Three-class soccer for Indiana

Prov state champs

Providence was an immediate beneficiary of the two-class system when introduced in Indiana in 2011, winning the Girls’ State Class A title in its inaugural year. The Pioneers will remain in Class A of a three-class structure when it commences in the fall.

New classifications released today

The Indiana High School Athletic Association last month approved adding a third class to boys’ and girls’ soccer, based on school enrollment, and today it released the new classifications.

The decision was made by the IHSAA’s executive committee (17-2) in February after 806 individuals – including principals, athletic directors, and boys’ and girls’ head coaches – were surveyed on the idea. Some 72 per cent of respondents (581) favored the additional class.

Soccer has been in a two‐class format since 2011, and was a single-class structure from 1994‐ 2010.

Last fall, 299 boys’ and 266 girls’ teams entered the state tournaments and more are expected for next season. The new sectional assignments will be announced in May.

Below you can find today’s released classifications for the next two years.
