Thriving During a Pandemic

We Are Back!  – The Challenges, Struggles, and Determination
2020-21 Season Tribute

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the new normal of our society forced several shifts in our daily social lives, leaving our 83,000 NAIA student-athletes to wonder what the future would hold. As winter championships ended prematurely and spring sports came to a halt and then fall championships were postponed to spring, there was a definitive shift in what our world looked like for the foreseeable future.

Through the difficult times, the student-athletes of the NAIA came together to create a new focus on all of the positive things they were doing through the pandemic. The focus, called NAIA Together at the Core, showcased all the positive ways the NAIA navigated the world's current situation.

A look back through videos
