Football coaches from around the Imperial Valley met for a clinic in the gymnasium of Southwest High School in El Centro on Saturday to discuss everything from coaching quarterbacks to weight training.
The event was conducted by the Imperial Valley Football Coaches Association and coaches of all levels were present.
Familiar faces included Southwest coach Brian Hay, Brawley coach John Bishop, Calexico coach David Gonzales, and Vincent Memorial coach Jaime Santos.
The president of the IVFCA, Imperial coach Mike Swearingen, and the vice president, Holtville coach Jim Sturgeon, led the event.
Swearingen said the IVFCA plans to have a clinic every year and this year's was the kickoff.
He said coaches can learn a wide variety of techniques about many aspects of the game at such events.
"They're going to pick up everything from ideas on offense and defense to fundamentals and to anything that deals with football," Swearingen said. "Our purpose is to promote football in the Valley."
