The NAIA national office recently announced that they “…intend to proceed with our winter championship dates and locations as scheduled.” This decision was based on a survey of NAIA athletic directors and presidents, as well as input from winter host sites.

Start dates for winter sport seasons will be left up to the discretion of colleges and conferences, as requested by 74% of the AD’s and presidents surveyed. Also, the national office “…is not restricting practice or competition during the holiday break in an effort to allow institutions to manage the season in a way that works best for them.”
