The NMAA has worked with its membership to create a modified calendar that will allow for all sports to be played in 2020-2021, while also limiting the overlap between each season so that students can still participate in multiple sports.

NMAA Executive Director, Sally Marquez, has also created an informational video that answers numerous questions regarding these changes.  This Q & A can be accessed from the below link:
