The California State Athletic Directors Association has been one of the biggest volunteer associations for most of its fifty plus years of existence. The mission which has developed is to create an athletic directors’ educational organization to help increase the professionalism, knowledge and consistency of Athletic Directors in schools throughout California.

CSADA has created a strong connection with the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) from its inception establishing a professional support system needed to further its vision.

Awards have always been a major part of CSADA giving back to hard working athletic directors and recognizing outstanding ADs. Conservatively, there have been 500+ section award winners in the history of our organization.

Our Newline Magazine (current copy available in the News section of this website) gives an additional avenue to pass on important information, tell meaningful stories and discuss issues with all athletic personnel—not only in California but also throughout the nation. Currently, 6,200 copies of each of three issues (November, February and June) are printed with three issues going to each school in California. One copy for the Superintendent, one for the Principal and one for the Athletic Director.

Getting some of the best speakers in the nation to present at our CSADA yearly conference has made our conference a destination for ADs and Athletic Administrators all over California.
