The Central Iowa Metropolitan League
The Central Iowa Metropolitan League

The Central Iowa Metropolitan League (CIML) will change as we know it today with the start of the 2012-2013 school year. With the upcoming addition of Ankeny Centennial High School to the league in 2013-2014, league member schools began the process of realignment in April, 2010. After a year's worth of study and debate, the new look CIML was formed.

Although Ankeny Centennial will not join the fold until 2013-2014, league members pressed ahead with realignment for the 2012-2013 school year due to the cycle of schedules. The current schedule cycle expires at the conclusion of the 2011-2012 school year. A new, four-year cycle of scheduling will begin in 2012-2013.

The new alignment is as such:

Central-Iowa Conference (CIC)

Eastern Division
Ankeny, Ankeny Centennial, Southeast Polk, Waukee

Western Division
Dowling Catholic, Johnston, Urbandale, Valley

Metro Conference
