The Open Date Proposal as Accepted by the MIAA Board of Directors
An open date (as opposed to scrimmages or jamborees) where teams can compete in a pool play format with a number of different teams on one day. The maximum number of 25 point games allowed in one day would not exceed 15.
These open dates would only take place on weekends.
Volleyball teams would be allowed to play up to two open dates. Each open date played would result in one less contest opportunity from the current 20 contest limit.
Open dates would not count towards the win-loss record of teams for MIAA tournament qualification.
- Would allow more student athletes to participate
- Would raise the level of play and create more competitive opportunities
- Would open geographical and cross divisional play
