NMAA TO POSTPONE STATE SPIRIT AND SUSPEND ACTIVITY AND SPRING SPORTS PROGRAMS
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The New Mexico Activities Association and its Board of Directors has postponed the State Spirit Championships and suspended all activity programs and spring athletic programs until further notice. This includes practices as well as contests/events. The State Basketball Championships will continue with final games being played tomorrow.
This decision is based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat and the Public Education Department’s announcement that schools will be closed for three weeks starting on Monday.
The NMAA staff will remain in constant communication with the Governor’s office, the Public Education Department, the Department of Health, and its member schools to provide all necessary updates as the situation continues to develop.
A Special Board of Directors’ Meeting to further discuss this issue has been scheduled for Wednesday, April 1st at 9am and will be held via teleconference.
