The main goal of the mentoring program is to connect new athletic administrators with proven successful mentors. The IADA has many successful athletic administrators throughout the state and there are many of them who are available in most areas and are glad to assist with the most minimal to the most complex issues in our business.

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.
