NAIA Eligibility Center

  • The National Association of Interscholastic Athletics (NAIA) is the governing body for athletics programs at its nearly 300 colleges and universities throughout the United States and Canada. The long-held mission of the NAIA is to promote the education and development of well-rounded students and productive citizens through intercollegiate athletics. The association offers equitable access and opportunities for participation in its 23 national championship events in 13 sports held annually throughout the country.

    Today, the NAIA strengthens its commitment to student-athletes and strives to enrich their college experience by supporting academic achievement and character development.

    Students wishing to play college athletics at an NAIA school should register for the NAIA Eligibility Center during the spring of their junior year at http://playnaia.org.

    Remember the NCAA Eligibility Center and NAIA Eligibility Center are 2 different entities and must be done separate. For more information please talk to your coach, Foothills Athletic Director (Mr. Romero), or the NCAA Coordinator (Mrs. Tammy Sutterby).
