Sponsorship vs. Sanctioning
At the last IHSAA Board of Directors meeting there was discussion on the difference between sponsoring an activity and sanctioning an activity. The board directed me to send out some clarifying language for the two items. There have been some questions in the past on exactly what the role of the IHSAA is for baseball and state music events.
The IHSAA sanctions football, volleyball, soccer, cross country, basketball, wrestling, track, golf, baseball, softball, dance, cheer, band, choir, orchestra, debate, speech, and drama. By sanctioning, we determine that to be the rules that each activity will follow as it pertains to academic eligibility, transfers, paperwork, etc. You will find those rules in the Rules and Regulations of the IHSAA Policy Manual.
We do not however, sponsor an official state baseball tournament or any state music event. Those events are run by individual schools, coaches, or groups such as the Idaho Music Educators Association as they see fit.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the IHSAA office.
