Quaid, Dr. James

Dr. James Quaid discusses his involvement with the Illinois High School Association (IHSA) from a variety of perspectives, including that of a student athlete, a coach, a private school principal and as a principal board member and secretary for the Illinois High School Association. He addresses the many challenges and issues that private schools face when working with the IHSA.  These issues include eligibility and transfer rules, conference affiliation (often driven by football), sources of funding, coaching availability and the expansion of non-sport activities.
