The new online activities registration system is now open! Please make sure all your students are registering via this website.
Coaches Clipboard and Continuing Education Requirements (CERs)
The MSHSL Continuing Educations Requirements (CERs) need to be completed by:
A) all coaches who are working with student-athletes in grades 9-12, both paid and volunteer coaches
B) coaches working with only 7th and/or 8th graders, you only need to complete the online Concussion Module.
Reminder: The new CERs (which first went into effect prior to the 2014-15 school year) are good for three years, which means that if you have been a coach on staff for 3+ consecutive years, your CERs will very likely expire prior to your upcoming season(s) of coaching/advising/directing (and will need to be renewed).
The CERs can be accessed via the Coaches Clipboard. To view your account, or to create an account, access the link to Coaches Clipboard to the left and login or create a user email address and password.
2017-18 MSHSL Online Rules Meeting (NOTE: ONLY for the coaches that will be working with the JV and/or Varsity-level student-athletes in Football, Volleyball, and Cheerleading)
To the right is the schedule of the 2017-18 MSHSL Online Rules Meeting deadlines. For football, volleyball and cheerleading, all Head, Assistant and Lower Level Coaches working at the Varsity, JV or B-Squad level need to complete the online Rules Interpretation Meeting and Continuing Education Requirement (CER) accessible through Coaches Clipboard (link to the left). Coaches who do not complete a meeting must take the written rules test, and pass the test with a score of at least 80%. If neither is done the coach will be censured and the school will be fined $100. The exam will be available on your Coaches Clipboard beginning with the start date listed in the document as well as the deadlines to complete the exam.
Coaches Association Membership Dues (Varsity Head Coaches Only)
Remember to complete the Minnesota State High School Coaches Association for your sport(s) (link at left). The registration deadline varies from sport-to-sport, but you need to complete the registration prior to the deadline in order to be eligible to earn Academic Team and Individual honors.
