Area and County Programs Overview
Ten geographic sub-divisions of Indiana consisting of seven (7) to 13 counties, Areas are responsible for conducting competitions and support of County Programs. Each Area is run by a committee of volunteers known as the Area Management Team. The Area Director and Area Competition Director oversee the Area Program, which includes regular coaches meetings, sectional competitions, and at least one bowling tournament and one track & field meet a year.
County Programs have a committee of volunteers responsible for making a year-round program of sports training and competition available to all eligible athletes within its boundaries. Though usually consisting of one county, some county programs may consist of two (2) or three (3) counties in rural areas or a portion of a county in urban areas. The County Coordinator is the person appointed to oversee the operation of a SO Indiana program.
