Poudre School District hosted Coaches of Character, a professional development event focused on education-based coaching skills.

225 coaches from the state attended the event, which was sponsored by Poudre School District and the local organization CHAMP (Character in Athletics Make it a Priority). 

Poudre School District athletic director Russ McKinstry saw the day as a successful one.

"We are fortunate to have amazing coaches and athletic directors in Fort Collins and northern Colorado," McKinstry said. "They have bought into the Inside Out coaching initiative that CHSAA is promoting, and the large turnout Saturday morning again demonstrates our coaches are committed to giving the student athletes of Poudre School District the best, most positive athletic experience possible."

The keynote speaker was Paul Ressa of Newman Smith High School in Dallas, Texas.
