Suggested volunteers include, but are not limited to, adult skaters, parents, and officials.

For more information, please contact Cal Carson at calvin_carson@macgroup.org
Introduced in 1999, and continuing to grow every year, the Michigan High School Skating series offers great opportunities for skaters to participate in team sports and to be part of their school's athletic program.
