Minnesota State High School League

Media Credentialing

Welcome to the Minnesota State High School League’s media credentials system. The League thanks you for your coverage of the member schools, its participants and their communities.

The credentialing system is a two-step process:

1. Registration: An organization must first apply within the registration windows.

There are 3 registration windows:

      • Fall: Sept. 9-Oct 4 (Organizations must register during this window to be eligible to declare for Fall tournament coverage)
      • Winter: Jan. 1-31 (Organizations must register during this window or the previous one to be eligible to declare for Winter tournament coverage)
      • Spring: April 1-30 (Organizations must register during this window or one of the previous two to be eligible to declare for Spring tournament coverage)
    • No registrations for a season's activities will be accepted after the deadlines.

An organization needs to register only once during the 2019-20 year.

    • Contact Communications Coordinator Tim Leighton with questions about registering for credentials. He can be reached at tleighton@mshsl.org Phone: 763-569-0485


2. Declaration: At the approximate opening of the postseason in each activity, a declaration window will open for organizations to communicate with the League their intentions over covering state tournament events. No declarations will be accepted after the deadline. Declarations will assist League staff in preparing credentials for each of the state tournament events.

    • Administrative Assistant Yvonne Walsh will oversee tournament coverage declarations. She can be reached at ywalsh@mshsl.org Phone 763-569-0486
