- The form must be accompanied by a rationale for why the deadline was not met; and
- The form, fine and rational submission must be copied to the school principal
- NO forms will be accepted after the exclusion competition date or the season's schedule commitment date, whichever is earlier.

To enable the following schools to fill their schedules, the MIAA allows other member schools to schedule contests with:
Barnstable, Bishop Feehan, Bishop Stang, Boston College High School, Bridgewater-Raynham, Brockton, Catholic Memorial, Coyle and Cassidy, Dartmouth, Durfee, Fontbonne, Malden Catholic, Marshfield (for the 2018-19 and the 2019-20 school year), Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Nauset, New Bedford, Notre Dame (Hingham), St. John's Prep (D), Ursuline, and Xaverian
with the option of choosing not to include these contests toward tournament qualification and seeding under the following parameters.
A. Member schools (that are NOT exclusion schools) may exceed the maximum number of seasonal competitions by two and exceed the weekly limit by one, when scheduling contests with the schools listed. All games may count toward tournament qualification if desired.
1. The exclusion form MUST BE submitted for games against any of the listed school to NOT COUNT toward tournament qualification
2. If games versus exclusion school are to be counted towards the seeding record, it is not necessary to submit the exclusion form.
3. If an exclusion form is submitted, the decision is final and the game will not count. This decision may not be changed.
B. These contests will count for the schools listed, and therefore must be included on the "Season Schedule and Commitment Form" submitted to the Tournament Director. Schools must indicate on the Schedule and Commitment Form if games WILL NOT count toward Tournament qualification.
C. If playing an Exclusion School that is part of your league schedule, you MUST count the game. You cannot exclude league contests vs. Exclusion Schools.
Regarding Exclusion Schools:
1. Exclusions schools may play each other --- at least one of the schools must count the game towards tournament qualification, as long as they are not in the same league. If they are in the same league, they both must count the game.
2. Exclusion schools CANNOT exceed the season scheduling limitations for the sport.
3. All League games MUST be counted.
