Coach of the Year Eligibility Deadline Approaching

Is your team doing well this season?  Hoping to crack the Top 10 at the MHSAA State Finals?  Then you are a “potential” MITCA Coach of the Year candidate.

BUT – This is a MITCA award, and you must be a MITCA member to earn the award or be nominated as a finalist.

If you registered/paid for the 2014 XC Clinic, you are a current member.

If you registered/paid for the 2015 TF Clinic, you are a current member.

If you printed off a membership registration form, paid your membership fee, and mailed it to the MITCA Treasuer, Jerry Lasceski after October 1 2014, then you are a current member.

IF NOT, then you must submit (& postmark) your membership information and payment BEFORE October 1 in order to be eligible for possible Coach of the Year honors for the current Cross Country Season (to be awarded at the November Clinic).

* Important Note: Signing up for the 2015 XC Clinic will make you eligible for NEXT SEASON, but NOT THIS SEASON.  If you are not a current member, you must follow the link below and become one prior to October 1 in order to be eligible for this year’s COY awards.
