Opinion on the Annual CADA Conference this year!
Every year I list the reasons not to attend:
1. Terrible timing, too close to May
2. I should use the money towards my athletic programs to cover their needs
3. Is it really worth the expense?
Every year I return, and I am always SO glad I went.
1. I came away with knowledge, resources, and connections that have more value than how I would have spent the funds otherwise.
2. I came away reaffirmed that I'm not the only AD that feels overwhelmed, underfunded, and just trying to strike a balance between home and work.
3. The time away from the chaos at school allowed me to tackle some tasks that I had been putting off, unable to tackle because of the time and focus that they required.
I've already put it in my calendar for next year. Sometimes it takes leaving the dance floor to stand on the balcony to be able to be in a place to reflect and grow.

Sports are avalued part of our culture. We valuesports because we believe the students who are involved acquire somethingthrough their participation.

Each year we are presented with an opportunity to provide growth-filled experiences for the students we coach. As we begin another year as a coach of education-based athletics and activities, take a moment and reflect on this question — “What will you give the students on your team this year that will sustain them beyond the physical aspects of the game you coach?” You can best answer this question by reflecting on the following four questions:
The Colorado High School Coaches Association is excited to once again provide you with a professional growth opportunity through this year’s Multi-Sport Coaching Clinic. The clinic dates are July 29-30.
