About Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA)
About the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA)
Formed in 1907, the Ohio High School Athletic Association is a not-for-profit association of public and private high schools and 7th-8th grade schools. Approximately 816 high schools and nearly 760 7th-8th grade schools belong to the OHSAA, which represents over 350,000 students competing in 26 sanctioned sports (13 for boys and 13 for girls). Schools voluntarily become members of the OHSAA. The Association renders decisions on student eligibility, organizes state and regional tournaments with nearly 1.2 million fans in attendance, and manages the licensing of over 15,000 officials.
The OHSAA’s mission statement is “To serve our member schools and enrich interscholastic opportunities for students.” Its motto of “Respect the Game” places an emphasis on good sportsmanship, ethics, and integrity when it comes to how schools, coaches, athletes, and parents conduct themselves when participating in the arena of high school athletics.
The Association employs a staff of approximately 25 full-time employees at its office in Columbus and dozens of tournament and temporary workers statewide. The OHSAA is organized into si...x geographic regions called athletic districts. Each nine-member District Athletic Board assists the OHSAA in conducting sectional and district tournaments and employs a treasurer and secretary to handle administrative and financial responsibilities. The OHSAA Board of Directors is made up of nine (9) voting members representing the Districts and two (2) ex-officio members who meet monthly in Columbus.
