Activity Fees

  • The high school fee is $150 per MHSAA sport with an annual cap of $300 per student. The fee for fall Pom Pon, winter Pom Pon and fall cheerleading is $75.
    Beginning in 2014-15 Student Athletes will receive an annual athletic pass at no extra charge when they fulfill their activity fee obligation (see #5).
  • There is no annual family cap.
  • Scholarships are available to students. To apply for a scholarship, please fill out the Free and Reduced Price School Meals Family Application and check
    the box allowing the food service department to share your application with the athletic department. Additional scholarships may be available. Please contact a counselor for more information.
  • One of the three Activity Fee obligations ($150 or $75 fee paid, free and reduced lunch status determined, or scholarship awarded by the principal) must be completed prior to participation
    in the athlete’s first try-out or practice of a sport.
  • For athletic teams that have cuts, the Activity Fee will be refunded if the athlete is not selected for the team.
  • The Activity Fee does not guarantee playing time nor does it imply influence on any matters related to the function of the MPS athletic departments. This fee does not in any way alter MPS policies, individual team rules, or Michigan High School Athletic Association regulations.
  • There will be no refunds of the Activity Fee unless the athlete suffers a season-ending injury prior to the mid-point of the season for which the Activity Fee has been paid. The injury must preclude the athlete from participating in one-half or more of the regularly scheduled contests. A medical authorization letter must accompany all such requests. Requests for refunds must be made to the athletic department before the season’s midpoint.
  • Activity fees may be paid online by check or credit card at the Midland Public Schools web site. Paying online is convenient and preferred. Online Payments
  • Fees may also be paid by cash or check in the athletic and main offices. Due to the number of payments expected, online payments are encouraged for faster service.
