The 6 divisions in VA have broken my heart.
The state athletic association in Virginia is just like the one in many states and that is they are a joke! Now we all must remember a few things:
1. The state associations are multi million dollar organizations that are operated by educators that have little if any business expertise.
2. Most all of the state associations are not equally represented and are tilted to the public school side
3. It's all about making their contemporaries happy and by having more state championships more people leave the event happy.
4. The attendance is better with more student athletes competing for more state championships. By increasing attendance the state association takes in more money and are able to justify paying themselves more money.
5. It has nothing to do with what is best for the various sports.
6. The state association executives have little if any experience in advertising and promotion
7. All state championships in each and every sport in all states should be funded by selling advertising. By doing this all the gate money and parking should be profit.
