Association of Student-Athletes

Banner

The mission of the Association of Student-Athletes (ASA) is to serve as the voice of all NAIA student-athletes in the NAIA's governance. The ASA provides a platform for student-athletes to discuss issues of concern to them, offer feedback to NAIA membership, and propose legislation or policy changes, as appropriate. The ASA will serve as an advocacy group on behalf of NAIA student-athletes to enhance their collegiate athletics experience. Additionally, the ASA will offer its members the opportunity to develop their leadership skills as they represent and empower all NAIA student-athletes.
