Community Service

For student-athletes, participation in interscholastic athletics is a privilege which comes with great responsibilities. Among these responsibilities is showing respect for opportunities granted and providing service so that others can experience the same opportunities. Giving back to the community is what makes student-athletes heroes in the eyes of those who look up to them.

MIAA member school administrators are encouraged to take advantage of the incredibly strong power of influence that each of their coaches, captains and student-athletes share to help build stronger communities by giving back and proving that helping hands make a huge difference. As the efforts of the MIAA to promote community service continue to grow, so do the hopes and expectations that member school leaders and high school coaches will take the initiative to start their own service projects within their communities to help build atmospheres of respect and camaraderie.
