NCHSAA releases first draft of 2021-2025 conference realignment plan

Member schools may submit those concerns or suggestions to the NCHSAA through an online form by January 8th, 2021.

RALEIGH, N.C. — The NCHSAA has posted the first draft of the 2021-2025 Conference Realignment Plan. Per the Realignment Process and Procedures, the first draft is done by the NCHSAA Staff. 

Staff made significant efforts to focus on factors the Realignment Committee indicated were most important to the membership.

“The number of ‘split conferences’ in this alignment draft represents the Realignment Committee’s desire not to limit those,” said Commissioner Que Tucker. “It also takes into consideration the protection of natural rivalries and strongly considers geography and travel time. Of course, this means the way of getting into the playoffs must be reviewed and updated. That will come later.”

See the full list of proposed conferences on the NCHSAA Realignment Page.
