3–Year Season Calendar

Beginning with the 2020-21 school year, the IHSA will implement new state series format that will conduct all classes of  boys basketball one weekend instead of two.  In making this change, the IHSA Board of Directors will review the new format prior to the 2023-24 school year, and once future state series dates are announced, this page will be updated accordingly.
