Franklin, MA – March 2021 – Team IP is excited to announce it has extended its partnership with Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association. MIAA has a long-standing history with Team IP. The partnership first started in 2010 and has run continuously through the years.

They strive to promote activities that provide lifelong and life-quality learning experiences to students while enhancing their achievement of educational goals.
State championships will return to MIAA this spring after a solid year of canceled seasons due to the pandemic. It will be the first full slate of state championships since the 2019 fall season. The basketball and hockey state finals from the 2019-20 winter season were scrapped because of the pandemic, the entire 2020 spring and fall season was also canceled. To date, there have been no MIAA playoffs of any kind this school year.
Team IP is eager to return to Massachusetts for the spring sports which include baseball, softball, boys and girls lacrosse, boys and girls tennis, boys volleyball, girls golf, rugby, boys and girls outdoor track and field, sailing, and crew. Wrestling is usually a winter sport but has been shifted to the spring this year as well.
