MHSAA Programs and Resources for Parents

Parents can be the most  influential and positive support group for young athletes as they grow and develop. The  following resources will help students get the most out of their interscholastic athletic experiences. We encourage you to work closely with local school administrators to take full advantage of the benefits offered through school sports.

Scholarship, Leadership and Sportsmanship

College Prep

The maze of eligibility requirements, admissions standards and recruiting regulations -- and how they vary from junior colleges to colleges and universities -- can be as daunting and intimidating as any opponent you've faced at your current grade level. To that end, we offer this section of the MHSAA Website as a springboard to your dreams of collegiate athletic participation.

Efficiency is Effective...

The MHSAA is always willing to assist with issues concerning Association regulations. Please remember, however, the most efficient method of communication with the MHSAA on eligibility questions is through the athletic director or principal. Athletic directors should gather all information necessary on a question and then call or write the MHSAA. Coaches or parents calling the MHSAA on eligibility matters can create confusion and delay. ADs or principals are encouraged to contact the MHSAA office directly. Please follow this efficient path of communication.
