Never Too Late To Learn…

As the school year winds down I’ve always found myself excited about attending the annual TABC clinic each May. This year, especially, will be no exception! The chance to learn new ideas, as well as see and meet coaches from across the state, has always been a rite of spring for Texas High School basketball coaches.

Last year’s on-line virtual clinic would not have been as big a success as it was without the expertise of the TABC board in general, and Board members Doug Brotherton & Matt Farmer, in particular. To put the clinic together in short order with outstanding speakers from across the nation & the world was outstanding.

This year we’ll be in person again for the clinic where the coaching fraternity can indeed share ideas and concepts from others in the traditional format. This year’s speakers are at the top of their game and, I for one, can’t wait to learn from them.

As I will be leaving as President of TABC at the conclusion of this year’s clinic, to say that this has been the honor of the highest order would be an understatement! I am truly humbled by serving in this role.

See you at the clinic!

Best Swishes, Mike Carrabine, 2020-2021 TABC president
