Co-op Team Information & Expiration Dates

Co-op Team Renewal Form - Please use this form to renew an existing co-op agreement.

In 1982, the WIAA membership approved an amendment to the Constitution, Bylaws and Rules of Eligibility permitting cooperative teams. The following language from the WIAA Official Handbook outlines rules governing the formation and approval process of cooperative teams. The WIAA contact person for cooperative team matters is Debra Hauser, Associate Director.

A. The Board of Control has authority to approve cooperative team sponsorship (one team in a given sport involving two or more member schools) under the following conditions:

1) The schools involved must be in the same geographical area.

2) The agreement for a cooperative team must specify two schools years, but that agreement may be terminated by the Board of Control for documented extenuating circumstances.

3) Applications for initial approval, or renewal of approval of a cooperative team, must include a completed and signed Cooperative Team Request Form, reflecting:

a. Approval of involved schools.

b. Approval of involved Board(s) of Education or Governing Bodies.

c. Approval of conference in which the cooperative team will participate.

4) Total enrollment of schools involved in cooperative team will determine classification of competition in WIAA tournament series.

5) Requests, for approval or dissolution, must meet the following deadline dates to be considered for the subsequent school year:

A Decade of Voluntary Membership for All Schools

Time has flown by fast; it’s hard to believe it has been more than a decade since private schools were granted the opportunity to become full members of the Association. To many now involved in interscholastic athletics in Wisconsin, it’s difficult to envision an Association that doesn’t include and embrace all high schools.

In review of the first decade, a united membership has strengthened the Association and has enhanced exposure, interest, excitement and uniformity to high school sports in our state. The independent and religious school members have been, as have the public school members, engaged and cooperative in compliance to the membership’s rules, quality hosts for membership tournaments and willing participants in the democratic process of the membership’s governance.

It may be a little-known fact, but pressure to have one comprehensive high school athletic association came more than a decade before the announcement that the former private-school association would be dissolving in 2000.

In the mid-1980s, a senator from Milwaukee expressed his motive to have joint State Tournaments. On three different occasions, legislative bills were introduced to require a combined membership. On each occasion, the former governor line-item vetoed the measure and prevented the bill from becoming law. The writing was on the wall, however. A combined membership, whether voluntary or mandated, was destiny.

A committee, formed in the mid-1990s to study the impact and adoption of the religious and independent schools into the membership, laid the groundwork for a seamless transition in the early stages of the expanded membership option beginning in 2000. That same year, open-enrollment legislation was enacted, which has lessened some of the concerns many construed to be an advantage for many privates schools and their lack of district boundaries.

Ten years later, records indicate students that are attending schools in public school districts other than where their parents reside through open enrollment exceeds the number of students enrolled at all the private schools in the membership combined. The inclusion of the private schools has increased the total number of member high schools to more than 500. That infusion of private schools precipitated a number of changes over the past decade that have addressed the impact of that increase in the membership.

There have been divisions added or increases in the number of individual or team qualifiers to the State Tournament Series events in most sports. It also brought changes in the eligibility rules. In 2006, the membership voted 269-76 to amend the transfer student language to extend the period of ineligibility for students transferring after the fourth consecutive semester to one year unless the move was necessitated by a complete move of the parents.

The most recent discussion on the placement of members into divisions has been focused on boys basketball, in particular Division 3. As recently as the Area Meetings last fall, the membership, as a whole, reconfirmed its sentiment that no segment of the membership should be treated differently in regards to divisional placement by enrollments other than what their rules already provide.

Spawned from that discussion and a directive from the Board of Control, the Executive Staff created a proposal that adds a fifth division in basketball, a sport that has not altered or increased qualifiers since adding more than 60 members a decade ago. The plan would provide acceptable enrollment ratios within divisional placements with intent to level the playing field in regards to access to the State Tournaments.

The criticisms directed at the membership regarding tournament placements are shared by a relative minority that may be attributed to misperceptions and innuendo about how religious and independent schools operate. A number of those criticisms, divisive in nature, may come from the opinions of individuals in or outside of the membership with biases not supported by facts.

Allegations of recruiting for athletic purposes, as well as granting scholarships for athletics are two of the most common. The WIAA membership has rules in place that identifies violations regarding undue influence and addresses each documented report or accusation appropriately.

As the first decade closes since the religious and independent schools joined the WIAA for the first time, we can acknowledge their commitment has broadened the diversity and quality of the collective membership. It’s apparent–we the membership–still have work to do. It is appropriate to assist in the efforts to educate staff, coaches and the general public on our philosophy and rules that govern enrollment at all our member schools.
