Emerging Activities

The IESA Board of Directors may consider recommendations to add a new state championship or state series when a sufficient number of the member schools express interest and/or register their participation in the emerging activity. Any sport or activity for which the IESA does not conduct a state tournament series or state championship and which a member school elects to sponsor shall be considered an emerging activity.

Schools interested in participating in activities not currently offered by the IESA should register their interest by clicking on the Emerging Activity Interest Form. This form should be used to indicate your school's interest in an activity not already sponsored as an interscholastic activity by your school but offered as a club or intramural program (i.e. robotics, badminton, unified games, etc.).

Schools currently conducting a monitored emerging sport should register their participation with the IESA by clicking on the Emerging State Series Registration Form. This form should be completed by schools that are currently sponsoring as an interscholastic activity one of the monitored activities (boys soccer, girls soccer, or boys volleyball).

The IESA will utilize the interest reports to monitor the development of new activities and assist in determining when a new state championship should be considered.
