ATHLETIC DIRECTOR INSTITUTE

The 2018 KHSAA Athletic Director Institute will be held at the KHSAA offices in Lexington on Tuesday, September 18. Designed for ADs of all experience levels, this meeting will begin with registration around 8:30, conclude before 3:00. A light lunch (sandwich box, etc.) will be provided by the KHSAA for those who register prior to September 13. There will be a short break following this meeting and then those who optionally choose to do so may choose to attend the expanded training being offered by the KHSADA that evening.

The KHSAA staff will conduct the first portion of the meeting which should afford our newer and veteran ADs an in-depth review of all 27 KHSAA Bylaws, a review of required forms and procedures and other vital segments to allow for continuous improvement. Though it is not restricted in terms of attendance, many veteran ADs may find the content redundant. The meeting is being held so that those with travel concerns can come for the meeting on the 19th, stay in the Lexington area that night, and attend the Annual Meeting the next morning. Lunch will be provided to attendees.

This meeting will provide six hours toward the Bylaw 25 requirement for Athletic Directors, in addition to EILA Credit as applicable.

To register for the day session, go to https://schools.khsaa.org/ge47-2018-2019-advanced-athletic-administrators-institute-form/.

  • Music copyrights

KHSADA LEADERSHIP TRAINING

From 4:00 to 8:30 on September 18, leaders from within the KHSADA and NIAAA will host additional leadership training for Athletic Directors. Those interested in taking a course should contact Hugh McReynolds, KHSADA Executive Director by email at hugh.mcreynolds@outlook.com or by calling 270-726-0192. A light meal will be served for those registered attendees. Registration deadline for the class is Thursday, September 6, in order for class materials to be ordered and meal plans finalized. See the complete brochure at https://khsaa.org/schools/Continual%20Education%20KHSADA.pdf

These courses will provide four hours toward the Bylaw 25 requirement for Athletic Directors.
