INTRODUCING THE TGCA SPIRIT DIVISION

TGCA is pleased to announce the addition of the TGCA Spirit Division to the TGCA umbrella. We are very excited about this addition. We welcome our cheer coaches to the TGCA fold. There are many, many reasons for cheer coaches to become a member of the Texas Girls Coaches Association. Here are just a few:
1) It brings you under the umbrella of the TGCA name and reputation.
2) You will receive the invaluable injury prevention training that is now being required, along with various general lectures on many topics, and including hands on workshops at the Spirit Division Summer Clinic. TGCA is certified by the UIL to offer the injury prevention training now required.
3) TGCA offers honors for All-Star, All-State, Academic All-State, Cheerleaders of the Year and Coaches of the Year to those cheerleaders and their member coaches who meet the TGCA criteria, which gives an opportunity to honor cheerleaders for their accomplishments. Also, UIL State Champion coaches who are members of TGCA by the November 1st deadline will be presented state champion rings courtesy of Balfour at the annual TGCA Honor Awards Banquet during Summer Clinic.
4)
You are automatically afforded a $4,000.00 Accidental Life and Dismemberment policy through American Income Life Insurance Company at no cost to you.
5) You are afforded personal representation before the UIL and the state legislators on matters affecting all member coaches under the TGCA umbrella.
6) You will receive a TGCA membership card, which will allow you access to most sporting events, depending on the venue and district rules.
7) We do an on-line Newsletter publication that runs from September until May that features photos and articles and important information to all of our coaches. Cheerleading is featured in the January issue each year.
8) We offer a Job Placement Center only for our member coaches that is on-line through the Membership Site.
These are just a few of the reasons why becoming a member of TGCA will benefit you. Should you have questions, or if you would like more information, please contact us at 512-708-1333, or by e-mail at tgca@austintgca.com.
