March enrollment isn’t up yet. Proximit6 reason to petition up. But have to win L less than a third of your games and not get far in District to petition down. No more 5a teams going to state in 4a. Some teams will have to travel.
5a isn’t losing anyone, but will gain Ridgevue in Nampa, Caldwell, both Twin Falls schools. Not aware of any new High Schools unde4 construction right now. Pocatello, Idaho Falls, Skyline and Blackfoot.
4a will lose those teams but won’t gain anyone. 3a will lose Cda Charter, gain Cole Valley Christian, Bear Lake, Kelogg and Wendell. Leaving Declo and Sun Valley Community School for volleyball and basketball in the league. Wonder what Sun Valley will do.
2a will lose the aforementioned teams and gain Liberty Charter, Victory Charter, Vision Charter and Grace.
1ad1 will lose the aforementioned teams 2a and Castleford, Carey, Gennessee, Gem State Academy, Greenleaf friends, and Centennial Baptist. To 1ad2. Some of the teams already are playing up do do proximity. 1ad1 will gain Hagerman, Council, Kendrick and Clark Fork, 1ad2 will lose the aforementioned teams but gain some earlier mentioned teams as well.
See what next count and petitioning brings.
I didn't know that IF, Blackfoot, and Pocatello had or close the numbers to be in the 5A! I knew that Skyline would. After looking at some websites concerning enrollments, I thought Hillcrest would also have the numbers to move up as well!
There has also been talk that Teton is moving up to 4A this next cycle class. That happens, then it would be the 6th and the 5th Districts combining the conference, because it would leave South Fremont and Sugar by themselves in the Upper Valley. So they would join AF, Marsh Valley, Snake River, and Bear Lake.
I believe that with Declo, they are going to have to join with the 5th District, that would have Aberdeen, Grace, Malad, Soda Springs, and West Side in the same conference. I believe they are closer to the 5th District than than they are with the 3rd District.
So, what the conference would would like:
5A- 4th & 5th District would combine conferences
4A- 5th & 6th District would combine
3A- 5th & 6th District would combine
2A 4th & 5th District would combine
That is a lot, but it's better than having 1 team conference or less.
Wanted to share, some of this I didn't know and some I did know.
