The FinalForms team is thrilled to share some exciting news with you – we are delighted to announce a strategic partnership with the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association! This collaboration represents a significant step forward in our shared commitment to elevating education-based athletics.
As the 2023 National Athletic Directors Conference approaches, there are many upcoming opportunities to take advantage of. Athletic Directors should consider engaging in NIAAA (National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association) Leadership Training Courses for several important reasons:
In addition to the holiday season, it’s also the “Conference Season”! High School Athletic Directors should consider attending the National Athletic Directors Conference for a variety of reasons, as it can offer numerous benefits for their personal and career development.
Here are some compelling reasons to attend such conferences:
Your season is going well. Your coaches are fired up about the postseason. This is surely going to be a banner year for your athletic program. But wait… what if… a coach has a medical incident, a parent questions staff conduct, or the state inquires about your compliance with a recent regulation?
Do you have forms in place that distribute medical information to the right hands at the right time?
Do you have a time-stamped paper trail of staff signatures on key departmental documents?
Do you have proof-positive compliance with state regulations?
It’s Fall Sports season. You’ve got your rosters. You’ve got your participation numbers. You’ve got a certified coaching staff. All is well, right?
As your busier-than-ever coaches review their rosters and as your athletes take a moment to meet their teammates, they notice something isn’t quite right… in fact, someone isn’t out for the team. Even worse, it might be tough to contact that athlete and it might be too late to add them to the roster.
So, how can you identify and contact athletes that were rostered last year, but not this year? Simple. FinalForms “filters” help you retain athletes and increase participation year after year.
As a coach, one of your responsibilities is to watch over your athletes at practice. In the past if a student was missing from practice what would happen? Most likely, they’d get marked absent on a sheet of paper. Then mom or dad would show up two hours later only to find that their child was not at practice. Sounds like a liability issue in the making, right?
With FinalForms attendance mode, coaches not only have the ability to mark their athletes' attendance but also to prompt the parent(s) or guardian(s) if their child is missing in real time. Data in the right hands, at the right time, ensures everyone has the most accurate information and students are kept safe.
If you're thinking of making the move that thousands of Athletic Directors have already made, you're in good company. Why? It's far easier than you think.
"I told parents to contact me if they had any troubles or questions. Not one parent called me," claims Mike Quinn, CMAA, Athletic Director at Lakewood High School in Michigan, "You don't have to be tech savvy. FinalForms runs itself."
Mike Quinn, CMAA, says the transition is a "No-Brainer"(2:25)

As an administrator, is your athletic department still missing equipment? Do you find yourself having to replace gear each school year? Not only does it cost money, it costs additional time and effort to track down all of your missing equipment.
As a team of former coaches and administrators, we've been in your shoes. That's why we created the equipment feature. The equipment feature allows you to issue out gear to athletes as well as collect gear at the end of each season or school year.
