About NAADD:

The purpose of NAADD is to organize individuals with a mutual interest in collegiate athletics development so that (1) an agreed upon standard of excellence can be established; (2) educational and development successes can be shared; and (3) a united voice of opinion can be heard on key issues facing collegiate athletics in general and collegiate athletics development specifically.

In 1993, NAADD formulated a partnership with the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) to administer the Association and hold our annual Workshop in conjunction with NACDA's Annual Convention.

  • NAADD's membership has grown to more than 1,500 intercollegiate athletics development directors.
  • NAADD will continue to grow together with NACDA to provide educational and networking opportunities.
