MIAA COVID-19 Task Force

The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) is pleased to announce the formation of the MIAA COVID-19 Task Force Sub-Committee.  Under the leadership of MIAA President Jeffrey Granatino, Task Force members were appointed and charged to determine appropriate measures for a safe return to MIAA athletics in alignment with guidelines set forth by Governor Baker, MA Department of Health (DPH) and MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE).

Educational athletics is foundational to the core values and mission of the MIAA.  The belief that educational athletics is integral to the holistic development of our students and their high school experience is central to the work, thinking and decision making of this working group.
