     your sport. Membership may be completed online at www.icgsa.org.  Any head varsity coach

     may nominate an athlete from his/her own team.


Completed applications and transcripts must be received by the Academic All State Chairperson by midnight of your sectional tournament entry date to be eligible for Academic All State or Honorable Mention consideration.  Incomplete nominations or nominations received after the deadline will not be considered for these honors unless the late nomination procedure is followed within 48 hours of the deadline.  Coaches who are not members by the deadline date for their sport WILL NOT have their athlete's nomination considered.  EMail or submit via online your nominations early, so they arrive before the deadline.  The Academic All-State Chairperson will acknowledge receipt of your nomination via email.     If you have not received acknowledgement by NOON on the day before your deadline, you should contact her immediately.


The 2022-23 IHSAA tournament entry deadlines and ICGSA Academic All State nomination deadlines are as listed below:

The number of athletes selected for basketball, soccer, softball, swimming, track, and volleyball will be 25.  For cross country, golf, gymnastics, and tennis that number will be 15.  Any student-athlete who has an index equal to or above 0.9, but is not in the top 25/15 lists also will be named Academic All State.  All other nominations who have met the criteria will be Honorable Mention.  The student-athlete's index does not have to be above 0.9 to be selected.  This simply accommodates the sports with more participants without penalizing those sports with lower participation numbers.
