TGCA CERTIFICATE OF SENIOR ACHIEVEMENT

The Texas Girls Coaches Association, along with our coaches and their athletes, were devastated when our schools were forced to close for the rest of the 2019-20 school year due to COVID-19. This action resulted in the elimination of the spring sports' seasons. TGCA is offering a template online for our coaches to be able to print a Certificate of Senior Achievement for all senior athletes and senior support staff members that were unable to finish their seasons. We feel this is a way TGCA and our coaches can show our appreciation and recognition for these very deserving individuals. The certificate template can be found at this link:

http://www.austintgca.com/pdf/Cert_of_Senior_Achievement.pdf

It can also be found on the TGCA website under the Forms category in the menu on the left-hand side of the main page. It will also be located on each of the following individual sports pages: soccer, track, tennis, golf and softball. It is in an editable PDF format, so that you can fill in the athlete's name, the school and the sport. This is for you to print and distribute, if you wish, to your senior athletes in these spring sports.
