Postseason Participation Undeclare Form
If an institution wishes to undeclare participation in postseason, this form must be completed to fulfill the written notification requirement. You will receive a copy of your submission by email as confirmation.
Article I, Section L in the NAIA Official/Policy Handbook:
Should the institution's chief executive officer determine that an earlier declared sport team does not meet institutional standards to participate in any postseason competition, written notification of this decision must be sent to the NAIA National Office at least four weeks prior to the beginning of postseason competition. Failure to adhere to these procedures shall require the selected institutional team to fulfill its obligation of participating in postseason play to its conclusion.
If an institution submits notification to remove itself from the obligation of participation in the postseason for a particular sport for three consecutive seasons, the institution will be placed on NAIA suspension in that sport for the following academic year. Suspension does not allow the institution to participate in postseason events in that sport.
