MPA proposal would expand high school volleyball to 3 classes
The changes would make travel easier in a sport that is growing in southern and Down East Maine.

... “A big part of this consideration is the fact right now you have a small Class B and a very large Class A,” said Jack Hardy, North Yarmouth Academy athletic director and chair of the volleyball committee. “It’s not balanced. It makes sense to have three classes more equal in size. Plus you have a big Class A that could potentially get bigger.”

The proposal places 12 schools in Class A, ranging in size from Thornton Academy (enrollment of 1,412) to Marshwood (781). Class B would have 13 schools, ranging in size from Falmouth (696) to Wells (432).

Class C would have 10 schools, ranging in size from Washington Academy (417) to Jonesport-Beals (67).

If the cut-off for A was the same as most sports then the numbers would already be close to even. I would think a couple of the schools that are under the cut-off will apply up to A.

For the school size to relavent , you've got to have more certified coaches and and more club team options. You have a few coaches who can put a quality team on the court , and take raw talent see it and mold it into a winning program
