The Hall of Fame is the highest honor given to a coach as a culmination of the whole package of their career.  A coach takes on multiple responsibilities in working with young people and the Hall of Fame Committee uses the all parts when selecting their members.  Each new member of the Hall of Fame will be presented with a "Red Jacket" standing out to signify the special recognition that the member has reached.  Each new member is also given a Hall of Fame ring to wear with pride at all times.  The Inductees are introduced and presented to attendees of the TTCA Convention each year at the Coach of the Year and Hall of Fame Awards Banquet, sponsored by Wilson Sporting Goods, held on Friday evening of the annual convention in December.

To nominate a deserving coach for Hall of Fame, the nominator must be a current member of the TTCA.  Please fill out the Hall of Fame Nomination form and read carefully to submit all needed materials and letters online by the Deadline of April 15!  All nominations will be completed online and all documents must be submitted when the form if filled out.
