League-wide Concussion Management Plan

Schools within the IAAM shall have a Concussion Management Plan on file to address student-athletes who exhibit signs, symptoms, or behaviors consistent with a concussion and shall be removed from practice or competition and evaluated by an athletics healthcare provider with experience in the evaluation and management of concussion.

Student-athletes suspected with a concussion shall not return to activity for the remainder of that day. Further evaluation by a Certified Athletic Trainer or physician will be needed to determine the extent of the head injury. Medical clearance shall be determined by the school, team, or treating physician, and/or athletics healthcare provider.

The IAAM recommends requiring student-athletes and their parent to accept responsibility for reporting their injuries and illnesses, including signs and symptoms of concussions, to institutional medical staff. Schools are advised to have a strong educational program in place to address the dangers of playing and participating in athletics with concussions. Administrators, faculty, athletic staff, coaches, parents, and student-athletes should be required to participate in these educational programs. (Adopted May 2011.)

IAAM HEAT ACCLIMATION POLICY

Schools within the IAAM shall have a Heat Acclimatization and Hydration Plan on file to address proper heat acclimatization as part of their Fall Preseason Practice Period. This Plan should be created and agreed upon by the Head of School, Athletic Director and the Certified Athletic Trainer and reviewed by the school’s legal counsel. There are several resources available for schools and staff, please contact the IAAM League office for further assistance. (Adopted by the Heads of School on May 15, 2013.)

IAAM Transgender POLICY

Our diverse 31 Member Schools of the IAAM share a common commitment to athletics as a key component of the educational process. We believe that athletic participation is essential to students’ physical, intellectual, social, emotional, and character development and, accordingly, we seek to allow and encourage all the students in our schools to benefit from these experiences.

The IAAM respects and acknowledges that, guided by its mission and its leadership, each member school must develop its own unique policies on athletic participation for the students under its care. On a league-wide basis, the IAAM’s policy permits students’ athletic participation in a manner that is consistent with their gender identity and that affords these students the privacy and confidentiality that all students expect from educational institutions. The school shall certify the student’s status to the IAAM by including them on the Official IAAM Team roster.

It is always the league’s expectation that all student-athletes be met with the highest degree of respect
and hospitality.

The character coin

Premise: The IAAM strongly believes that there is more to the game than just winning. There is more to learn, more to experience and more to enjoy when winning is not the sole focus in high school athletics.

IAAM Ideals: Since our inception, in 1999, the IAAM has embraced the highest ideals of fair play, integrity and respect.

The Character Coin: In an effort to put our beliefs into action, The IAAM has launched, in the Fall of 2016, The Character Coin.

Implementation: At the beginning of each season, each Varsity Head Coach will receive two IAAM Character Coins. The coach will have the opportunity to present a Character Coin to two opponents during the season, who display significant elements of fair play, integrity and respect. The Coach (or player) wishing to present a Character Coin to an opposing varsity player will inform the opponent’s Head Coach of this request after the contest. The opposing coach and the player will step forward as the “presenting” coach (and players) makes the presentation to the recipient of the IAAM Character Coin.

We Respect the Game and Each Other.
We embrace the highest ideals of fair play,

integrity and respect. We are the IAAM.

Rules and Regulations

The purpose of this organization is to provide structured and organized support for interscholastic competition for female students at member schools. To achieve this, it is the intention of this association to regard athletics and competition in the context of the educational process. The educational objectives of athletics in the IAAM include the promotion of the physical, mental, moral, social and emotional well-being for all students. The IAAM embraces the highest ideals of fair play, integrity, dignified and ethical conduct and respect for self, opponents, and officials.

The Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland values the diversity of its member schools and respects the unique qualities amongst these institutions. References to the IAAM’s Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws or rules shall mean the IAAM’s Articles of Incorporation, By-laws and rules as they may be amended from time to time.

ARTICLE ONE – CODE OF CONDUCT

It is expected that athletic program staff be an extension of their school’s philosophy and objectives. A good example will be set through behavior, attitude, and self-control in an educational setting. As we, the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland, expect sportsmanlike behavior from our schools’ athletic program staff, we also expect that of our participants and spectators. We are playing in the spirit of the game, and winning is not our only goal.

