Message from Colleen Maguire - NJSIAA Executive Director
“A good coach can change a game. A great coach can change a life.” -John Wooden
On behalf of the NJSIAA staff, I want to personally thank you for coaching our student-athletes. Education-based athletics is more than wins and losses, it is an opportunity to teach lifelong lessons that play an integral role in the development of today’s student-athletes.
We all have fond memories of our high school sports playing days. We all owe it today’s student-athletes to provide them with the same opportunities to create their own fond memories. Providing a positive experience and modeling sportsmanlike behavior are your primary responsibilities.
The lifelong lessons that are to be learned by participating in education-based athletics will encourage today’s student-athletes to pay it forward to the next generation of student-athletes.
Thank you for your playing your part and best of luck during the 2022 – 2023 school year.
Colleen Maguire, NJSIAA Executive Director
