No decision on Fall Sports has been made yet. There are many factors and scenarios being discussed by local school districts and the MIAA, but both groups are waiting for an official announcement/decision/direction from the Govenor's Office, EEA and DESE before we can inform our community on what will be happening with sports.
We have not released any dates for tryouts, registration information or anything of that nature and will not until we hear the official announcement from the Governor.
If you have any questions please do not hestitate to email Mr. Serino (firstname.lastname@example.org)

For additional pertinent information regarding the spring sports please see the highlights below:
The Board put forth a request to the TMC to submit a tournament structure recommendation(s) to the Board by April 9, 2020. The Board will meet at a later date, not yet determined, to review.
From the MIAA: "In light of Governor Baker’s March 25, 2020 mandate that all schools remain closed until May 4th, the status of spring sports will be addressed by the Board of Directors on a March 30th conference call and an immediate update will be provided to the membership.
Among TMC recommendations to the Board is that if there is a spring season start date of after April 27th, there will not be an MIAA tournament. This recommendation, as well as a plan to save a spring season for MIAA student-athletes will be the substance of a March 30th Board meeting.
This recent news from the Governor is surreal. The MIAA will continue to monitor this fluid situation and provide updates regarding spring sports as soon as they are made available. Thank you all for your flexibility, understanding and patience. Support and guidance to our schools, student-athletes and to you, our membership, is priority during this uncertain time."
the MIAA Board of Directors voted to have completion of regular season and tournament games by June 20, 2020 with consideration of June 21, 2020 for weather and facility needs.
Details regarding the structure of the spring season will be addressed by the Tournament Management Committee (TMC). An update will be provided and reviewed by the Board by March 25, 2020.
These decisions are based on available information and are made in the best interest of our student-athletes, schools and communities. These decisions will be revisited and adjusted as needed.
Thank you for your patience while dealing with this very fluid situation. Be well.
The MIAA Board of Directors extended the delay to the start of the 2020 Spring season to April 27th. Respecting the fluidity of this situation, this decision will be revisited in the near future.
