The Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA) is the primary regulatory body for high school athletics and activities in the state of Arizona. It comprises all of the state's public district high schools, various charter and private schools, plus a full member in Winterhaven, California and an associate member in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico.[1] The AIA has 265 members, including 262 full members (Rincon/University are one team and Bowie/San Simon are one team) and 3 associate members. Its' associate members are BASIS Chandler, Colegio Gante, and Holbrook Seventh-Day Adventist Indian School.

The AIA is not the only high school sports regulatory body in Arizona (the Canyon Athletic Association coordinates events for smaller schools, especially charter schools), but it is the largest and most well-known.
