Coaches Symposium  –  Early Registration Deadline:  June 30, 2016

The SHSAA is proud to offer the 2016 Coaches Symposium!   The Symposium is an excellent opportunity for coaches from different sporting backgrounds to gather in one location to participate in a professional development opportunity.

Are you struggling with PD Funding???  Because the Coaches Symposium occurs prior to the start of the school year, there are no sub costs to increase your PD expenses.  Additionally, the fourteen SHSAA districts are offering incentives to financially support coaches who attend.

The Coaches Symposium will be held Tuesday, August 23rd and Wednesday August 24th, 2016 at Walter Murray Collegiate in Saskatoon.

  • The Coaches Symposium features Guest Speaker, Ralph Schoenfeld, a high school and university coach that has a background in sport psychology.
