ArbiterSports Partners with NAIA for Sports Official Training

Press Release

May 9, 2014

Sandy — ArbiterSports has signed a partnership agreement with the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) to become the official training and education solution for NAIA game officials in select sports. The partnership was approved by the Conference Commissioners Association and ratified by the Council of Presidents at the 73rd Annual NAIA National Convention in Kansas City, Mo.

Starting with the 2014-15 season, every NAIA official in the sports of men's and women's basketball, softball and baseball will be required to participate in the NAIA officiating training and education program via the ArbiterSports platform. The platform will give all officials access to NAIA-specific training on conduct in competition, information on NAIA rules modifications and standardized officials' education on NCAA rules. The NAIA uses NCAA playing rules in the listed sports. In 2015-16, the sports of football, volleyball and men's and women's soccer will be added to the program.

This is the first time the NAIA national office has established a national training program for NAIA game officials. Currently, there are approximately 6,600 officials working in the NAIA's 22 conferences, with two-thirds of those officials also working NCAA contests.

"ArbiterSports understands the importance of providing quality registration, eligibility, training and educational solutions for officials because it leads to a better game experience for all participants," said ArbiterSports President and CEO Jeff Triplette. "We are excited to now have the opportunity to help the NAIA improve its officiating program."
