While the NCAA might be right for some student-athletes, it might not be right for everyone. Enter NAIA.


  • The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), headquartered in Kansas City, Mo., is a governing body of small athletics programs that are dedicated to character-driven intercollegiate athletics.
  • Since 1937, the NAIA has administered programs and championships in proper balance with the overall college educational experience.
  • The student-athlete is the center of all NAIA experiences. Each year more than 65,000 student-athletes have the opportunity to play college sports at NAIA member institutions.
  • As of 2018, NAIA has 220 institutions that offer women’s volleyball and 34 institutions for men.
