Why Join PAADS?
"Athletes are not special people – they are people with special talents. As athlete development specialists, we need to address the entire person. PAADS provides opportunities to learn and network about ways to build our skill sets
so we can fulfill our responsibilities to the athletes we serve."
- Dr. Lauren Loberg, Director of Education, NFL Player Engagement, NFL
Make an investment in yourself, your career, and your profession by becoming a member of the Professional Association of Athlete Development Specialists! Go to PAADS.org/membership and join today. Professional Membership Dues are only $95 for the year, while Student Members can join for $75.
PAADS has provided a great opportunity for me to understand, grow, and develop by networking and asking about the work of athlete development specialists with individuals already in the sports arena.

I'm so proud to have been a part of PAADS from the very beginning, and I so enjoy the Athlete Development Summit for networking, for meeting new people, and getting new ideas. I feel like I get my batteries recharged.
