Heritage Hills Golf Resort and Conference Center in Springettsbury Township will remain the host site for the state's high school golf championships. The York County course has been hosting the events since 2002.

Golf wasn't the only sport to retain its location for the PIAA championships. Five other sports did as well, with four of those staying put within District 3.

Football and soccer will stay at Hersheypark Stadium. Cross country stays at the former site of Parkview Country Club in Hershey. The girls' individual and team tennis tournaments will again be at Hershey Racquet Club. Field hockey remains at Whitehall High School in Lehigh County.

The one change comes in girls' volleyball, with the state championships shifting from Johnstown's Richland High School to Cumberland Valley High School in Mechanicsburg. The championships were held at Central York High School before the move to Richland High School.
