Coaches retreat versus coaching school?
Just about three years ago I was fortunate enough to join the teaching and coaching staff at Denison High School. Traditionally the Dension coaching staff (like 95+% of all Texas coaching staffs)would attend the THSCA coacning school usually held in July (right before most football staffs return to full time work getting ready for two a days) at one of Texas' fine large cities(Dallas/Fort Worth,Austin,Houston,San Antonio). Rather than continue that trend our head coach ,Cody White, proposed to our staff that we look into using this time to go on a coaches "retreat". The idea was not a completely new one but it was something we all decided was worth a shot. We booked some "cabins" Broken Bow, Oklahoma and arranged our own guest speaker Gene Stallings..
