The Micigan High School Athletic Association does not allow high school athletes to participate in national high school sports tournaments. If a student does, they then forfeit a year of athletic eligiblity. This is unfair as it does not allow Michigan athletes to develop into their full potential and represent our great state in their specific sports.

Phil McCracken, United States7 years ago Comments: While the ruling of the MHSAA does seem to be absurd, I often wonder how participating in a sporting event will actually help with a young woman or man's educational priorities. Many will rebuke with the notion of an increased possibility of receiving a scholarship if a student athlete is able to attend a national event. Why not just have the student athlete focus more attention on scholastics If a student has a high GPA and has some brains in her/his head they will not only be more likely to receive a scholarship (there are many more scholastic scholarships than sports), said student will also heighten her/his chances to stay academically eligible to participate in a sport. However, people tend to focus mainly on a student's ability to garner a scholarship because s/he can run, jump, swim, throw some sort of a ball around and everything else in between.
