The Pennsylvania Independent Schools Athletic Association (PAISAA) is the recognized entity for the support of interscholastic athletic programs for independent schools in the state of Pennsylvania. PAISAA offers professional development opportunities for membership, preserves and enhances existing state events, and works to create additional state events through the development of coaches' associations for each sport. The association is committed to the foundation pillars of interscholastic athletics-integrity, sportsmanship, participation, and leadership.
PAISAA is recognized by the PIAA and is an affiliate member of the National Federation of High Schools.
Given continued fluctuations in league plans and schedules, along with the challenges, restrictions, and overall impact of Covid-19 the PAISAA executive board has cancelled the PAISAA Winter 2021 Championship events. As with our fall situation, and facing the uncertainty regarding current and future Commonwealth guidance and directives, it is not feasible to plan to stage, or stage, championships.
PAISAA leadership remains both realistic and optimistic for the spring, and has agreed that a decision on PAISAA spring 2021 championship events should be determined at a later date, as the landscape of high school sports (hopefully) gains more clarity in the coming months. A decision regarding spring championships will be made as early as possible in 2021.
