The NHADA is proud to support the efforts of our education-based athletic leaders at the middle level. We look forward to partnering with more middle school athletic directors as we move forward. We have expanded our Executive Board to include a middle school athletic director representative, David Babin, from Merrimack Middle School. He will be reaching out to all middle school ADs soon to introduce himself and his involvement in the NHADA.
Our goal is to offer Leadership Training Classes to you to help you become better prepared for the position, to give you a voice in our organization and to give you an opportunity to network with other ADs outside your area. We want to help but need to know what your needs are. Look for a survey once David makes contact with you.
