Message from the Executive Director

Greetings to our Coaching Friends!

Hope each of you are weathering the cold days of Winter well. Soon spring will arrive and we will be moving into our Summer Clinic and the State Games.

These are scheduled for July 8th thru July 12 at the Convention Center in Hampton. The Embassy Suites will again be the host hotel for these events and you will find information in the VHSCA magazine and on the website.

Our membership remains at around 7,000. Although we have some who have gone to the VHSL Coaches pass. You will find the value of your membership listed in this edition of the magazine.

Here is hoping you will be able to join us for the Clinic and games this summer. This is always a time to visit with our Coaching friends and share ideas, considering our members being friends and the Association being our bonding force - the following should be a guideline for our Coaching friendships.

Once being asked how we should treat our friends, Aristotle said, 'As we would wish them to treat us.' And then ask what a friend is, he answered, 'One soul abiding in two bodies.'

May God's blessing be with each of you,

Michael L. Smith
