Emory University women's basketball senior Charlotte Lowndes has been selected to the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) 20th annual "So You Want To Be A Coach" program, as announced by the organization Tuesday afternoon.
Lowndes is one of 62 women's basketball players across all levels of collegiate basketball who will participate in the two-day workshop on March 30-31 in conjunction with the WBCA Convention in Dallas, Texas.
The "So" program increases the understanding and application of skills necessary to secure coaching positions in women's basketball, increases the understanding and awareness of competencies necessary for success in coaching, introduces female basketball players to coaches and administrators, and raises awareness of the existing talent pool of female basketball players who have a passion and interest in coaching the game of women's basketball. "So" participants will learn about the administrative side of coaching, recruiting, how to get hired, skill development, the importance of knowing the rules, and how to balance work and life.
Lowndes is the fourth-ever Emory women's player to be selected to the program, joining Eagles Head Coach Misha Jackson, current Wheaton College Assistant Coach Allison Chernow and former Middlebury College Assistant Coach Savannah Morgan.
