The Arizona Interscholastic Association has entered into a partnership with Dollamur Sports Surfaces to become the “Official Spiritline Mat of the AIA.”

Thanks to this partnership, the AIA will receive a new co-branded nine-panel competition mat for the association’s Spiritline championship events.

"Dollamur is a proud to be the exclusive mat provider to the AIA state wrestling championships and we are excited to add Spiritline to our partnership with AIA. We appreciate the opportunity to provide Spiritline athletes the highest performing mats available for the AIA Spiritline championships. We look forward to working with the team at AIA on ways to best support Spiritline for many years to come," said Chuck Thompson, Dollamur Vice President of Wrestling, Gymnastics and Cheerleading.

“The AIA is excited to partner with Dollamur and elevate our Spiritline championships that much more,” added David Hines, AIA Executive Director. “Their dedication to producing high quality mats means the athletes can continue to excel in their events and at our finals. Having a partner on board that has the ability to heighten the performances of teams is a win for our schools.”

Member schools will have the opportunity to purchase discounted competition mats prior to the state championships. Dollamur representatives will be available to schools throughout this partnership, will be on hand at the state championships, and will promote its products through social media posts and e-mails sent to coaches and athletic directors.

In the third year of this partnership, a member Title I school will be awarded a nine-panel Spiritline competition mat at no cost through an essay/short video competition. Details will go out to the schools at that time.
