NMAA Spring Sports Calendar Revised


The New Mexico Activities Association has approved a new spring sports calendar for all high school sports. Start dates were originally set for January 4. The reality of that happening with the COVID-19 pandemic caused the NMAA to delay for a month.

Football was postponed in the fall but starts the spring calendar on February 1. All of the 13 sports offered under the NMAA are scheduled for competition. The last games will be played in late June of 2021.

The spaced-out dates will prevent overlap for students competing in multiple sports. “February is probably the time where there’s not much else to get all the sports in unless we put them on top of each other,” said NMAA Executive Director Sally Marquez. “The last thing we want to do is have students have to choose from one sport or the other. The goal from the beginning, and it is still the goal that in the 2021 school year, that every student will be able to play the sport that they love.”
