Athletic Administrators consistently contribute the longest days among staff members in most American school districts. The second work day begins when the regular school day ends, and what has been planned, organized and implemented by the athletic administrator, goes into action. Whether an athletic administrator, assistant principal in charge of athletics, athletic director, coordinator, liaison or supervisor; there is a delicate balance among profession, personal time, and family, as the ‘AD’ provides student participation opportunities within education based athletic programs.
