All-Star General Policies 

In order for athletes to be nominated, the head coach of the team must be a member of the NMHSCA during the current school year. 

Athletes must participate in 50% of the games played during the season to be eligible. 

All-Star athletes must be academically eligible and be a senior.

All-Star Football Players will have a $250.00 registration and all other sport athletes will have a $200.00 registration fee.  The NMHSCA Board of Directors expects coaches to use funds from the athletic department, booster clubs or other measures to pay for their athletes.  The registration fees are used to lodging, food, uniforms, staff, and officials for the games.  The NMHSCA receives no money from any entity for the games. 

All transactions of money for both all-star must be paid online with a credit card.  The NMHSCA does not accept Purchase Orders and or checks for all-star and all-state fees. If this is a problem, Contact the NMHSCA

All-Star Nomination Process 

At the completion of the regular season, head coaches of each all-star sport within a district shall meet and complete the NMHSCA All-Star Form A for that sport.  (See Forms Below) 

  • **Districts will be determined by the NMAA Alignment & Classification. 

Once the District Coaches complete NMHSCA Form A, the district is responsible for ensuring that a district representative takes the following steps: (Football sends 2 Reps)

  1. Attends the All-Star Selection Meeting on Sunday after the state championship.  The All-Star Selection Meeting will be at the NMHSCA office: 6600 Palomas NE. Albuquerque, NM 87109.
  2. The representative must bring the original Form A to the All-Star Selection Meeting.

Failure to follow prescribed steps could result in a district not being represented. It is up to the district to follow the process.

If no district meeting takes place or the district coaches cannot meet and submit the form by the due date, no athletes from that district are nominated unless approved by the president of the NMHSCA. 

Each district will be allowed to nominate the following number of athletes in each sport:

Soccer:  12
Volleyball:  10
Football:  30
Basketball: 10
Softball: 12
Baseball: 16  

All-Star Selection Process 

An all-star selection committee will comprise one district rep per district. (FB-2) The district chooses its committee members. The district must make sure that a district rep attends the all-star selection meeting.

A committee member (District Rep) does not represent any entity other than the NMHSCA; the goal is to pick the best teams possible. 

The committee will meet directly after the state championship in that sport at the NMHSCA offices on Sunday.

The committee will rank athletes by position.

The committee cannot rank an athlete higher than the ranking by a district on Form A. 

  • If an athlete is ranked as the #2 quarterback in a district, the athlete cannot be ranked above the athlete in that district that was ranked #1 in a district.
  • The #2 quarterback in District 1 can be ranked higher than the #1 quarterback in District 2.
  • The ranking on Form A only relates to kids from the same district.

Once the Committee has ranked the athletes by positions, teams will be selected by alternating ranking of the position in the following way:  #1 goes to Team 1, #2 & #3 goes to Team 2, & #4 goes to Team 1.  Positions are alternated from that point until the team is filled.

The teams must have the following attributes to ensure the teams are equitable across different classifications.
