Memorial Benefit Program
In 1967, this program was initiated to provide indemnity in the case of a death of a junior high or high school athlete, whose head coach of the sport in which the death occurs, is a members in good standing of the THSCA. The program currently grants $3,000.00 for the death of an athlete when said death is caused by participating in any University Interscholastic League sanctioned sport, if an accident occurs in a game, scheduled practice or off-season athletic class, under the supervision or a regularly employed coach. This program has since been extended to include both Private and Parochial student athletes. Since inception, this program has provided over $206,000 in assistance to families of deceased athletes.
