Game Exclusion Information

Just a reminder that in the new statewide tournament qualification and seeding all games count (including exclusion games—not including endowment games) There is no longer need for a game exclusion form so that document has been removed from the site.

See July 1, 2023 thru June 30, 2025 MIAA Handbook language below:

MIAA Rule 34.1.2 Game Exclusion Notice: Member Schools may exceed the maximum number of seasonal competitions by two and exceed the weekly limit by one, when scheduling contests with the approved exclusion schools. Excluded schools are only allowed to play the maximum number of seasonal competitions and may compete against each other. All game exclusion contests will count in tournament qualification and ranking/seeding system.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Greater Boston League (GBL) schools will be removed from the ‘Approved Exclusion’ list at the end of the 2023-24 school year, per their request. The schools include Everett, Malden, Medford, Revere and Somerville.
