Inaugural THSADA Fall Forum a Huge Success
The Inaugural THSADA Fall Forum was a huge success with over 175 Athletic Administrators from around the state attending. The event was held at the Dub Farris Athletic Complex and the Northside ISD on September 24 th . A reception for attendees and sponsors was held the evening before and provided a great social time for everyone. Fall Forum was originally approved by the Board of Directors as an added THSADA event in order for Athletic Administrators to have the opportunity to come together after the school year began and several weeks of Fall sports were underway.
Topics of discussion specific to Fall Forum were TAAC classes 401 taught by THSADA sponsor Marmon Mok and TAAC 502 taught by NCS4. The UIL finished out the morning of session with a very informative preview of Legislative Council items on the horizon.
As a result of the turnout for this event, plans are already underway for next year’s Fall Forum. THSADA would also like to thank all of the Fall Forum sponsors who continually support the extra-curricular programs in the State of Texas: Marmon Mok, Daktronics, Brock USA, Musco, Whataburger, Waterboy and Hellas Construction. THSADA appreciates their contributions to all Athletic Administrators and programs in Texas.
“What a great opportunity to be involved with the THSADA. Fall Forum is a wonderful networking environment with all the Athletic Administrators throughout the state. Brock definitely will be back!”
Amy Champion-Brock USA
“The THSADA Fall Forum was well attended, informative and gave AD’s across the state a chance to network with one another during a time of year they normally wouldn’t be able to. It is always enlightening to hear the UIL give the membership up-to-date, pertinent information. Topping the forum off with a tour of Northside ISD’s athletic facilities was a perfect ending to a great two days”.
David Kuykendall-Director of Athletics-Frisco ISD
“The Fall Forum was amazing. Just getting to see the Northside ISD facility was worth the trip. The safety training was great and had a lot of useful information that was relevant to all of us. This time of year is crazy for all of us and getting to network/visit with everyone is always such an encouragement for the long semester. Thank you for having this forum and look forward to next year”.
Maria Kennedy-Director of Athletics-El Paso ISD
“I really enjoyed the first “Fall Forum” put on by THSADA and Northside ISD especially the great line-up of speakers and the opportunity to network with other athletic directors”
