Sections

The NYSPHSAA is divided into eleven sections by geographical areas.[3]

Note that the following links do not represent the NYPHSAA Sections. The following link to pages for their general, geographic areas. The official membership list is at the NYSPHSAA site.[4].

Each section is further divided into classes, by school enrollment size (AA,A,B,C,D).

Typically, each section holds a sectional championship in each sport and class. The sectional champions then meet first in regional competition, then in state competition, to determine the state champion in each class.
