It is with a heavy heart that I write this. New Mexico has closed all high schools beginning March 16th for 3 weeks. As a result, the NM Spring Coaches Clinic has been cancelled. I am grateful for coaches/clinicians that have committed to this event. In light of athletic/large group cancellations around the country, I am doing my part to keep our coaches community safe during this time.
I will meet with CampPros/business office to refund registration fees, & hope that we can do this again in 2021! Stay safe & healthy!
