The NCHSAA participates in the voluntary NFHS Official High School Licensing Program managed through K12 Licensing, formerly known as LRG (Licensing Resource Group). This national high school licensing initiative was launched in the 2010-11 school year.
The initiative aims to protect schools' rights relative to their school logo and name on merchandise sold in retail outlets, thereby providing an alternative revenue source to the schools. For decades, stores have produced and sold high school-branded gear and apparel with no schools' revenues.
From 2010-11 through the 2018-19 school year, participating member high schools have shared $218,867.00 in revenues through the initiative.
To learn more about the high school licensing initiative, visit the official NFHS site or contact Jared Harding, General Manager, at 317-669-0809.
