In an effort to provide you with relevant, timely information, the WIAA has launched a new initiative which consists of providing you with short videos regarding specific topics that will be posted throughout the year. We believe that this will help us communicate with our members in a more efficient manner and alleviate the number of e-mails that are sent to AD’s, coaches, officials, by our Association. We are excited to offer you an opportunity to hear updates from the WIAA staff, in short video form. We hope that you will be an active participant in this new initiative and stay up to date on information being shared from the WIAA. Here is some information to get you started!
WIAA Extra Points
