NJ's Interscholastic Athletic Association approves budget
The New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) approved its budget today at its Robbinsville headquarters.
The NJSIAA said it was planning on cutting tournaments in order to make up for a budget shortfall of more than $600,000. Instead of cutting tournaments, the NJSIAA will cut positions and freeze salaries.
The association blames a good portion of the budget shortfall on what is expected to be a drop in ticket sales revenue. New state legislation requires the association to cap the amount it will charge.
NJSIAA is also slashing funds for steroid testing and hydration programs.
