The purpose of the North Carolina Association for Athletic Education (NCAAE) is to provide learning experiences for athletic educators, which will assist them in attaining and maintaining the knowledge and skills to provide optimum athletic education for their students.
In addition to providing top quality conference programming at the NCAAHPERD-SM annual convention, the NC Athletic Education Association joins with the NC Coaches Association to offer Middle School Monday Coaching Development Sessions at the annual North Carolina Coaches Clinic. This is a full day of sessions geared specifically toward middle school coaches. Even so, high school coaches are also welcome!

NCAAE awards are presented at the NCAAHPERD-SM Convention in October! Come and join us as we honor our award winners! We are very proud of them, and we know you will be too!
Nominations and applications for NCAAE awards are accepted at all times of the year, however, the deadline is July 1 of the current year. Nominations or applications made after that date will be considered for the following year.
Please take a minute to think of coaches and athletic directors you feel are deserving of recognition.
