North Carolina High School Athletic Association

NCHSAA Coach & Captain Retreat

The fall Coach & Captain Retreat is returning during the Fall of 2023!!  Date – TBD 

The retreat is held at (Location – TBD).  A wide variety of topics will be covered, including:

  • Emphasis on leadership qualities.
  • Effective communication about issues that affect teams or groups.
  • Understanding ways to prevent substance abuse and violence in athletics.
  • Mental Health and the impact it has on high school student-athletes. 

After attending the retreat, you can expect your team to return to school and put their leadership in action.   Examples of leadership activities are creating a "drug-free" bulletin board in your school, designing a handbook for your school using a "good sportsmanship" theme, or planning a Fan Appreciation Day, to name just a few.  Accepting the invitation to the Coach & Captain Retreat carries with it the special responsibility of continuing to develop leadership among young athletes.

The Coach & Captain Retreat is an excellent opportunity for student-athletes to discuss ways to make “more of a difference” in their various schools and communities.  This retreat also brings together East and West, providing a rare opportunity for sharing of ideas.  Because we want this retreat to make an impact, we pack lots of sharing time and networking into the retreat schedule.
