New Mexico Activities Association Executive Director Sally Marquez answers questions regarding guidelines for summer workouts following the COVID-19 health crisis. Here is this week’s interview.
On May 28, the New Mexico Activities Association Board of Directors passed by a vote of 8-4 that during 2020, summer activities can begin on June 15. If a school/school district opts to allow for summer activities to take place, the guidelines produced by the NMAA must be followed. These guidelines are based on the public health orders set by the Governor of New Mexico and will be updated accordingly. Schools/school districts can implement a later start date and/or stricter guidelines.
GRANTS, N.M. – The City of Grants Recreation Department announced that the 2020 youth baseball and softball season along with the adult slow pitch softball season have been cancelled.

Based on the recent directive from the New Mexico Public Education Department that schools will close for the remainder of the 2019-20 academic year, the NMAA and its Board of Directors have cancelled the 2020 State Spirit Championships, the 2020 Spring Sports Season, and all remaining activities for the current school year. This cancellation applies to practices/workouts, in addition to contests/events.
