NAIA Showcase
 
An individual sport showcase is a one-day, one-stop event for prospective student-athletes and their parents to connect with NAIA schools. The NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) is the only college athletics association that offers official events for prospective student-athletes to showcase their skills on the field in front of NAIA coaches. The 2015 NAIA Showcase series will be held in the K.C. metro area, includes nine half-day events for baseball, men's and women's basketball, football, men's and women's soccer and softball. Men's and women's lacrosse will be held in the St. Louis metro area.

Our goals are simple:  

  1. Give student-athletes a chance to learn about the opportunities to play college sports in the NAIA and to connect with NAIA coaches
     
  2. Provide student-athletes and parents information about academic programs and $500 million in scholarships offered by the more than 250 NAIA colleges and universities.
