Media Credentials

No late requests will be accepted and all requests must be submitted through the appropriate online form.

Any person holding an NCHSAA Year-Long Credential does not need to complete the application for Single Event Credentials to attend an NCHSAA Championship Event. Year-Long holders should send an email to James Alverson (james@nchsaa.org ) at least 48 hours prior to the contest with the number of year-long pass holders attending from their outlet. This notification will ensure you are provided with accommodation and any media materials (notes packet & any snacks/meals) that may be provided at the event.

The NCHSAA cannot guarantee accommodation do outlets not requesting space and materials in advance. Thank you for your cooperation.
