High School Activities Month

October is National High School Activities Month.  It is a time to celebrate the contributions and benefits young people experience by participation in sports and activities.  NMAA member high schools are encouraged to promote the values inherent in interscholastic athletics and activities.

Each week during October will have a different focus.  October 20-25 is National Coaches/Sponsors/Advisors/Officials Week.  It is a time to recognize all of the adults who work tirelessly on behalf of the students who participate in interscholastic programs.

Student-Athlete Spotlight

Analyssa Escudero, a senior at Silver High School, has enjoyed playing sports most of her life.  Although she wasn’t always the star, or the one who received the highest accolades, it’s always been more important to her to be a good teammate over anything else.  Read more...

Student-Athlete Tip of the Week

At most sporting events, the national anthem is played before the start of the game.  How do you show your respect for the flag and our great country?  Do you stand at attention?  Do you put your hand on your heart?  Before your sporting event, does your coach or team captain encourage the team to do something uniformly?

Last week before an Indianapolis Colts game, quarterback Andrew Luck was observed with hand on heart, singing the anthem as it was being played.  Positive role models are alive and well.  Remember, others will be watching you!
