The past five summers’ “Summer Leadership Institute” have proved to be one of the most successful professional development opportunities for athletic administrators on record. Nearly 1,200 class roster spots were filled over three days of training the past four years which assisted school leaders in our interscholastic settings.

We will again be hosting this educational event in the summer of 2021!  The Summer Institute is a collaborative project between the Ohio Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (OIAAA) and the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) and is scheduled for June 8, 9 and 10, 2021. 

The purpose of the Summer Institute is to provide appropriate training and professional development for audiences directly involved with the education-based athletic programs within Ohio schools.  Target audiences include, but are not limited to, newly appointed athletic administrators, experienced athletic administrators, coaches, building principals, superintendents and other school personnel who have a connection with school-based athletic programming.

With more and more attention being shifted toward the training and certification of Ohio athletic administrators, the Summer Institute can provide coursework credits toward RAA, CAA and CMAA certifications.  Also, additional training will be provided to ensure a more comprehensive and knowledge-based of the OHSAA governance and proactive guidance through the individual sessions.

Below are courses for our 2021 Summer Institute.  Look for specific course information and registration information coming to you this week through your OIAAA AMP account.