ARTICLE TWO – ELIGIBILITY OF STUDENT-ATHLETES

1. Purpose – The purpose of the eligibility rules contained herein is to uphold the objectives and standards of this Association and to provide equitable competition for the student-athletes of the member schools.

2. Eligible Students – Commencing with the date of enrollment at a member school, a full-time student, who is in good standing according to the policies of the particular member school and subject to the other limitations herein prescribed, is eligible to participate in league competitions in the IAAM. Students are considered full time and part of the school community when they take the majority of their academic classes on campus within their school, during the traditional school year. Foreign-exchange athletes who practice and play on high school teams MUST meet the criteria established by the Council on Standards for International Educational Travel (CSIET) and comply with the MPSSAA’s Standards of Competition.

3. Amateur Status – To be eligible to participate in contests of the IAAM, a student must be an amateur. As such, she may not receive, directly or indirectly, any salary, stipend, incentive, payment, financial award, gratuity, gift, educational expenses or expense allowance as a result of participation in any sport or sports team. To preserve students’ eligibility for college athletics, IAAM athletes are required to adhere to the policies for avoiding “professionalism” as defined by the NCAA.

4. Age Limitation – A student who has attained her 19th birthday before August 31 of a given academic year is not eligible to participate.

5. Limits of Participation

a. High School team members may participate in interscholastic athletic contests in a maximum of four seasons in any given sport within the 9th through 12th grades.
b. A student who has graduated from a domestic secondary education program is not eligible to participate.
c. A student may participate in two IAAM sanctioned sports per season. Written notification must be sent to the Executive Director prior to the submission of rosters for approval and tracking purposes.
d. Middle School students may not participate on junior varsity or varsity teams.

6. Migration between squad levels – Students are permitted to migrate between the varsity and junior varsity level as well as between the junior varsity and freshman squad level. Migration is intended primarily for the support of numerical make-up for JV and freshman squads; however, IAAM schools may utilize migration for the benefit of player development. Member schools should adhere to the following guidelines:

a. Member schools are permitted to designate up to six athletes for field and court sports (field hockey, lacrosse, soccer, softball, volleyball, and basketball) as athletes eligible to migrate. These athletes will be designated as “swing players.”
b. Member school must identify the swing players on the Official IAAM roster form. Rosters will be submitted to the league by the date provided. Swing players may be added throughout the season but may not exceed the stated limit of six.
c. Swing players should be listed on varsity rosters (eligible to play in JV games) and JV rosters (eligible to play on freshman squad games).
d. Swing players may play in up to 1.5 games in any given day. Any part of a quarter or a half will constitute full participation in the quarter or half. Further, swing players are not bound by game limits as set forth by the IAAM.
e. Infractions by member schools regarding the use of swing players will result in forfeiture for that contest date at the varsity, JV and/or freshman level.

Extenuating circumstance – In certain circumstances, swing players may participate in two contests on the same day. These circumstances may include a goalkeeper in soccer, field hockey or lacrosse or a pitcher in softball. These athletes must be rostered as designated swing players and advance communication should be provided to the sport chair and league commissioner

7. Transfer Students (Adopted May 2008, amended May 2011*) – Definition of a Transfer Student: A transfer student is one who changes enrollment from one school to another after high school matriculation.

Academic Year Transfer: A student-athlete may not represent two schools in athletics in the same academic year regardless of the competitive level she has participated. Therefore, any student transferring during the academic year is not eligible to participate in interscholastic athletics, at any level, during that academic year if she has participated in athletics at any level at her previous school. (“Participated” refers to physical entry into a bona fide school-sanctioned athletic contest.)

*The only exceptions to this transfer policy are (a) if a student were to change their primary residence; a change in primary residence means a move of more than 30 miles from their present residence (would include Out-of-State Boarding student) or (b) if a student’s present school eliminates the athletic program in which she is participating.

