Hear from Past Attendees

“Since I just completed my first year as an Athletic Director, I found the two-day workshop very informative. Presenters were willing to supply info and answer questions. The topics were all relevant and presentations were kept to one hour, which allowed for a variety of subjects. I would recommend it to other AD's. Presenters were knowledgeable and had many years of experience as AD's.”

Phil Weiner
Athletic Director
The Calverton School

“I thoroughly enjoyed the 2022 Athletic Directors Training Camp. The sessions were full of valuable information and the presenters shared a wealth of knowledge gained from decades of experience. The opportunity to meet and learn with other athletic administrators was incredible, and our discussions throughout the three days created a new network of contacts that will undoubtedly benefit us all in the future.”

Angel Trimble
Assistant AD / Sports Information Director
Charlotte Latin School

"ADTC is a phenomenal way for young or aspiring Athletic Directors to expand their knowledge of our industry while making long lasting connections with other Athletic Directors of independent schools. Tim and his team do a wonderful job not only disseminating information, but also providing wonderful opportunities to network, engage in meaningful conversations, and have a great time while doing so!"

Matt Levin
Director of Middle School Athletics
Palmer Trinity School

“I can't even begin to describe how great this experience was both personally and professionally. Tim Green and Southern Teachers Agency ran a first-class event, and I look forward to seeing where it goes from here. Relationships built, and a lot of great takeaways!”

Wright Ward

“I am so honored to have taken part in the AD Training Camp that Southern Teachers hosted this year in Charlottesville.

Each speaker gave insightful information that showcased the ins and outs of how to better professionally and personally. In a mere 3 days, I gained a network of friends from all over the south and a greater knowledge of what it takes to always ‘be better’. “
