The number one "policy and programs" priority identified in VHSL's current 5-year Strategic Plan (adopted May 2, 2007) is to "Enhance district, region and state events, venues and experiences for all participants." As a part of this initiative, staff was directed to investigate and implement options that would "create a positive, 'big time,' special atmosphere for VHSL events."
To that end, VHSL has established facilities requirements and a bid process to be used by schools, institutions, or organizations that may wish to host one or more VHSL State Championship events. Additionally, there is an establish region rotation for events to be used in the event no bid is received. The rotation is a back-up plan to be used ONLY when no appropriate bid is received.
VHSL sponsors championships in 17 sports and 5 academic activities. More than 200,000 students participate in VHSL programs. Hosting a VHSL Championship can be an exciting and rewarding experience for the host community. We encourage you to review the facilities requirements and, if your facility meets or closely approximates those requirements, submit a bid for consideration.
