This year, in cooperation with the Des Moines Menace , IAHSSCA presents both the Boys and Girls East-West All Star Cups. The Cup games offer an opportunity for recently graduated seniors to play alongside their peers in an exhibition with additional publicity. The games are played immediately prior to a Menace home game at Valley Stadium, with player recognition during halftime of the following Menace game.
Players are nominated and selected by IHSSCA-member coaches. Participants take part in a practice, enjoy lunch before the game, and receive a commemorative jersey.
Coaches for each team are selected by IHSSCA peers.
This year's East vs. West Senior All-Star Games will take place on Saturday, July 10, 2021.