Open Enrollment Period: An Open Enrollment Period will be offered for member and non-member student-athletes. From June 1 through September 1, student athletes transferring from any member or non-member school, may transfer to and participate in interscholastic athletics, at any level, without penalty.

To qualify under this guideline, all appropriate paperwork must be completed and the enrollment contract deposit must be paid on or before September 1. The IAAM reserves the right to request copies of any enrollment contract.
The student-athlete must physically be attending classes on the first day of fall classes or by September 1, whichever is later. If the opening of the member school is after September 1, the required paperwork and deposit must be complete on or before the September 1st date.

Any student transferring from member to member school must have satisfied all financial obligations at
the previous school before participating in any interscholastic athletics, games or practices.

8. Rosters – Member Schools must submit an Official IAAM Roster form for all varsity and junior varsity teams by the dates provided by the League. Any changes to the Official League Roster must be submitted in the form of an amended roster as soon as the change occurs. Member schools must identify the swing players on the Official IAAM Roster Form by the date provided by the league. Non-rostered players may not be added after the school’s final regular season contest. Extenuating circumstances after this date may be considered.

ARTICLE THREE – RECRUITMENT

In conformity with the purpose and spirit of this Association, the following principles govern the manner
in which member schools influence and encourage a student to become affiliated with a school:

1. No school, through any of its officers, representative or by any other means, shall directly or indirectly offer inducement to a student of any school, regardless of the student’s age or academic grade, to terminate enrollment at said school and migrate to another for athletic purposes.

2. It is considered appropriate for a school’s admissions department to provide a student information about its school; however, coaches and other members of a school’s athletic department are prohibited from contacting or communicating with a student or the student’s parents/guardians until such time as an inquiry regarding the student’s possible admission to the school has been initiated by the student’s parent/guardian through the admissions department. This policy does not preclude attendance by coaches or member school representatives to non-high school athletic events for the purpose of screening prospective student athletes. On the occasion that a prospective student athlete or her parents seek information from a member school’s representative attending a non-high school event, the school’s representative may answer preliminary questions about the member school. The school’s representative should indicate to the prospective student athlete and her parents that further contact by an athletic department representative cannot be made until the admissions department at the member school is contacted by the parents.

3. IAAM schools may not initiate contact or “recruit” middle school students who are enrolled in other IAAM schools, while the students are representing their IAAM school.

4. Athletes being recruited to member school teams, who have not yet officially attended a day of class and regardless of age or grade, may not practice or participate with a member school team during the regular season. Additionally, they may not participate in any out of season practice or game which primarily involves players from the member school’s team. This does not apply to incoming 9th grade or transfer students who have signed enrollment contracts and are trying out for a fall team.

ARTICLE FOUR: OUT OF SEASON PRACTICE POLICY AND GAME LIMITATIONS

1. Out of Season Practice Policy

a. Establishment of a Start Date and Season End date: The IAAM will adhere to a designated Start Date for all sport seasons. This date will be the earliest date which will allow for tryouts, player evaluations, practices and interscholastic contests to occur. At the end of each season, a league Championship will take place. This final contest will mark the formal ending to a particular sport season. All competitions beyond the championship date must receive approval from the Executive Director.

b. Blackout Period: One week prior to the start date and two weeks after the Championship game will be considered a blackout period where player – coach workout contact is not allowed. (Exceptions to the contact rule would include post season meetings, team parties, and award ceremonies)

SeasonPreseason Blackout Period beginsStart Date
FallAugust 8, 2023August 15, 2023
WinterOctober 30, 2023November 6, 2023
SpringFebruary 13, 2023February 20, 2024

