WIAA Board of Control Meeting Update

Wednesday, March 6th, 2024 -- 10:10 AM


The WIAA Board of Control approved several of the Conference Realignment Task Force recommendations for conference realignment, advanced three Constitutional amendments to the Annual Meeting, and increased tournament officials’ and State Tournament workers’ pay at its March meeting on Wednesday.  

After reviewing six appeals of the conference realignment plans recommended by the Conference Realignment Task Force, the Board approved 14 of the 20 plans and remanded seven back to the Task Force for further evaluation and consideration.  Two of the 14 approved involve conferences in our area…Elk Mound will move from the Dunn-St. Croix to the Cloverbelt-West and Osseo-Fairchild from the Cloverbelt to the Dairyland Conference.  All accepted plans will take effect in the fall of 2025.  

An increase in Tournament Series officials and State Tournament workers pay was approved by the Board. Beginning in the fall of 2024, officials’ pay will be increased $10 a game with a $.10 per mile increase for regional, sectional and State travel expenses. An analysis of State Tournament workers compensation will result in an increase in pay to a level consistent across all sports.  

Among the three amendments the Board voted to advance for a membership vote at the Annual Meeting on April 24, two impact the Bylaws. The first would allow schools to use their resources and coaches to conduct developmental programming during the school year but outside the designated sport season for students in eighth grade or below, which remains prohibited for students in grades 9-12. The second Bylaw amendment would permit member schools to submit one unedited video clip for review by the executive staff if a school believes the wrong player has been identified in an ejection and to assist in identifying the correct student-athlete to serve the ejection suspension.
