Why GADA?

As an organization, its strength and value is derived directly from its members. Being a member opens many doors of opportunity. They include but are not limited to training programs, attending the annual conference, communicating, mentoring and learning alongside your peers from around the state and beyond. The GADA is making great strides to improve our organization. Your membership in both the GADA and the NIAAA will help ensure that you receive the valued benefits and have the ability to make a greater impact with your coaches, administration and most of all your student-athletes.
