*Please read all of the following information closely as it should answer most of your questions. You can use the registration link below to complete your students registration.
Registration Cost:
The cost for each sport registration is $65.00
Practice Information:
Right now we do not have any game times or practice times. Once we know how many students are signed up we can put teams together with coaches and finalize our plan for the season. If for any reason you cannot commit to the season once practices and game times have been announced you may ask for a full refund. If you are unsure for now, it's always best to register before the deadline and see how the season schedule plays out. NO refunds will be issued after the first game or meet has started. 
APIAL NM Mask Mandate for non-vaccinated individuals. 
APIAL cannot enforce any other policy not specifically outlined by the NMDOH. Please see the current NM Mask Mandate and health Order here.  (this policy is likely to change over time and could revert to stricter policy or a less stringent policy pending youth vaccination trials and COVID-19 disease progression. 
Sport Physicals.

Student Athletes cannot participate in games or practices without a current physical on file with Hope.
