The Eastern Cincinnati Conference is one of the premier athletic and academic conferences in Ohio.  The ECC is comprised of Anderson, Kings, Loveland, Milford, Turpin, Walnut Hills, West Clermont, and Withrow High Schools.  In addition, Little Miami, Lebanon, and Winton Woods will join the conference in the 2020-2021 school year, making an already tremendous conference even better!

One of the things that makes the Eastern Cincinnati Conference special is the member schools' ability to come together as one and support each another - whether it be in times of sorrow, triumph, or sportsmanship and leadership.  This was best exemplified April 12 when the conference held its inaugural ECC Leadership Summit at Kings High School.  The event featured a number of team-building activities.  Guest speakers included UC Athletic Director Mike Bohn, NFL Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz, OHSFCA Hall of Famer Vince Soriano, and Kings football coaches Alex Garvin and Ron Corradini.

COACH AND MENTOR BATTLE ON SOCCER FIELD

People wonder why coaches do what they do.  Here's a perfect illustration as to why coaches spend time away from home, hurt after loses, travel to scout opponents, battle angry parents, plead with Boosters for funds, and on and on.

Coaches do it because they know that sometimes, along the way, they have an impact on a player's life. 

Here's one such example HERE ... Jill Helms from Milford.  She's turning a program around, using much of what she learned from her mentor and Loveland head coach Todd Kelly.
