IAAM Fall 2020 Sports Announcement

Please see the statement that was released by the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland regarding Fall Sports for the 2020-2021 school year.

"Official Release dated:  Friday, July 17, 2020

A Joint Statement on IAAM/MIAA Fall Interscholastic Sports  

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 Tuesday, September 1, 2020.

At this time, we anticipate that league play will commence on or after September 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 our 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."
