Your Team Must Have:

  1. At least one competitor
  2. A coach that is at least 21 years of age
  3. A Registration Ambassador who will take care of your teams registration

Public and Private School Students:

  1. Whether or not a high school currently has an MSA, students must form a team with their own high school. All students from a school must register together as one team.
  2. If the MSA as a whole chooses not to participate in the tournament, the few members who would like to join MIST can still represent their high school.
  3. If the high school does not have an MSA, students should try their best to form an Islamic educational organization open to students/faculty of any religion, gender, or national origin in their high school. (Check out MIST National's How to form an MSA for more information.) Having an organization or MSA will make it easier to keep registration organized.
  4. If students are unable to form an MSA or student organization, they can:
             •Try convincing another cultural organization or even their high school to sponsor MIST as an official            
              extracurricular activity. 
            •If this does not work, you may still take part in MIST by unofficially representing your school. E-mail us at
     if you plan on making an unofficial team.