c. Out of Season Contact: School year contact (August 1 through May 31) which occurs before the start date or after the end date of a sport season (excluding the blackout period) will allow for up to two hours of coaching contact, per sport, per week. This time limit
is cumulative for all coaches per sport. Coaching contact will include any team meetings, film sessions, skill and drill oriented instruction, and open gyms. In addition, the
use of the school name, school issued uniforms and the payment of associated fees, by the school, for out of season activities are prohibited.
d. Summer Activity: June 1 through July 31 will constitute the summer. This is considered an open period.
e. Club/AAU/Travel Teams: IAAM coaches who also coach team sports at the Club/AAU/Travel level may not exceed the following number of players on their roster from the school where they coach: Field hockey=9, soccer=9, volleyball=5, basketball=4, lacrosse=10, softball=8. IAAM coaches who also coach individual sports at the Club/AAU/Travel level may work with up to 80% of the previous season’s submitted IAAM varsity roster. The “Out of Season Contact” rule does not apply to IAAM coaches who are coaching Club/AAU/Travel teams.

f. Restrictions: Any interaction by an IAAM coach with his / her players involving “out of season” contact may not be considered as a mandatory activity nor should it discourage
multi-sport participation by the athletes. It is the intent of this policy not to prevent
coaches from working with their athletes, but rather, to protect the athletes that the
coaches work with.

2. Game Limitations:
Each sport is allowed the following number of contests per season:

FALL:
Field Hockey: 18 games
Tennis: 18 matches
Volleyball: 18 matches
Cross Country: 18 meets

Each sport is allowed the following, in addition to the number of designated games:

    • Three scrimmage dates. A “scrimmage date” may involve (but is not limited to) several games i.e. play- day, one 5-day trip would equal two scrimmage dates (i.e. Spring break lacrosse trip). In a scrimmage, scores are not kept or reported by the member schools to the newspaper;
    • One in-season tournament,(i.e. Christmas basketball tournament);
    • The end-of-season Championship tournament;
    • Teams may opt to “mix and match” their scrimmages with their game schedule, never to exceed the agreed upon number of contests.

3. Videotaping
Schools, or their representatives, may videotape games, meets and matches; however the videotaping of opponent’s practices or scrimmages is a violation of IAAM policy. Infractions should be reported to the League’s Executive Director. (May 9, 2017)

ARTICLE FIVE – FORFEITURE OF CONTESTS

A member school may not arbitrarily, intentionally, and unilaterally forfeit a scheduled competition with another member school. It is the competence of the Executive Director to determine the arbitrary or intentional nature of forfeiture.

ARTICLE SIX – SANCTIONS AND PENALTIES

1. Eligibility Violations – A member school’s deliberate or inadvertent violation of the conditions of a student athlete’s eligibility will result in the forfeiture of all contests in which the ineligible student athlete participated. The Executive Director, upon the Executive Director’s own initiative or upon any member school’s initiative, will determine the eligibility status of a student athlete.

2. Membership Sanctions

  3. Before imposing any sanction set forth in clauses (a) or (b) of this Section 2, the Board of Governors must approve the sanctions by an affirmative majority vote of those members voting. The Board of Governors shall consider the following factors when determining the level of sanctions to impose upon a member school or individual team of a member school: (i) the nature of the violation; (ii) whether the violation was deliberate; (iii) whether violations were repeated; (iv) whether the member school or the individual team of the member school has previously violated the IAAM’s Articles of Incorporation, By- laws or rules or breached any agreement with the IAAM; (v) whether the member school or individual team of the member school reported its violation to the IAAM; (vi) whether the member school or individual team of the member school was cooperative with the IAAM in investigating its violation; and (vii) whether the member school or individual team of a member school imposed its own sanctions.

3. Expulsion – A member school may be expelled from participation in the IAAM for serious, deliberate or repeated violations of the terms of the IAAM’s Articles of Incorporation, By-laws or rules.

4. Suspension


a. A member school or an individual team of a member school may be suspended from participation in the IAAM for:

1) Non-payment of dues;
2) Unsportsmanlike conduct on the part of the athletic director, coaches or student athletes;

5) Granting of non-need based financial aid for athletics;
6) Additional violations during a term of probation;
7) Violations of the eligibility rules as set forth in Article One of these rules;
8) Such other violations of the IAAM’s Articles of Incorporation, By-laws and rules as the Board of Governors determines in its discretion.

b. Suspension from the IAAM shall be for a term of one-year commencing at the start of the next sports season. During the term of suspension any games in which the suspended member school or suspended individual team of a member school was already scheduled are forfeited to the opponent team; for a season not yet scheduled, the suspended member school or suspended individual team of a member school is omitted from the schedule.

