NAIA to administer eligibility of all first-time student-athletes

The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) recently launched a new Web site for the new NAIA Eligibility Center. To access the site visit www.PlayNAIA.org. The NAIA Eligibility Center is responsible for determining the eligibility of first-time NAIA student-athletes and will begin taking registrations this September for any student interested in playing NAIA sports for the first-time in 2011-12 or after.

"NAIA colleges and universities award $450 million in financial aid to 60,000 student-athletes every year," said John Leavens, NAIA senior vice president for membership services. "Our institutions offer great opportunities to students interested in getting a college education with that small-college personal touch, and a chance to continue their athletic careers with a shot at one of our 23 national championships. We're excited to be able to get the word out to our nation's high school athletes about the opportunities that exist to play NAIA."
