Dalton State College to offer free workshop next week

John McCarthy — the former director of the NAIA Division I men’s basketball tournament, coach, athletic director and author — will share his research on the common traits of legendary coaches in a free workshop at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 15 at Dalton State College.

The program, which is sponsored by Dalton State’s intercollegiate athletics program, will be held in room 105 of the James E. Brown Center, located at the corner of Mt. Haven Driver and College Drive.

Before joining the NAIA, McCarthy served as basketball coach at Wilmington College in Delaware and later as athletic director at Lynn University in Florida. In addition to serving as tournament director for the NAIA, he also helped manage the NAIA’s “Champions of Character” program, which promotes academic excellence and community service among student athletes.

“We are inviting John to Dalton as a service to local coaches, who are so important to our community and our athletic program,” Dalton State athletic director Derek Waugh said. “As a coach myself, I try to take any opportunity to see what other coaches are doing and how they are successful. John McCarthy has done a lot of research on what makes great coaches great and his program should be beneficial to anyone coaching at any level.”

All area coaches are invited to attend the free program; no registration is necessary. To learn more, write to dwaugh@daltonstate.edu.

The school relaunched its intercollegiate athletics program earlier this year after a decades-long hiatus. Competition will begin next year with men’s basketball, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s tennis, women’s volleyball, men’s and women’s cross country, and competition cheerleading.
