Ad Hoc Middle Level Athletics Committee

UPDATE: August 15, 2023
At the 2023 Summer Institute, the membership unanimously voted to change the constitution of the Massachusetts School Administrators’ Association. Specifically, the Board of Directors is going to be elected from nine regions from around the state. This change is to ensure geographic representation as well as school-level representation. The first Board of Directors meeting will be held following the elections this Fall and is anticipated to be held in October. At this meeting, committees will be discussed. More information will be posted as it becomes available.

Middle Level Athletics Mission

The Middle Level Athletic Committee (MLAC) of the Massachusetts Secondary School Administrators’ Association (MSAA) is the official organization in
Massachusetts for regulating and conducting athletic events and contests among middle level schools.  MLAC is responsible for enforcement
