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.
The annual meeting of the Missouri Academic Coaches Association takes place Monday, October 7, 2013, at the headquarters of the Missouri High School Activities Association at 1 North Keene Street in Columbia. Conference registration is $25; more information on advance payment of this and annual membership dues can be found at the Members link on this page.
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."
The Missouri High School Activities Association (MSHSAA) and Associate Executive Director Stacy Schroeder have graciously agreed to host this year's MACA convention on September 24, 2012. A map to MSHSAA headquarters at 1 North Keene Street in columbia is attached.

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.
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.)
If you attended the 2010 MACA Convention, we would appreciate hearing what you thought about it. Please complete this survey so that we can make next year's convention even better!
“The Brainstorm at the Lake,” MACA’s annual conference, hit the Inn at Grand Glaize in Osage Beach on September 26-27, and was declared a success. The day featured a variety of breakout sessions, a “new” president in the morning, and an election of a vice-president in the afternoon. Coach of the Year awards went to four top coaches, and member-emeritus Troy Kinast won the Carol Farmer Founders Award. One karma-charmed member won a new ZeeCraft buzzer system, donated by the ZeeCraft people.
Stacy Schroeder, Associate Executive Director of the Missouri State High School Activities Association, has announced that the MSHSAA has moved the date that the Scholar Bowl online rules review becomes available from the originally scheduled date of Friday, October 1 to Monday, October 4. The rulebook packets are being shipped on Wednesday, September 29 and people really need to have the rulebook in hand before they do the rules review. MSHSAA anticipates that more coaches will have them in hand if they post the review on Monday.
