    3 STEP ENROLLMENT PROCESS:

    1) Registration & Payment:

      Beginning with the 2022-2023 school year, TCAPS Middle School athletes will now participate under the umbrella of the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA). The middle school teams under the MHSAA must be composed of students enrolled in TCAPS. MHSAA teams include Football, Volleyball, Basketball, Cross Country, Wrestling, Softball, and Track & Field and Tennis.

      In addition to MHSAA teams, LEAP will still have non-MHSAA teams in Volleyball and Basketball. LEAP will accept students from non-TCAPS schools on our non-MHSAA teams whenever possible. If your student is not enrolled at TCAPS, please register for the school team he or she attends. If your school is not listed, please select the Non-TCAPS option and enroll your student as an individual. All out-of-district individual students will initially be placed on a waitlist. Following the close of registration, these individuals will be contacted by LEAP to inform you if your student’s enrollment has been accepted.
