Men’s/Boys’ Track & Programming

In addition to the educational sessions, you won’t want to miss the Men’s Coaches General Meeting on Friday afternoon. Also, make plans to attend the Men’s Team Coaches Happy Hour on Friday evening and the Boys’ Talent Showcase on Saturday morning. The Boys’ Talent Showcase is a recruiting event developed for men’s college team coaches attending the convention. The event is open to uncommitted and unsigned high school and two-year college players.

Please see the schedule below for men’s/boy’s programming during the convention and virtual convention. Be sure to check back frequently for updates as new programming will be added to the schedule leading up to the convention.
