ALBUQUERQUE ― The New Mexico Activities Association is proud to announce the first of a three-part series of Officials Appreciation Weeks to honor and recognize the men and women who serve as interscholastic sports officials in the state of New Mexico.
The NMAA will be promoting one Officials Appreciation Week for each of its competitive seasons. Fall sports will be honored Oct. 30 through Nov. 3 for football, soccer and volleyball. Winter sports recognition will be Jan. 29 through Feb. 2 for basketball, spirit, swimming and wrestling. The final Officials Appreciation Week of the 2017-2018 school year will be April 23 through April 27 for spring sports (baseball, softball and track and 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.
