MHSAA Catastrophic Accident Insurance
The administrator of the MHSAA-purchased catastrophic accident medical insurance plan for 2016-17 has clarified some insurance issues relative to transportation.
Under the MHSAA-purchased plan . . .
“Eligible student-athletes are covered while traveling directly to and from a scheduled event as a representative of the school while traveling in transportation sponsored by the school, and while participating in-season in an allowed activity under the direct supervision of a full-time school employee or coach designated by the school acting within the scope of his/her coaching duties in those sports for which the MHSAA provides a tournament series.”
The administrator has confirmed in writing that the meaning is to include school-provided transportation (school bus, school van, school vehicle) as well as a coach who is authorized by the school to drive student-athletes, and it includes transportation to a practice, scrimmage or contest.
The coverage does not cover or include a parent who is driving only his/her own son or daughter in a personal vehicle, nor does it cover a student who is authorized by the school to drive him-self/herself.
No advance authorization form is required. The accident claim form will determine if it was school-authorized transportation. It is prudent for schools’ written policies to authorize specifically if students and/or parents and/or coaches may provide transportation, and the conditions under which they may do so.

Sports Physicals for 2016 / 2017
All students wishing to participate in Middle School or High School athletics during the 2016/2017 school must have a physical on file dated on or after April 15, 2016 per Michigan High School Athletic Association. Any questions you can contact the Athletic Department @ 231.757.4748.
We will NOT have the traditional $10 physical offered to student athletes this spring for the 2016/17 school year. Unfortunately it has become to big of a liability for the medical community to continue this practice in the the school.
We do have an agreement with Dr. Michelle Kuster of All Access Care in Ludington to offer a $30 physical for MCC student athletes. Families simply have to do the following:
Dr. Kuster will email the completed physical card to MCC.
