MHSAA Network Debuts Highlights Shows For Fall Championships;
EAST LANSING, Mich. – Dec. 11 – Highlights programs wrapping up Michigan High School Athletic Association championships from this past fall in cross country, golf and tennis will be available for cable and Internet viewing this month via the MHSAA Network.
The MHSAA Network provides video coverage of regular-season and post-season tournament events to be distributed on multiple platforms. MHSAA.TV is the portal site for video content, and the launching pad to MHSAA Radio. During the Fall of 2008, the MHSAA Network produced nearly 400 hours of original programming, covering over 140 contests, including MHSAA Final events in all sports except football.
The MHSAA is a private, not-for-profit corporation of voluntary membership by over 1,600 public and private senior high schools and junior high/middle schools which exists to develop common rules for athletic eligibility and competition. No government funds or tax dollars support the MHSAA, which was the first such association nationally to not accept membership dues or tournament entry fees from schools. Member schools which enforce these rules are permitted to participate in MHSAA tournaments, which attract approximately 1.6 million spectators each year.
Farm Bureau Insurance and MEEMIC Insurance are year-round MHSAA Corporate Partners
