SPIRIT ITEMS AT EVENTS: A HELP GUIDE
There can often times be confusion about what spectators can and cannot use in terms of spirit items during MHSAA Tournaments and regular season events. TC Central adheres to many MHSAA Tournament expectations with regard to noisemakers and spirit items for the sake of consistency throughout the entire season. See examples at this link:
Student-athletes are strongly encouraged to ride to and from athletic events with their teammates & coaches. Situations occasionally arise where an alternative plan may need to occur. When a student-athlete rides to or from an away event (outside of Traverse City) with his/her parent or a parent of a teammate, a Transportation Variance Form (below) MUST be completed and submitted to the head coach prior to the event. Student-athletes are never permitted to drive to or from away events, or ride with anyone other than his/her parent or a parent.
The following are links to health-related forms. More information regarding each form, along with links to the form, can be found by navigating to “Training Room” and selecting “Physicals & Concussions.”
*UPDATE to the Concussion Acknowledgement Form: NEW! Students & Parents now have the option of easily acknowledging this information electronically in PowerSchool! Both the student AND parent must acknowledge! Simply click on the Forms tab in PowerSchool and follow the instructions. A signed form OR electronic Acknowledgement form suffices. Students only need to submit this Acknowledgement ONE TIME during high school…not each season nor each school year!
MHSAA OFFICIALS RECRUITMENT
Respect & support for MHSAA Game Officials is needed now more than ever! Currently on an alarming four-year decline in registration, we need to retain the officials that we currently have, largely by showing our support for their willingness to do the job by respecting the calls that are made. In addition, we need to encourage friends and family members, especially youngsters, to give it a try. Without officials, there would be no games! Learn more here:

NCAA SIGNING & RECOGNITION DATES
We love to recognize and honor our Trojan senior student-athletes who sign or commit to play at the collegiate level. This link provides the dates that recognition ceremonies will take place at CHS. Coaches and/or parents should inform the Athletic Office if a team member plans to sign a Division I or II National Letter of Intent (LOI) on one of the dates indicated. Or, if a student plans to sign a Division III (or other affiliation) Letter of Commitment or other form of commitment, please notify the Athletic Office so that we can plan to recognize all student-athletes moving on to the next level on the May date!
Do you aspire to be a student-athlete at the Division I or Division II level? Get started with the NCAA Clearinghouse process by your junior year, if not sooner. NOTE: The NCAA may not approve various online courses taken in high school. Know before you enroll in an online course!
