Letter from the President

Dear Coaches,

I am incredibly honored and grateful for the trust you have placed in me as President of the South Carolina Athletic Coaches Association. It is truly an honor and a privilege to serve in this role and lead such a dedicated group of coaching professionals.

I have been coaching for over 40 years as a head high school basketball coach in the great state of South Carolina including the Collegiate level. The thing I will always remember once I retire, will not necessarily be the games I coached in, but the relationships I formed with coaches across our great state. I am encouraging each of you to join the South Carolina Athletic Coaches Association of South Carolina. I am encouraging you to join to help grow the game & to be able to be a part of something that will help you build relationships with coaches across our state.

I am committed to upholding the values and mission of our association, and I look forward to working collaboratively with all of you to further our goals and objectives. 

As we embark on this journey together, I am confident that our collective efforts will lead to positive outcomes for our association and the coaches we represent. Your support and dedication are invaluable, and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as your President.

I wish everyone the absolute best in the upcoming season. Together, we can achieve remarkable things and make a positive impact on the lives of those we serve. Do not hesitate to reach out if I can ever help you. Thank you once again for this incredible opportunity.

Best Regards,


Zachary Norris