5. Probation

a. A member school or individual team of a member school may be placed on probationary status for:

1) Non-payment of dues;
2) Unsportsmanlike conduct on the part of the athletic director, coaches or student athletes;
3) Playing in a game or contest against a suspended member school or a suspended
individual team of a member school;
4) Violation of the rules governing recruitment of student athletes;
5) Violations of the eligibility rules as set forth in Article One of these rules;
6) Such other violations of the IAAM’s Articles of Incorporation, By-laws and rules as the Board of Governors determines in its discretion.

b. A member school or individual team of a member school shall be placed on probationary status for a term of one-year commencing at the start of the next sports season.

7. Reprimand – The Board of Governors may also issue an official letter of reprimand to a member school or individual team of a member school for a violation of the IAAM’s Articles of Incorporation, By-laws and rules.

8. Sanctions by Agreement – As a supplement to the sanctions set forth above, the Executive Director shall have the discretion to consider and recommend to the Board of Governors such other or alternative sanctions as may be proposed by the applicable member school (“Agreement”) and the Board of Governors shall have the discretion to consider and approve or not approve any such proposed Agreement; provided that neither the Executive Director, nor the Board of Governors, shall be obligated to consider, negotiate, approve or enter into any Agreement. In the event that the IAAM and a member school shall enter into an Agreement, the member school’s failure to comply with the terms of the Agreement shall be deemed an independent violation of these rules.

9. Ejection Rule – Any player or coach who is ejected for any reason from a game or contest, is automatically suspended from participating in a minimum of one game or contest, commencing with the team’s next regularly scheduled game or contest. Individual member schools may impose heavier penalties. It is the responsibility of the Athletic Director to enforce this rule and to notify the Executive Director of the ejection and subsequent suspension.

10. Fines – Schools not represented or excused from any monthly general meetings could be liable for a fine of $100. Schools not represented by the proper administrator at the association’s business meetings will be fined $100.

IAAM All-Conference SELECTION PROCESS

The IAAM defines All-Conference Selections as a varsity athlete who has displayed a combination of exemplary skills, performance, and sportsmanship in that IAAM sport.

  1. Approximately two weeks before the end of the regular season an electronic form will be sent from the Executive Director to each participating Athletic Director and Head Coach.
  2. On this form, coaches are encouraged to select players from their own team who they feel should receive consideration as a Conference All-Conference. The number of nominations from any school will be limited to the number on the form. (5 for all team sports, except basketball, 4).
  3. Coaches will nominate their players by name, position and number. There will be a short space for comments for each individual nominee. Coaches may choose to briefly state reasons why an individual player should be considered. Nomination should be (or is) based solely on the players’ conference/interscholastic play/ performance.
  4. Players who are not on the “league issued” ballot are not eligible for the IAAM All-Conference Team.
  5. Nomination forms must be emailed by the due dates listed above from the school’s Athletic Director to the League’s Executive Director no later than the indicated due date. If a school has no candidates, nomination forms still must be submitted.
  6. Schools who fail to submit their nominations or ballots in the required time frame will not be eligible for consideration.
  7. A composite of the nominees will be created and a ballot will be sent back to the coaches of each individual school. Coaches may not vote for their own players on these ballots.
  8. All-Conference Selections will be chosen from these ballots. Team sports will reflect 1.5 times the number of starters for the sport (rounding “up” when necessary) with no sport having less than 10 All-Conferences.
  9. Coaches or a School Representative should be present to attend the post-season meeting and to take the opportunity to speak about each of the school’s nominations before coaches vote however schools will have until 10:00 a.m. the following morning to submit their ballots. There will be a $100.00 fine for those not in attendance at the post-season meetings.
  10. Each vote will count as one point per athlete. In the case of a tie between three or less athletes, those athletes will be selected as All-Conference. If four or more athletes are tied, there will be a re-vote with the names of the players who tied. The re-vote will continue until the tie is broken.
  11. All-Conference teams will be announced via email the days following the post season meeting.

