The Las Cruces Public Schools Athletics Department is proud to participate in the New Mexico Activities Association’s Compete with Class Sportsmanship Program

“Compete with Class” is a New Mexico sportsmanship program designed to help better understand the true value of interscholastic athletics and activities – to educate and prepare our youth for the future.

It was developed through a collaboration process involving athletic directors, coaches and school administrators as well as input from student and adult communities with the purpose of restoring the placement of interscholastic activities in an educational perspective and providing our state with a sportsmanship program that would be embraced and called our own.

The program was designed as an effort to promote and establish a strong culture of sportsmanship based on the core values of respect, integrity, and responsibility.
