Coaches' Requirements

High school head coaches of a varsity sport must have a valid CPR Certification (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation). More information on this CPR Certification can be found here. CPR Certification is tracked by the school athletic director, similar to the rules meeting-risk management course requirement for assistant and sub varsity coaches.  Athletic Directors must confirm (attest) each season through that both these requirements have been met. If a coaching requirement is not complete prior to the deadline, the school shall prohibit that coach  from coaching in that season's MHSAA tournament for the sport involved and shall not be present at the facility where the MHSAA tournament involving that coach's sports team is being held.

All individuals who have been designated by their school or district to serve as an assistant or subvarsity coach (paid or volunteer) at the high school level must complete the same rules/risk management meeting requirement as the high school head coach.

The deadlines for each MHSAA member high school athletic director to certify, while logged into, that all of its assistant and subvarsity coaches (paid and volunteer) have completed this requirement are below. These are the same deadline applies for certifying that head coaches have met the CPR Requirement:

  • Fall Sports - Sept. 12
  • Winter Sports - Dec. 12
  • Spring Sports - April 16

2019-20 Rules Meeting Dates and Coaches Requirements

Assistant and subvarsity coaches who have been registered in the MHSAA’s system with an up-to-date email address may log in to and complete the same required rules meeting, just as the varsity head coach must do. In the alternative, the school may direct or permit assistant and subvarsity coaches to complete the rules meeting requirement individually or in a group setting. Regardless of the method utilized, the administration of the school is responsible for attesting to the completion of the requirement by all sports team coaches by the deadlines listed above. Click the link above to see the MHSAA  Handbook Coaching Requirements Regulations (Reg. II, Section 3 (B & C) and Section 8  (B & C).
