membership by over 1,800 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.
