Fall practice may begin as early as the second Thursday preceding Labor Day (i.e., August 23, 2018). No team may have more than 10 single practice sessions (i.e., "double sessions" count as two single practice sessions), through and including the Friday prior to Labor Day.

The Winter season must not begin before the first Monday after Thanksgiving.

The Spring season must not begin before the third Monday in March.

The MIAA will be partnering with Direct Athletics for all on-line entries in Cross Country, Indoor, and Outdoor Track. This process is currently being used by the MA State Track Coaches Association (MSTCA) for all meets and has worked well.

Please also see the User Guide & Help that is part of the Direct Athletics website for additional assistance and information.