      a. On a shot, the shooter may follow through with their stick over the goal circle; however, the shooter’s feet must not touch the goal circle. The shooting motion must be initiated from outside the goal circle.
      b. On a shot, the player(s) directly defending the shooter may reach into the goal circle with their stick(s) to block the shot or check the shooter’s stick.
      c. Players on the defending team in their defensive end of the field may run through any portion of the goal circle while defending. Only the defensive player who is directly marking the ball carrier within a stick’s length may remain in the goal circle while defending.
      d. Players on the defending team in their defensive end of the field may run through or remain in the goal circle when their team is in possession of the ball.

    4. Playing the current rules with the addition of the possession clock. There MUST be a visible possession clock to see the 90 second possession. Two possession clocks are best so both teams can visibly see the time at both ends. Varsity games would continue to be two – 25-minute halves with 7–10-minute halftime. The game clock for playing time will continue to run but the possession clock on set ups in the Critical Scoring Area will be stopped. This will enhance the flow of the game.

    Goalkeeper Equipment:
    The goalkeeper must wear a helmet with face mask, and properly secured chinstrap, a separate throat protector, padded gloves, a mouthpiece, a chest protector and padding on thighs.
    Shin protection may be worn that complies with the padding requirement.

    b. Shot on goal by the team with possession that hits a pipe or rebounds off a save and the team who shot the ball has retained possession.
    c. Change of possession.
    d. Reset on a card – new 90 seconds

    e. Offsides – new 90 seconds
    *Shot on goal – for purposes of this rule, the ball must be released from the shooter’s stick prior to the expiration of the 90 second possession clock. Shots that go wide of the pipes or above the crossbar do not reset the 90 second possession clock.

    Administration Following 90 Second Possession Clock Violation
    If the 90 second possession clock expires before any of the above occurs:
    a. Sound the horn once and blow the whistle immediately.
    b. Award a free position to the opposing team at the spot of the ball within the playing area at the time of the violation.
    c. Any player from the team awarded the free position that is on the field of play at the time of the whistle for the 90 second possession clock violation, may take the free position.
    d. No player may be closer than 2 meters to the free position.
    e. If the ball is in the air at the time of the violation, the free position is administered 2 meters from the boundary.
    f. If the ball is within 2 meters of the out of bounds, the free position is administered 2 meters from the boundary.
    g. If the ball is out of bounds at the time of the violation, the free position is administered relative to the spot where the ball went out of bounds.
    h. The player taking the free position may self-start.

    5. NCAA rule of Cross Check for the VARSITY LEVEL GAMES. Cross Check: Initiating stick-to-body contact and using the shaft of the stick to hit, push or displace an opponent. Officials will card forceful stick-to-body contact to an opponent’s head, neck, shoulders and back.
    *When playing any MPSSAA school the US Lacrosse/NFHS rules will have to be played.
    *Fee for the officials will remain the same with the possession clock being stopped but not the game clock.

    6. Penalty Administration for Mandatory Card Fouls. A mandatory card foul results in the issuance of a yellow or red card. A yellow card may be a two-minute releasable or non-releasable. The IAAM will move to a releasable yellow card for the Spring 2023 Season. Acknowledging that the fourth and subsequent card received will force the two-minute, full penalty. The team would play down for only the two-minutes, and not the remainder of the game. (NCAA Rule) The total team count would include both yellow and red cards, not green cards. A red card is always a two-minute non-releasable penalty with the team playing short. The issuance of cards should be considered a warning to all players. The penalty for the cardable offenses must be served during elapsed playing time, which would carry over to the second half or overtime, is necessary. If the half or game, which goes into overtime, ends prior to the administration of the free position, the second half or overtime will begin with a free position at the center for the non-offending team. Player positioning for the draw shall not apply. No player may be within 2 meters of the player taking the free position. Play will commence on the official’s whistle.
