About IADA

To improve athletic understanding and relationship throughout the high schools of our state and nation.
Message From IADA President
The strength of any organization is the size of it's membership. One of our initiatives this year is to have every AD in Illinois become a member of the IADA.  

Our goal is to help you make connections and to provide you with the resources to become a more effective athletic administrator.   

John Catalano, IADA President
