NDIAA announces Winter Sports All Americans

With our deep apologies for the long delay, NDIAA is thrilled to announce the results of our 5th annual Winter Sports selections. The committee spent many hours on the selection process on each sport. The time invested was well worth it, for our excellent Deaf schools and fine athletes deserve to be recognized for their hard work, dedication, and achievements. You can find the results of 2012 All Americans teams on NDIAA’s website:   


As always, the committee would like to thank the Athletic Directors and coaches for their utmost commitment to their athletes’ development, character and talent. The responses to the nomination forms has been overwhelming. We also have to recognize everyone as a winner on and off the field.

Congratulations on the accomplishments!

Minnesota hosts NDIAA convention

The conversation is likely like any other athletic director convention.

Where will the funding come from for more AEDs? What is the proper way to identify a concussion? How does ImPACT testing work?

The only difference is the only sound in this room is the rattle of the ceiling vents blasting lukewarm air. Full story.
