OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE 

April 2, 2020 

After collaborative discussion and a great deal of consideration, the members of the IIAAG Board of Directors for both middle and high schools have decided to cancel all of the league’s interscholastic sports activities for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. This was a very difficult decision obviously influenced by the COVID-19 public threat and corresponding government mandates prohibiting social gatherings. 

The fundamental mission of the IIAAG is to provide and help facilitate Fair and Safe interscholastic sports competition. Our community is facing an adversary that is bound by no rules and has proven to adversely affect human life. Sadly, this rapidly escalating situation prevents our organization from facilitating a safe interscholastic environment. We truly sympathize with all of our student/athletes who are being affected by this crisis, most especially the graduating Seniors who will not have the opportunity to enjoy some final memories in high school sports. 

Despite schools remaining closed and activities cancelled, there is still work to be done and the members of the IIAAG have agreed to conduct our monthly meetings via remote online methods. Any questions or concerns are welcome and should be communicated through a student/athlete’s respective Athletic Director and/or representing Administrator to the IIAAG Board.
