You can help support the promotion of academic competition in Missouri.

All Missouri academic coaches, as well as those interested in promoting excellence in academic competition, are eligible for membership in MACA.

MACA uses its dues to purchase medals for all-district and all-state teams, to host a state-wide Junior Varsity tournament, and to support Missouri national competition teams. We also provide aid and information to coaches through newsletters and e-mail correspondence. In addition, MACA hosts an informative annual convention each fall.

In Memoriam: MACA VP Bob Brown

It is with great sadness that we forward the news of the recent passing of MACA vice-president Bob Brown, longtime member of the coaching staff at Richland High School. Bob had maintained his strong connections to our activity despite a series of strokes over the last several months. In the words of Bill Luce, the dean of Missouri academic competition, "Bob was very dedicated to Scholar Bowl and he will be missed."

2012 MACA Conference September 23-24

The annual MACA Conference will happen on September 23-24, 2012, in Columbia. All coaches and sponsors (especially new coaches and sponsors!)are encouraged to attend. The Missouri State High School Activities Association will tentatively “host,” providing conference and breakout rooms for the Monday sessions, thanks to the generous intercession of MSHSAA Associate Executive Director Stacy Schroeder. That means that planning for next year begins, and the window of opportunity opens for volunteers who have new ideas (or even old ones) for presenting breakout sessions.

2011 Annual MACA Conference

The annual conference of the Missouri Academic Coaches Association—also known as “The First-Ever Second Annual Brainstorm at the Lake”—took place on Sept. 25-26, 2011, at Osage Beach, Missouri. The free exchange of ideas, information and opinions scored a success with attendees from across the state (except for that one grouchy guy—you know the one I mean.)
