  • 100 points for each State Runner-Up finish
  • 120 points for each State Championship

NOTE: Activities with participation points only are awarded in the spring and are based on data submitted to the NMAA through the annual NFHS Participation Survey.

Compete with Class / Sportsmanship

Schools with coach ejections in two or more sports seasons (Fall/Winter, Fall/Spring, Winter/Spring) are INELIGIBLE for Director’s Cup recognition. Each player and coach ejection will result in a deduction of 100 points from a school’s total. If a player is ejected twice during the same school year, this will be looked at similarly to a “coach ejection” and will count towards one sports season (applied to the season where the second ejection occurred). In the sport of Soccer, only the following red card fouls will count as a 100 point deduction and also applied towards a student-athletes ejection total: Violent Conduct; Taunting; Serious Foul Play; Spitting at an opponent, teammate, or game official; Using insulting, offensive or abusive language or gesture; Violent/Malicious Conduct.

The Process

There is not an application process for Director’s Cup awards. The NMAA will tabulate points after the conclusion of each sports season and will post this information on this page. Schools are encouraged to double check point totals and inform the NMAA staff of potential errors. Schools will still be recognized during the following year’s Fall Leadership Conference Luncheon held in October. Although deductions for ejections will be applied throughout the school year, ineligible schools will not be identified until after the spring season.
