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.
On 8/10/20 the PAISAA Executive Board voted unanimously to cancel all PAISAA Fall 2020 Championship events. Given recent decisions by individual schools and collective leagues, along with the uncertainty regarding Commonwealth guidance and directives, it is not feasible to plan to stage and execute championship events and tournaments. The Board also announced that a decision on the PAISAA winter 2021 championship events should be determined at a later date, as the landscape of high school sports gains more clarity. A target for this decision is November 1, 2020.
PAISAA dues for the 2020-2021 are due by October 1, 2020.
