The IHSA uses the same rules that the National Federation of High Schools uses to ensure each game is played fairly and that both teams can compete while following the same rulebook. Postseason Tournaments Many high school sports leagues in Illinois conduct postseason tournaments to determine champions. Seeding in those tournaments is based on regular-season standings. However, if your team is tied in the standings at the end of the year, the following tiebreakers are used to determine higher seeding in the following order: head-to-head wins; fewest runs allowed in league games; most runs scored in league games. However, once a manager takes his pitcher off the mound, the pitcher cannot return to the mound even if he has not left the game.

View a map or email us The purpose of the Illinois High School Association is to provide leadership for the development, supervision and promotion of good sportsmanship in interscholastic competition and other activities in which its member schools choose to engage.
Participation in such interscholastic activities offers eligible students experiences in an educational setting which provide enrichment to the educational experience. Our Mission Statement The IHSA governs the equitable participation in interscholastic athletics and activities that enrich the educational experience. History Founded on December 27, , the Illinois High School Association is a private, not-for-profit organization with more than member high schools in Illinois.
The IHSA is headquartered in Bloomington, Illinois, and is not funded by tax dollars or administered by the government in the state of Illinois. Each Board member represents a geographic division in the state after being nominated and then elected in a vote by other principals in that division.
The IHSA staff administers the state tournaments in all IHSA sanctioned activities and sports, including the selection of State Series sites, assignment of officials and on-site state final management. The staff is responsible for the education and enforcement of the by-laws that its member schools vote into existence. A committee of Athletic Directors provides feedback on each recommendation to give the Board of Directors feedback from several groups before they cast the deciding vote.
Any member school can propose a new by-law or a change to an existing by-law. The proposed changes are then reviewed for all IHSA member schools at mandatory Town Hall Meetings held at 28 different high schools throughout the state each November. The Legislative Commissioners then vote on whether each proposal should appear on an all-school ballot based on the feedback of the member schools that attend their Town Hall Meetings.
The proposals that are moved forward by the Legislative Commission are voted on by every member school and must have a simple majority to become a by-law.
Girls may compete on boys teams under certain circumstances. Wrestling and football are the boys sports with the most female participants. Boys may not compete on girls teams except in Competitive Cheerleading and Competitive Dance. Each official who receives reimbursement for officiating a contest between member schools must be registered with the IHSA. Athletic officials are required to attend rules meetings each year to learn the rules, officiating techniques and skills necessary to provide for the proper conduct of interscholastic competition between school squads.
Many also attend clinics during the year. It contains pages for every IHSA athletic and non-athletic activity, real time scoring for most state final tournaments, the Officials Department, and many other pages.
