Professional Development

Leadership Training Courses developed by the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA) are offered at the South Carolina Spring Conference for Athletics in March in Charleston, SC.

These courses are also offered through webinars by the NIAAA and at the NIAAA Conference in December of each year. A number of colleges and universities use these courses in conjunction with other requirements to earn a Masters Degree in Athletic Administration.


Leadership Training Courses are specifically designed to address issues that high school and middle school athletic directors must deal with in their programs.  Courses are updated every five years to insure the most current information and best practices.


NIAAA offers different levels of Certification which can be earned by completing these courses.  SCAAA encourages all athletic directors and coaches who hope to become athletic directors to take some of these courses and achieve suitable levels of Certification.  As the leader of all athletic programs in your school, it is imperative that you are aware of legal liabilities, issues and concerns that can arise.  LTC courses cover such topics as dealing with difficult parents, curb appeal of facilities, legal issues, synthetic turf and many more.
