TUESDAY CANCELLATIONS
Weather causing havoc with GHSA playoffs

Throughout the day, Score Atlanta will be updating cancellations tonight for the GHSA Basketball Tournament on ScoreATL.com. The first round for the girl's teams was scheduled for tonight but a school cannot play in a playoff game the same day the school is closed because of inclement weather.

 

Already this morning Score is beginning

to receive schedule changes and McEachern athletics director Jimmy Dorsey informed us that his girls' team will host Douglas County Wednesday night at 6 p.m. following by the boys' game against Westlake.

 

The GHSA released the following statement:

 

Attention basketball coaches: because of threat of inclement weather this week, the GHSA is issuing the following notice concerning first-round state basketball playoff games:

 

If you can do so safely, please play first-round games in classes AA through AAAAAA as scheduled Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb. 17 and 18.

 

However, if weather is a problem in your area, the GHSA is giving permission to move any Tuesday girls' games to Wednesday. Those games can then be played as part of a doubleheader, if all the participating teams agree. OR you can move the girls' games to Wednesday and move the scheduled boys' games from Wednesday to Thursday. But IF AT ALL POSSIBLE, all first-round games in AA through AAAAAA MUST be completed by Thursday night because we expect the next round to be played as scheduled on Friday (Feb. 20) and Saturday (Feb. 21).

 

Please notify the GHSA office of any changes made to the original schedule. And remember that TWO rounds of games in Classes AA through AAAAAA (and the first round of Class A) MUST BE FINISHED BY SATURDAY NIGHT, FEB. 21st!

 

Please CLICK HERE for updated school closings.

GLAZIER COACHING CLINICS
Glazier clinics helping coaches improve

While so much attention is paid to high school football players attending camps during the offseason to improve their route-running, kicking or tackling, why is so little attention paid to the men who coach the players during the season? Many coaches also use the offseason to get better with their schemes, formations and coaching techniques by attending coaching clinics.

 

One of the top companies that offers the best clinics across the country is Glazier Clinics. Founded by Frank Glazier in 1976, the Glazier Clinics are all about football, focusing on the X's and O's and the concepts of coaching. Glazier is a former coach who invented the clinics in order help other coaches better hone their craft. He invited some of the best coaches to share their particular area of expertise on a topic, and Glazier Clinics is still doing that to this day.

 

Allen Means of Glazier Clinics admits that no other company can offer the same amount of content that a Glazier Clinic coaching clinic weekend can offer.

 

"Not many companies can match our sessions," said Means. "We offer 100-150 topics at each clinch and the sessions range from basic to advanced."

 

Glazier Clinics achieves its success through the content gathered. Means noted that the company picks the best coaches in a particular area of the country and then asks them to share what they excel at on the sidelines.

 

"We study pretty hard to find the right coaches and big influencers," said Means. "The biggest thing is that they are successful."

 

Glazier Clinics has chosen top high school coaches, smaller college coaches and assistant coaches from bigger schools. They will then gather all of the content these coaches have to offer by collecting notes from the speakers in order to make that available through webinars and online clinics.

 

Perhaps the best part of Glazier Clinics is that the company wants to help as many coaches as possible. A head coach can sign up for a season pass which gives him and his entire staff, including feeder programs, unlimited online access to coaching clinics and webinars as well as a pass to all of the coaching clinics across the country for only $397. There is also a program through Sportdecals and Hudl, which allows youth coaches to attend the coaching clinics for just $10.

 

Glazier Clinics has added two special teams clinics to the schedule this year, which will give them 36 clinics in 31 cities with over 40,000 football coaches in attendance. The Renaissance Atlanta Waverly hosted the first Atlanta Clinic from Feb. 6-8 and the Westin Buckhead will host the Atlanta 150 Clinic on Feb. 27 - Mar 1. The 150 Clinic will include 150 speaking sessions with topics covering 12 different subject areas with unprecedented depth, including schemes and fundamentals. The 150 clinic will have high school and small college speakers and will be focused on getting the most content covered over the weekend. The first clinic will be the larger of the two and will have more big name speakers.


 

It is also hard to argue with the results of the Glazier Clinics. Nine of the 2013 Georgia top-ten teams attend Glazier Clinics. Six of the seven 2013 Georgia State Champions attend Glazier Clinics.

 

In 1976, Frank Glazier decided he wanted share his passion for football with coaches from all across the country. Today, his passion lives on and the Glazier way is helping programs across the country coach young men the right way.

 

The 2014-15 GHSA state basketball playoff fields are set in Class AA-AAAAA and first-round action for the 32-team boys and girls brackets will take place this Tuesday and Wednesday. Class A-Public and A-Private power rankings will be finalized early this week before the playoff field is set and its first round will take place Friday and Saturday.
