Learn and discuss best practices with other Athletic Professionals
It is now taken for granted that a good Athletic Director should understand the nuances of operations, facilities management, scheduling, transportation, officials, uniforms, budgets, etc.
More importantly, after those functional prerequisites, the truly great Athletic Director must have an innate ability to relate to students, and ALSO understand the newer, critical issues that factor into a student’s athletic experience at a school: Name, Image & Likeness (NIL), club teams, social media, strength and conditioning, nutrition, sports psychology, total wellness (physical and mental), marketing/branding, enrollment pressures, working collaboratively with admissions departments, and the role of athletics in concert with academics and the arts.
10-15 Athletic Administrators are invited to collaborate monthly via Zoom to discuss current best practices in their field.
WHO CAN JOIN: Any aspiring, new or veteran Athletic Administrators
COST: $300 - entitles you to participate in any and all of the 2022-2023 Workshops
