Football Classification and Redistricting--A meeting for parents/players/interested community members
Every two years, the Iowa High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) reviews football classifications based on Iowa school district enrollment in grades 9 through 11. This year, the State of Iowa has seen the most forfeits and cancellations of programs that it has ever dealt with; however, the IHSAA committee was committed to maintain one class of 8-man football and five classes of 11-man football in Class A, 1A, 2A, 3A, and 4A through 2018 – 2020. The IHSAA committee understands that this is a two-year commitment and that the ability to maintain 5 classes of 11-man football will be evaluated again in the fall of 2019. During this meeting, the committee determined that the enrollment cap for 8-man would increase from 115 students in grades 9 through 11 to 120. New London currently has 115 students in grades 9 through 11, and for this reason, we identified a process that will provide all stakeholders an opportunity to listen and share their thoughts about the consideration of 8-man football. Here is the process:
1. Athletic Director & Superintendent meet with the Head Football Coach
2. Athletic Director & Superintendent meet with all High School Football Coaches
3. Took all active football players in grade 8 through 12 to the 8-man championship game
4. Athletic Director & Superintendent met with all 8 through 11 grade players by class
5. Hold a player/parent meeting to provide information and answer questions on November 21, 2017 @ 6:00 in the HS Auditorium
6. (TBD) Board Work Session (Take a close look at all the information)
If you are interested, please attend the player/parent/community meeting on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 at 6:00 in the MS/HS Auditorium. ... See MoreSee Less
