Athletic Directors, along with coaches, will be on the front lines when it comes to executing the Life of an Athlete program. ADs need to define clear expectations and support coaches in their efforts to be effective.

ADs are in a position to effectively support the program because they have various resources at their disposal, working closely with school administrators including superintendents and principals. This allows ADs to influence expectations and create a supportive environment, accessing resources and funding to help the program succeed.
