The MHSTCA encourages all members to also join the Montana Coaches Association if you aren't already a member. Most years we do not have enough coaches as members of the MCA to qualify for Coach of the Year Awards in our own catagory as tennis coaches. We are often lumped in with the category "Boys" Special Sports and "Girls" Special Sports where the nominees compete with other sports like soccer, swimming, softball in all classifications. If we have enough tennis coaches as members to qualify as our own Tennis category, the nominees compete against other tennis coaches in their own classifications. We need to toot our own horns and get the word out about the good job our Montana High School Tennis Coaches are doing. Please consider joining the MCA. You can find a membership link on our own membership page.
