Class 1A and 2A All-District Selection Meetings - Sunday, July 12th @ 1:00 pm - these will be "zoom" meetings ran by your district chairman

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the continued increasing cases of the virus in Iowa, the 2020 IHSBCA All-District meetings for all four classes will be held through "zoom" meetings.  I have listed below each classes district chairman, with his email address.  Please notify your chairman that you will or will not be attending the meeting.  In return, your district chairman will send you the Zoom link and password needed to enter the meeting on Sunday.  

Please check your district membership list, which is found on the right side of this page under the bulletin board, to see if you/school have a paid membership for this year.  If you have not paid for this year, you must notify Lee Toole and make arrangements to pay your membership.  School/coaches who have paid for this membership year are highlighted in yellow on the list.

Please help notify everyone in your district on how we are doing the all-district meetings this year.  If you have any questions, please contact Lee Toole or your District Chairman.

Media release - July 3rd, 2020 - IHSBCA Jr Showcase - Cancelled for this year

Due to the increase and spike in COVID-19 cases throughout the state, the Iowa Jr. Showcase scheduled for August 2nd at SE Polk HS, has been cancelled for 2020.  All nominations will be given to coaches/scouts that regularly attended our showcase.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and feel for the athletes/coaches that this affects, however the safety of all parties involved is our top priority.  We plan to continue this event in 2021 with a tentative showcase date of August 1, 2021.

6/5/20 - IHSBCA JUNIOR SHOWCASE - Cancelled for this year

First off, thank you for nominating your player as a possible selection for this year's showcase for the TENTATIVE date of August 2nd, 2020 @ Southeast Polk High School.  At this time we are taking nominations for the 2020 Iowa Jr Showcase, however with so much uncertainty, the FINAL DECISION HAS NOT been made to host this event. We have a lot of hurdles to overcome before this event becomes a reality.  College coaches will receive this information even if we do not host, so it is important to nominate.  We will make a final decision the first week in July.

If the showcase proceeds, the Showcase Committee will gather all information and players will be notified via US Mail.  Players will be contacted after July 6, 2020. The committee will narrow the field to a manageable number (we do not know how many we will be able to accommodate at this time) of players from around the state - Juniors and Sophomores - Nominations will NOT be accepted via email or US Mail.

*NOMINATE PLAYERS ONLY FOR THE POSITION THEY MAY PLAY IN COLLEGE

All nominations are STILL due by June 30th, 2020. If you have any questions please contact:  iowajuniorshowcase@gmail.com

5/31/20 - All-Star Series Announcement -

Due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic issues that we are facing, the IHSBCA 2020 All-Star Series will be cancelled this summer.  This was not an easy decision to make, but to keep all involved safe we feel it is the right decision for this summer's event.  Our plan is to still have the All-Star Coaches pick the four All-Star Teams.  We need high school coaches to send in their senior nominee's by July 10th.  We will send each selected player a certificate towards their selection to one of the four All-Star Teams.  We understand that the 2020 senior class has lost out on graduation, prom, half a baseball season, and other school events.  We feel it is important to honor our seniors this way by continuing to select the All-Star Teams, despite having to cancel the event for this summer.  If you have questions, please contact Lee Toole or Dave Rock.  


With the go ahead by the Governor to start baseball practices on June 1 and games can begin on June 15, many of you may be looking for games to add to your schedule.  Send me an email and I will add your request for games to this list.

Nate Lahr - West Delaware High School

West Delaware is looking to host a game on July 14th.  We have umpires available that day as we had a team drop us.  Looking for a JV/V.  Email Coach Lahr at natelahr@w-delaware.k12.ia.us
