In an ongoing effort to mitigate health risks while supporting student-athletes, the IAAM and MIAA will be delaying the start of the fall preseason until on or after Sept. 1, 2020.

At this time, the IAAM and MIAA anticipate that league play will commence on or after Sept. 21, 2020. Revised schedules will be issued to keep within the projected timeline for fall athletics.

The IAAM and MIAA will continue to reevaluate the viability of interscholastic competition for the fall season. The Board of Governors of both leagues will meet again in mid-August. Blackout periods and out of season practice policies will be waived until further notice.

The IAAM and MIAA share a common commitment to athletics as an extension of the educational process. Participation in healthy athletic practices provides student-athletes opportunities to compete, build character, acquire, and improve skills, demonstrate leadership and have fun. Both leagues hope to honor this commitment and, at the same time, keep athletes and their coaches as healthy as possible.
