2020-21 Online Rules Meeting Schedule

Online Rules Meetings are available in all sports!

For Coaches, the Health & Safety/Handbook Presentation and the Officials Presentation are separate meetings, which must be watched first before access will be allowed to Sport-Specific Presentations.  If you are a multiple-sport coach or official, once you have watched the appropriate prerequisite content, you will not have to view it again for subsequent sports you are involved in.  If you are both a coach and an official, you will need to watch the Health & Safety and Official’s segments separately and then the sport specific rules meeting content twice.

Rules Meeting Policy

By Representative Council Action:

SECTION 8(B) – Each head coach of a varsity team in a sport under MHSAA jurisdiction shall complete (in person or online) the MHSAA rules meetings for that sport for the current school year prior to the deadline if meetings are provided and attendance is required. If the head coach does not complete a rules meeting prior to the deadline that coach shall be prohibited 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 team is being held. See Regulation II, Section 15 H(4). An administrator or faculty member designee of that school shall be present with supervisory capacity over the school's competitors. Failure to receive reminder notifications (email or other) does not change the requirement of this Section..

SECTION 8(C) – Schools shall attest that all assistant and sub varsity coaches have completed an MHSAA rules meetings (online or in person) for that sport for the current school year prior to the deadline. Assistant or sub varsity coaches, who coach more than one sport during a school year, must fulfill the requirement each season unless the sport is the same and the coach had completed the MHSAA sport specific rules meeting earlier in the school year for that sport (e.g. JV boys and JV girls soccer coach).  It is expected that schools will impose the penalty of Section 8 (B) to assistant or subvarsity coaches who do not meet this requirement by the deadline.  

SECTION 3 (B) – High schools must attest by each season’s established deadline that all varsity head coaches have a valid current Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) certification.  The established deadline shall be the latest date set for the completion of the MHSAA rules meeting for the sport .  A person who is head coach for more than one sport during the school year must meet the deadline for the first of those sports. It is expected that schools will impose the penalty of Section 8(B) to varsity head coaches who do not meet this requirement.     

SECTION 3 (C) – Each head coach of a varsity team in an MHSAA tournament sport hired for the first time as a high school varsity head coach at any MHSAA member high school after July 31, 2016 shall have completed either Level 1 or Level 2 of the MHSAA Coaches Advancement Program (CAP).  If the head coach does not complete CAP Level 1 or 2 prior to the established deadline, that coach shall be prohibited 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 team is being held. See Regulation II, Section 15 H(4). An administrator or faculty member designee of that school shall be present with supervisory capacity over the school's competitors.  Failure to receive reminder notifications (email or other) does not change the requirement of this Section. The MHSAA may substitute an alternative coach’s education program for late hires which will fulfill the requirement on a temporary basis.
