Coaches Handbook 2022-2024

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 2023 – 2024 school year.

Kind regards,                                                                                            

Colleen Maguire, NJSIAA Executive Director
