MHSAA NETWORK SIGNUP - Also in July, radio stations and web audio outlets will need to fill out a second online form if they intend to join the MHSAA Radio Network and receive a rights fee waiver to originate tournament games.  

CHECK OUT JACK ROBERTS' BLOG-- MHSAA Executive Director John E. "Jack" Roberts is the only executive director of a state high school athletic association in the country to blog on a regular basis, and he posts entries on our website every Tuesday and Friday throughout the year with his thoughts about high school sports.  

You can follow Jack's blog through the home page of the MHSAA Website, or go directly to the blog's archive page by clicking here.

SUBMITTING INFORMATION FOR THE MHSAA RECORD BOOK -  When submitting information for the MHSAA Record Book, please remember that some form of documentation is required, and the best forms of documentation are the scoresheet from a game, the season-ending statistics sheet for a season record, and the season-ending stats sheets for each season a young person plays for career marks.  News accounts of a record being set are good backs-ups, but especially for career and season marks, the paper trail is necessary. 

We don't have the staff to chase down potential records.  Please be sure a submission is complete when you contact us.

HEAD TO THE MEDIA INFORMATION PAGE - The number of calls we get weekly from media members looking for information could be saved by just clicking on the Media Information page of the MHSAA Website.  It is the jumping-off point for everything from credentials to tournament information specifically for the media.  You an also make a quick jump to key information by going to the black box at the bottom of many pages of the MHSAA Website.

Here's a list of important links that will also help you find media information from the MHSAA:
