Districts and regions to be finalized for next classification cycle

November 10, 2020

The TSSAA Board of Control will meet on Thursday, November 12 at Siegel High School at 9:00 a.m. CST.

At their most recent meeting in August, the Board voted on the number of classes in each sport in Division I and Division II for the next two-year cycle.

The biggest change seen in the structure of classification was the Board voting to go from three classes to four in Division I in the sports of basketball, baseball, and softball. The Board voted to continue to bring eight teams to the state tournament in each of the three sports. Districts and regions for the 2021-2023 classification cycle were set on November 5. The Board will hear appeals from schools wishing to make a change to their placement.

Among other items, the Board will also review the financial reports for 2020 fall sports, bid packet information for football, golf, girls’ soccer, and Spring Fling, as well as membership requests from two schools.

The meeting will be held in the Lecture Hall at Siegel High School with all physical distancing requirements being enforced. No one will be allowed to enter the facility without wearing a mask. Maintaining the minimum 6-foot distance and wearing a mask at all times will be mandatory. There will be limited seating, but best efforts will be made to accommodate those individuals in attendance.

The agenda for the meeting is below.
