Tournament Alignments

For 2023-2024 and 2024-2025 Alignment Cycle

An appeal form must be completed if your school wishes to appeal the placement of your team in a proposed  2023-2024 / 2024-2025 alignment.

If you are appealing placement in more than one sport, you must complete a form for each sport.

The form must be submitted by the principal or athletic director of the school (or the host school if a cooperative team) to begin the appeal process.

All requests to opt up will be granted by submitting the form.

Requests to be placed down will only be sent on to be heard if it meets the standards for appeal and has the supporting data on the form.

Divisional placement appeals will only be granted on the following factors:
*  Participation data and trends
*  Health and safety concerns (contact sports)

NOTE: Appeals WILL NOT be granted for strength of program / wins or losses

Decisions will be final

The deadline for Spring sport alignment appeals is Friday, April 14, 2023.

The link to the Alignment Appeal form was sent via email to member school principals and athletic departments.  This link is also available in the “For Members” section.
