President’s Message

Dear TABC Members,
As we continue our busy season, I understand some of us have been faced with different challenges. The start of a new season will bring more challenges as well. I simply ask that all of us take a step back and reflect on our profession and think about the amazing things our profession has to offer. All of us have been influenced by someone in this profession or in some aspect of our coaching career. I ask that you reach out to the person who has had the most influence on your career. Reflect on your decision to become a coach and continue to ask for guidance from this person. This is a great opportunity to continue to learn more about yourself and to build on your career. Another option would be to reach out to a younger coach in the profession and provide guidance and mentorship. Offer assistance and make sure they know you are available if needed. Check on others, make sure they are “OK”. The coaching network is a solid foundation of men and women who are very similar with very few differences. Everyone is looking to make an impact on others. We can learn so much from each other. Best of luck to all as we move forward in the season. Can’t wait to watch your teams play in March.

In hoops regards,
C.J. Villegas – TABC President
