CLASSIFICATION & ALIGNMENT
AD’s TIP OF THE WEEK
Scholastic Eligibility. As per NMAA 6.2 all student athletes must meet the scholastic eligibility requirements of that handbook section. It is recommended that the AD be the primary source of checking eligibility for all student athletes at the school. Scholastic eligibility must include all courses students are taking, including concurrent enrollment and on-line courses, and must be done within 7 calendar days of the end of the grading period and determined on the same day for all students. The NMAA has an “Eligibility Spreadsheet” that can assist you in streamlining this process.

The Battlefields to Ballfields Foundation (B2B) has teamed up with the New Mexico Officials Association (NMOA) to offer scholarships to active military members and military veterans to defray the start-up costs of officiating.
