The Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence is pleased to announce that the David Riley Coaches Conference will be held at this year's National Scholastic Championship on Friday night from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare.

Panelists will be announced in the next week or so. We are planning on having the first hour oriented to information pertaining to coaches, while the second hour will incorporate more of a focus concerning players.

To sign up for the conference, please use this form.

We hope to make MP3s of the conference available again this year.

Regardless of your ability to attend, your suggestions on topics to cover would be appreciated. Click here for a suggestion submission form.

I don't want to steal Fred's thunder, but I will be on the panel for this conference, at least for the second hour (about improvement)--if anyone has any specific questions or ideas for what myself or other panelists can speak on, please post here or e-mail me.
