North Carolina High School Athletic Association

New Member Orientation Held At NCHSAA Offices

         CHAPEL HILL—The North Carolina High School Athletic Association hosted 40 school administrators from across the state on Tuesday for a special workshop.

         The workshop/orientation is designed for personnel at new member schools joining the NCHSAA or for athletic directors new to their role at a member school. The 40 individuals represented 34 different schools or school systems.

        Several members of the NCHSAA staff presented information to the group, covering a huge variety of topics.  The history of the NCHSAA, realignment, officiating program, finances, special programs and additional opportunities for schools were all discussed.

         A special emphasis was provided on rules and regulations of the NCHSAA, along with a number of tools that schools can use at the local level to help with administration and compliance.

         In addition, a group of over 20 took Leadership Training Courses (LTC) offered by the National Interscholastic Athletic Association (NIAAA) following the orientation session. The NIAAA courses are part of that organization’s certification process for athletic administrators.
