IAA president Carla Sarauw said that football commissioner Arthur Jamison, who is off-island, will decide whether the scheduled opener between the Private Schools Arawaks and the Chickenhawks carries over to next week, or if the Arawaks-Devil Rays game slated for Sept. 22 will be played.

IAA president Carla Sarauw indicated that the IAA would have no position on the strike issue.
"We as the IAA can only plan our leagues, and we will go ahead and plan," Sarauw told school representatives, league commissioners and other association members in attendance.
Coaches on St. Thomas have scheduled a vote on the proposed strike for 5 p.m. Monday at Charlotte Amalie High School.
...
Until that decision is made, Sarauw said, the IAA has no choice but to proceed as usual.She said league organizers cannot throw up their hands and assume there will be a strike.
"Look what happened on St. Croix," Sarauw said, referring to a preliminary vote by St. Croix coaches on Thursday that revealed fragmented opinions and only a minority of the coaches attending in support of a strike.Whether that setback will derail the coaches' push for change in the St. Croix District is unclear.
If coaches do call a strike, the IAA will not take a side in the dispute, Sarauw said.Schools and coaches play equally important roles in the IAA, forcing the association to remain neutral out of necessity.Though Sarauw refused to take sides, she said the IAA would pursue all options to keep student athletes on the field in the event of a strike.
"The IAA's role as it stands now is to get our athletes playing," Sarauw said."We can't decide that - because they're on strike - that we're on strike, too."
Sarauw said the IAA would work with whatever member schools could provide, including replacement coaches, to try to organize "skeleton" leagues or at least several tournaments for the remaining teams.
"Whatever you can salvage, you can salvage," she said.

The IAA board and IAA President Carla Sarauw requested that Hodge produce medical documentation supporting his claims.
...
On Feb. 6, 2007, the IAA board - comprising Sarauw, Michael Richardson, Merlene Frett, Evelyn Edwards, Dean Adams, Orville Isaac, Stephen Jurgen and Lindley "Buddy" Kennings - convened to discuss Hodge's case and provide both Hodge and Estrill with a chance to talk to the board.
...
Sarauw said that it was unfortunate that Hodge had academic problems as a freshman but that rules can't be broken to suit Hodge.
...
And it came out that that is not what kept him there," Sarauw said."It's a real unfortunate situation that we were faced with, but at least the child was honest enough to say, yes, he messed up."
Sarauw said coming to a decision was difficult but that the board didn't want to make an exception for one athlete.
"You have to realize that it would open a Pandora's box that could come back to snap you up down the road.Once you make an exception for athletes, one, two, three years down the road you will have other kids come to you and want the same thing," Sarauw said.
...
Sarauw said that the board was fair and that they gave Hodge extra time to gather documentation to support his case.
"I am simply saying that rules are rules and once you mess up at some point along the way, sometimes you have opted not to give yourself a second chance.If we don't stand for something, we fall for anything, and our student athletes, parents and coaches need to recognize the importance of staying focused from the time they enter high school," she said.
Sarauw added, "I don't want him to think it's the end of the road for him.

On Thursday, one day after hopes for a viable season were dashed when Charlotte Amalie High School announced it would not field a team, IAA President Carla Sarauw acknowledged mistakes by the IAA but said the blame lies ultimately with the individual schools.
Sarauw believes that the schools did not make appropriate preparations for having teams ready to play when the season began this week.She said some schools' attempts to field teams failed because no one was willing to take the time to organize players.
"There's not just one thing that needs to be changed," Sarauw said."The interest in working with students is no longer there like it used to be - especially in the public school system."
Sarauw said the main problem facing the league is a lack of coaches interested in taking the reins of a team.
"We've had more of a problem getting people who want to coach teams," she said.
...
Sarauw, however, said Wednesday that if the schools has been properly organized there would have been no problem getting the leagues started, despite initial delays.
"If everybody was doing everything they needed to do as a coach, we could have started the league earlier," Sarauw said.
...
Sarauw said exams were a "poor excuse," noting that student-athletes in college routinely balance their studies with the demands of practices and games.

John Interscholastic Athletic Association conceded any possibility of holding an organized softball season this school year after Charlotte Amalie High School officially dropped out of competition Wednesday afternoon, according to IAA President Carla Sarauw.
"I'm pretty upset about it but there's not much I can do about it at this point in time," Sarauw said Wednesday evening.
Sarauw said that she was not given a reason by CAHS for leaving the league but that two CAHS coaches indicated to her that insurance for the players and a lack of practice time were problems.
...
Sarauw said that the delay in starting the season was first because of difficulty finding a commissioner and later a lack of cooperation and preparedness by the public schools and their coaches.
"Every coach in the IAA knows what time a specific sport is going to start," she said.
...
"You can't hold IAA responsible when you make no effort to come to a meeting," Sarauw said.
...
Sarauw said she didn't believe that exams were a valid reason to keep students from taking part in the season.
"It's really a poor excuse," she said.
