NMAA to contemplate how to navigate a coronavirus summer

Whether New Mexico will have normal seasons of high school sports this fall is a question that – as with pro leagues and colleges – doesn’t have a definitive answer.

In the meantime, the New Mexico Activities Association has two board of directors meetings this month that are expected, among other things, to lay out a blueprint for how summer sports activities may proceed and the precise rules schools will have to follow in this, the most extraordinary of years because of the coronavirus public health crisis.

The first of those two meetings is Friday morning.

The special teleconference meeting begins at 9 a.m. There is another meeting scheduled for May 28, and the NMAA always has a meeting in late May/early June to conclude each school year.

Friday’s meeting has a relatively abbreviated agenda, but there are two action items that will be of interest. The first is determining student eligibility for the 2020-21 school year. The second will delve into summer activity and regulations.

Athletes and coaches of fall sports are hoping to get some guidance from the NMAA on what types of workouts or practices will be allowed following the May 28 meeting.
