When two or more schools, decide to merge athletic programs, MaxPreps will display all of the school involved in the co-op or their unique co-op name.
What is a Co-op Team?
A co-op team is when two or more schools merge the athletic program(s) and create one team. Each school, depending on the sport didn't have enough athletes to make a team themselves. In cases like this, we have what is refereed to as a Co-Op teams. We have quite a few schools set up in the MaxPreps system as co-ops.
Examples of Co-op Teams on MaxPreps:
Bismarck- Henning and Rossville-Alvin, two schools in Illinois have merged three teams together to field each of these teams.
- Boys Basketball
- Girls Basketball
Keyport and Hudson Regional, two schools in New Jersey have merged two sports together to field each of these teams.
- Girls Soccer
To let the coaches and fans know that these schools have merged together, the schools are listed differently on MaxPreps. The unique school name, informs members that for those sport seasons those schools fielded a team together.
If you are looking to have your Co-op listed on MaxPreps, please fill out our new school form and we will happily have them added.
