A full refund will be granted up to the first contest. A 50% refund will be given up to one (1) month from the beginning of the sport season (see schedule) for: a) moving out of district; b) season-ending sports injuries or medical reasons with a physician’s note. c) extenuating circumstances (determined by Coach, Athletic Director, and High School Principal). Refunds will NOT be granted for academic ineligibility, quitting the team, or disciplinary action affecting team participation or membership.

Scholarship donations by individuals, organizations, and businesses are GREATLY appreciated. Please make checks payable to “MSHS ATHLETIC SCHOLARSHIPS” and forward to the Athletic Office at the following address: MSHS Athletics, 1203 West Fair Avenue, Marquette, MI 49855

A $700 per-family cap has been approved by the school board for participation in district-funded sports. If your family has exceeded, please notify the Athletic Office. If you are close to the cap, you will only need to pay the difference for your spring sport. Please note that any pay-to-participate fee for self-funded teams WILL NOT count toward the MSHS family cap.

Please call the Athletic Office (225-4220) or submit an e-mail (athletics@mapsnet.org) with any questions you may have or to request a scholarship or refund.
