The NMAA, a member-led organization, provides leadership in interscholastic athletics & activities, promoting equitable participation and character development.
The New Mexico Activities Association Foundation was established in 2007 as a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that awards scholarships to participants of 13 interscholastic sports and 23 school activities. The primary mission of the organization is to raise funds for these awards. One of the Foundation's largest fund-raising events is the annual Golf Classic.
The 7th annual NMAA Foundation Golf Classic will be held Monday, June 3rd at Tanoan Country Club. Morning and afternoon spots are still available and lunch will be served from 11:30 am until 1:00 pm.
Is it a high priority for you to be on time for class, practice, and other school or social activities? This is a responsibility that you can control. There is nothing more frustrating for a teacher or coach than to be interrupted after a class or practice has started. There's rarely a good excuse for not being on time. Make it a point to be early. That way you are more likely to be engaged in that day's activity.
Sometimes student-athletes are penalized for something they don't have much control over. Being on time shows that you care and respect the time and commitment of all the others involved.

Sports Championships have concluded for the 2012-2013 school year. Be sure to keep up with all high school action throughout the year on individual sport pages (links above under the Athletics tab) and join the conversation on the NMAA Facebook page.
High school administrators across the country are now able to conduct nationwide searches for athletic department job openings with the launch of the NFHS High School Career Center. In addition, job seekers can post a rèsumè and search the listing of jobs free of charge. The NFHS High School Career Center is located on the NFHS Web site and can be accessed at careercenter.nfhs.org.
The Career Center is designed to broaden the search for coaching and other athletic department openings. Employers can gain more exposure for the position vacancy through the “Featured Job” option. Once an account has been created and a job posted, employers can search rèsumès and have qualified job seekers’ information e-mailed to them automatically. Job seekers also have the ability to customize their job search within the Career Center. Job searches can be done by keywords and location, and job alerts can be created to send e-mail alerts when a job is posted that matches their requirements.
