The Wyoming High School Activities Association (WHSAA) is the organization that runs and regulates all interscholastic high school activities in the U.S. state of Wyoming. The WHSAA was founded in the 1920s to regulate athletic competition between Wyoming's high schools. The organization has since grown to assist other interscholastic activities such as drama and music.
The WHSAA divides schools based upon enrollment of grades 9, 10, 11 and 12 for competition and state and regional championships. For most sports including football, basketball, and volleyball schools are divided in one of four classes, 4A, 3A, 2A, or 1A. The schools having the highest enrollment are put into class 4A and those with lower enrollment are put in other classes. In other sports like soccer and swimming, there are only two classes, 4A and 3A, while in golf, cross country and wrestling there are three classes, 4A, 3A, and 2A. For other sports, including tennis, indoor track and skiing, there are no classes.
Many of the championships for sports activities are held in one central place, while other are held in different locations and these change from year to year. Championship events that are held in one central location include the following.
The WHSAA classifies its activities into athletic and non-athletic events.
