Sponsoring a Varsity Sport Un-declare Form

Sponsoring a Varsity Sport Un-declare Form

As noted in the NAIA Handbook (NAC Policy Article XII, Section D): “The NAIA National Office must be notified in writing should an institution officially drop a sport during a season. Contracted contests that are dropped after August 10 for fall sports, October 10 for winter sports, and January 10 for spring sports are subject to the awarding of forfeits.”

Please complete all required fields. You will be emailed a copy of your answers as verification of your submission. The National Office will then email your institution a copy of your updated Declaration of Intent form as confirmation.

If an institution submits notification to un-declare from sponsoring a varsity sport, the institution is still removing itself from the obligation of participation in the postseason. Thus, policies surrounding un-declaring from postseason apply when deciding to officially drop a varsity sport (i.e. automatic berths, DOI violations, etc.).

If an institution drops a varsity sport for three consecutive years, they will be placed on postseason suspension in that sport for the following academic year.
