ALBUQUERQUE – The New Mexico Activities Association announces its third and final Officials’ Appreciation Week of 2017-18 season to honor and recognize the men and women who serve as interscholastic sports officials in the state of New Mexico.
The NMAA has promoted one Officials’ Appreciation Week for each of its competitive seasons:
- Fall sports were honored Oct. 30 through Nov. 3 for football, soccer and volleyball;
- Winter sports recognition was Jan. 29 through Feb. 2 for basketball, spirit, swimming and wrestling; and
- Spring sports recognition is April 23 through April 27 for baseball, softball and track & field.
The Association is taking the opportunity to thank the members of the New Mexico Officials Association and is encouraging its member schools to take part by participating in Officials Appreciation Week on their campuses. The NMAA understands the important role that officials play in the lives of student-athletes and reminds coaches, players and spectators that without officials, there can be no opportunities for participation in athletics by our student-athletes.
