National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics

www.naia.org
Throughout its history, the NAIA has provided strong leadership for all aspects of intercollegiate sports. Since its introduction of intercollegiate championship basketball in 1937, the NAIA has maintained the highest standards while administering first-rate athletics programs.

In the past decade, presidents of NAIA institutions have assumed a position of responsible leadership. The NAIA’s Council of Presidents is comprised of 32 college presidents from all regions of the United States.

With its major emphasis on educational development, it was natural for the NAIA to further strengthen academic eligibility requirements in the mid-’80s. All NAIA participating student-athletes must maintain a certain grade-point-average while accumulating credit hours for a declared academic degree.

During the ’90s, the membership voted to institute affiliated conference and regional groupings as a means of qualification for national championships.

Since 1937, the NAIA has administered athletics programs and championships in proper balance with the overall collegiate educational experience. Serving higher education in this manner is a responsibility the NAIA does not take lightly. It is a relationship built on confidence and trust – a relationship strengthened year after year. The future of 57,000 young people is too important to handle any other way.

Golden State Athletic Conference

www.gsacsports.org
Affiliated with the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), the nation’s oldest collegiate athletic association, the GSAC was established in 1986 by like-minded Christian college institutions, purposely aligned to be similar in enrollment, academics, athletics, scholarship and student life.

GSAC teams have won more than 44 national championships and numerous athletes have won individual NAIA titles. Conference schools consistently have teams ranked in the NAIA’s Top 25 in all sports and compete regularly for regional and national titles.

In addition, GSAC schools have hosted NAIA national championship events, giving the conference great exposure and the opportunity to showcase the members attractive locations, from the southern California coasts to the central California valley.

The GSAC sponsors championships in six men’s sports (baseball, basketball, cross country, soccer, tennis, and track & field) and seven women’s sports (basketball, cross country, soccer, softball, tennis, track & field and volleyball).
