Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be a U-M student to participate?
Yes. In order to be eligible for rewards all participants must fully complete their H.A.I.L. mobile app account profile with a valid UMID.
Do I have to have a smart phone in order to participate?
No. At every home Michigan Athletics event there will be a H.A.I.L check-in station equipped with iPads that any student can use to "check-in" and earn points.
What sports can I earn points for attending?
All of them! As a general rule, all sports earn you two points for attendance (except Football, Men's Basketball, and Ice Hockey). To earn the full two points for Football, Men's Basketball and Ice Hockey you must check-in at least 20 minutes before game time, after that you only earn one point for those sports. Select events will also be chosen throughout the year as "Bonus Point" opportunities where you'll earn extra points for showing up to a key game (i.e. Maize Star Events).
How do I "check-in" to events?
Easy! Either open the H.A.I.L. mobile app, choose the event you're attending, and tap "Check in to this Event" or visit the H.A.I.L. station and follow the same steps on one of Michigan Athletics' iPads.
If I check-in on my phone how do you know I'm actually there?
It's called a geo-fence. We have virtual parameters set up around each of our venues. So, if you try to check-in outside of our set boundaries we'll know.
What is the definition of "attending" an event?
Full attendance is defined as checking-in to an event no later than 10 minutes after the scheduled start time and leaving the same event only after regulation play has expired.
If I don't have a smart phone how do I keep track of my point total or upcoming events?
Once you attend your first event and register as a H.A.I.L. participant, you will receive a weekly email containing your current point total, standing on the leaderboard, upcoming events, and any bonus point opportunities.
