Reasons for IHSS Membership

  • Offsets the cost of running the website and forum.
  • Funds the IllinoisHighSchoolSports.com Scholarship Program. Without paid memberships, we would not be able to offer scholarships.  Since we started the program we have awarded over $50,000 to graduating seniors across the state.
  • Helps prevent spamming and trolls on the forum (Not 100% effective, but helps).

Cost of IHSS Membership

  • $18.00 per year (only $1.50 per month)
  • We offer single yearly memberships as well as recurring memberships. An academic membership is available for users who want to contribute more than the $18.00 per year.  This additional money goes towards the scholarship program.
