The Rhode Island Interscholastic League (RIIL) and MaxPreps, the online high school sports leader, have announced a three-year partnership agreement that will enable the RIIL to provide a customized sports information platform for its member schools.
MaxPreps and the RIIL will offer a publishing platform across desktop, tablet and mobile that will streamline the process of managing sports information for its member schools. The partnership enables all box score information published on MaxPreps.com to be automatically provided to the RIIL for use in managing various initiatives.
Beginning in the 2020-21 school year, coaches will be encouraged to submit statistics to MaxPreps after each game to accurately track regular-season standings and create statewide leaderboards on the RIIL website.
“The RIIL is committed to providing our student-athletes with the best school-based athletic experience possible,” said Michael Lunney, Executive Director of the Rhode Island Interscholastic League. “We are excited about this new partnership initiative with MaxPreps and the expansion of the sports information capabilities for our members schools, students, parents, family members and high school sports fans.”
“The RIIL does a tremendous job already servicing its member schools, and MaxPreps is excited to integrate our technology to help the RIIL continue to expand its media website,” said Gerry Valerio, Director of State Association Partnerships for MaxPreps. “Our goal at MaxPreps has always been to feature sports information from every team, every game and every player in America, and we are thrilled to be able to share the accomplishments of RIIL student-athletes with the entire nation.”

MaxPreps has been on the prep sports scene since 2002 and has successfully partnered with 30 other high school state associations.
