Parents expect high-quality coaching on the field and court just like they expect high-quality teaching in the classroom. Yet, coach training and development isn’t a priority at many schools. Regents School of Austin’s Director of Athletics, Beck Brydon, will discuss Regents’ new Coaching Excellence program, a three-year training program for full and part-time coaches.
Beck Brydon is the Director of Athletics for Regents School of Austin in Austin, Texas, a position he has held since 2006. He served as Regents’ Director of Advancement from 2004-2006. In addition to being a member of Regents’ senior staff team, Coach B has also served the school as a Senior Thesis Advisor (11 years), Campus Development Committee member, and panel moderator for both Regents Moms and Regents Dads Boot Camps. Coach B’s vision is to redeem sports for Christ, one heart, one team and one event at a time. While seemingly a monumental task given today’s culture, it is the primary goal from which all 90 coaches of 55 athletic teams spanning 15 different sports at Regents, operate. Coach B is currently an Executive Board Member of the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS), the primary governing body of private school athletics and fine arts in the state of Texas. He and his wife Trish, a 7th grade English teacher at Regents, will be celebrating their 26th wedding anniversary this year. They have three children who all attend Regents – Will Tyler (19), Annie (17), and Benjamin (16). When he is not coaching or coaching coaches, Coach B loves family vacations to the beach or mountains, playing golf and fishing.
