We invite you to join us for an info session on October 4 about the Belonging and Inclusion Station (BIS) and discuss how you can easily implement a station at your tournament. Dr. Paul Porter, our Director of DEI, will discuss the purpose of the BIS, the investigative process, and training opportunities for Belonging and Inclusion Advocates.
If your program is lucky enough to have assistant coaches, please be sure to add them to your NSDA roster and purchase their coaching memberships. This ensures they can earn the points they deserve for coaching and begin progress toward coaching awards.
We're developing a guide to lobbying for an assistant coach. Do you have a success story or lessons learned to share? Email Annie Reisener, Director of Membership.
We have introduced a new online district to open competition opportunities to teams with barriers to access due to religious practices, geography, or other conflicts. The online district’s competition will be online, and the district is open to any school that can demonstrate their school’s students are structurally unable to participate in competitions on Fridays and Saturdays. Schools that join this online district will be removed from their current district. To learn more, please email us.
