Athletes to get a taste of HIADA

Before the state’s decision makers get down to serious business at the Hawaii Athletic Directors Association meeting at Hilton Waikoloa Village in June, they hope to see some of the athletes they are working for getting their own development.

The HHSAA is looking for the state’s best and brightest to attend its first Student-Athlete Leadership Conference June 6-7 in Kona. HIADA sessions will be going on at the same time, but the real business doesn’t begin until later in the week.

Ann Meyers Drysdale will be the featured speaker at the leadership conference, showing student-athletes how they can set themselves up for success.

Drysdale was the first woman inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame and broke many other barriers in her long career, which is currently being spent as a broadcaster for the Phoenix Suns and vice president of the Phoenix Mercury.
