ATLANTA, Ga. – Coker College women's basketball member Caitland Considine has been selected to participate in the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA)/Alliance of Women Coaches 16th annual "So You Want To Be A Coach" program. Considine will participate in the three-day workshop with speakers provided by the Alliance on March 28-30 in conjunction with the WBCA Convention in Columbus, Ohio.
"Caitland's dream is to become a head women's basketball coach," said Head Women's Basketball Coach Shannon Johnson. "She has put in a lot of time at the Point Guard College leading up to this opportunity."
The objectives of the "So You Want To Be A Coach" program are to increase the understanding and application of skills necessary to secure coaching positions in women's basketball, increase the understanding and awareness of competencies necessary for success in coaching, introduce female basketball players to coaches and administrators, and raise awareness of the existing talent pool of female basketball players who have a passion and interest in coaching the game of women's basketball.
The WBCA "So You Want To Be A Coach" program has graduated 814 participants in its 15-year history. Of these, 54 percent (not counting the 2017 class) are currently working in women's or girls' basketball at various levels of the profession. A total of 53 "So You Want To Be A Coach" alumni are head women's or girls' basketball coaches — five in NCAA Division I, three in NCAA Division II, 11 in NCAA Division III, one in the NAIA, four on the two-year college level, and 29 on the high school level.
"We are extremely excited for Caitland to be selected to this program and we know she will benefit greatly from it," said Johnson. "We wish her the very best in her future endeavors after her time at Coker."
Considine is the daughter of Cinnamon McCauley, Tom Considine, and Barry McCauley. She has one sibling Carter and majors in Exercise Science.
