About the Utah High School Activities Association (UHSAA)
The UHSAA is the leadership organization for high school athletic and fine arts activities in Utah. Since 1927, the UHSAA has led the development of education-based interscholastic athletic and fine arts activities that help students succeed in their lives. The belief is these activities are an essential part of the high school experience and go a long way to improving academic performance and producing better citizens.
The UHSAA reaches 150 member schools and over 87,000 participants in high school activity programs. The organization sanctions 10 girls' sports and 10 boys' sports and music, theatre and speech/debate in five different classifications. The UHSAA is governed by a 30 member Board of Trustees made up of elected school board members and superintendents representing all regions and areas throughout Utah, principals from each of the five classifications and a state board of education representative. The organization is committed to stressing educational and cultural values, improving the participation experience in activities, promoting life skills and lessons involved in competitive activities, fostering sportsmanship and mutual respect and assisting those who oversee high school sports and activities in UHSAA member high schools.
