Membership Fees & Dues
MEMBERSHIP DUES AND OTHER FEES
Q: My institution is considering dropping one or more sport(s) for 2020-21, and NAIA membership requires a minimum of six championship sports. What happens if we drop below the six-sport minimum? (Updated 10/05/2020)
If an institution cancels all its sports for the entire 2020-21 school year, the national office will work through the COP and other groups to determine which fees would be required.
If the FCS is conducted with fewer than 16 teams, resulting in reduced overall travel expenses, a partial refund will be considered.
If the FCS is unable to be conducted in the spring, schools would be given the option of a refund or applying the payment to the 2021-22 school year.
A reduction in games played would not result in a change in the premium. The group policy is based on the number of student-athletes and the number of championships.
Q: Our institution has moved our fall sports to later in the academic year, and many (or all) of our students are taking coursework remotely and are not living on campus. If our coaches are supervising training sessions with student-athletes virtually, are they covered under the NAIA catastrophic insurance policy? (Updated 10/05/2020)
This only applies to the NAIA catastrophic insurance policy. Contact your insurance broker for questions regarding other insurance policies, such as basic athletic insurance purchased by the school.
The national office plans to delay sending sport fee invoices until later in the fall to accommodate the changing landscape.
The national office plans to delay sending drug education invoices until later in the fall. As in the past, if a school has a significant reduction in student-athletes from the previous year, a request for repricing can be submitted.
