District Athletic Committee

The Board of Directors delegates to the DISTRICT ATHLETIC COMMITTEES the supervision of athletics and the adjudication of protests, disputes, conflicts or controversies within their districts. They also serve as the Nominating Committee of the Association, and directly appoint a principal and athletic director to each MIAA Sport Committee.  They control the alignment or realignment of Leagues, approve all co-operative and middle school on high school team’s requests within their districts, and play an important role in the Rule Change Process, given that they have the opportunity to review all input on each rule before recommending a position to the Board of Directors.  District Committees will also have the responsibility of approving requests within their districts of co-operative teams looking to add Middle School participation in one or more of their co-operative teams.  The Board of Directors or Executive Director may request them to “fact find” or to conduct hearings with regard to alleged rule-violations.  That authority also permits District Athletic Committees to determine and enforce appropriate penalties.
