Session: Through The Years
Today would have marked the second day of the 2020 USTFCCCA Convention.
And while a number of important events happen on Convention Monday, like the Women in Coaching Event and other legislative meetings, the annual Convention can’t really get underway until we have Opening Session right before lunch on Convention Tuesday.
We present a number of special awards at Opening Session, namely the Balfour Championship Rings to various national championship-winning coaches, the physical awards to our National High School Coaches of the Year in both cross country and track & field, as well as the Jimmy Carnes Distinguished Service Award to individuals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in their service to the Association and to the sports of cross country and track & field.
Opening Session has also been home to several notable keynote speakers over the years from current NCAA President Mark Emmert, former NCAA President Myles Brand and current President and Chief Operating Officer for the Golden State Warriors Rick Welts, among others.
