General FYI/BTW nearly all information posted on the NJSIAA website is posted as a link to a PDF file. Even data that should be in a spreadsheet or should all be in one document or posted directly to the website content is posted in separate PDF files. It makes their website difficult to search and rather opaque to search engines, thus reducing the effectiveness of their overall information. I have a friend who is a homeschool mom and is looking for a way to get her kids onto local hockey teams. She found the NJSIAA web presences to be a difficult customer experience. She wound up calling directly and still had a hard time getting the information she needed.
Data according to NJ.com, not the most reliable source of data, but not the worst either. What is most helpful is that you can edit the sport name in the URL field and get comparisons with other sports like icehockey, wrestling, handball, etc.
