COMPETING IN A CHAMPIONSHIP
A completed NAIA drug testing consent form is required for every student-athlete on a post-season roster. The athlete will not be able to participate in post-season play unless his or her drug testing consent form has been completed and is on file with the institution.
For sports that typically submit their post-season roster online, an acknowledgement statement has been added regarding the consent forms. By checking a box, the submitter is certifying that all student-athletes on the roster have a signed consent form on file with the institution.
It has been standard practice for cross country and track and field teams to submit post-season rosters manually. This process will now require the NAIA Certification of Consent Form be included with the manual submission documentation, certifying that all student-athletes on the roster have a signed consent form on file with the institution.
