As a college athlete, in general, you are either part of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) or National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). Each come with their own set of rules, schools, budgets, and more. With media the way it is these days, the NCAA tends to grab the most attention while the NAIA is somewhat of an afterthought.

Quick NCAA vs. NAIA breakdown

The NAIA "has 50,000 student-athletes participating at nearly 300 member colleges and universities throughout the United States and Canada . . . it offers 23 championships in 13 sports" according to NAIA.org .
The NCAA "oversees 89 championships in 23 sports...there are more than 400,000 student-athletes competing in three divisions at over 1,000 colleges and universities within the NCAA" according to NCAA.org .
Why choose the NAIA?

As it is with all things in life, it's important to check out all of your options. It's possible all along you might have been planning to head to a NCAA school, but what about NAIA?

The NAIA can offer just as good as an education and athletic experience than the NCAA and one of my favorite parts about it is, way less restrictions during the recruitment process. Sign me up!

Why NAIA might be the way to go

Competition: If you don't think you can cut it at a NCAA Division I school, NAIA athletics are compared to Division II-level playing. You would have a good shot of starting on an NAIA team instead of being benched on a NCAA Division I team.
Flexibility. The NAIA is not as strict as the NCAA. The NAIA allows its schools/conferences to handle their own rules and budgets. This is a great point because schools and conferences can work with what they've got instead of conforming to a set of rules for the entire NAIA organization.
Academic success. The NAIA is completely centered around the total meaning of being a student-athlete. You have to be academically responsible, moving towards completing your degree with reasonable grades in order to even think about playing.
Size. In general, NAIA schools are smaller, which in itself can be a plus for your academics, social life, and athletics. It's easier to not get lost in the mix in these schools.
Recruitment. NCAA has rules for rules. There are rules for each division and each sport for each high school year that you are being recruited. It can be exhausting. The NAIA of course has rules, but they are not as intricate and also allow for a more personalized process. The member services PDF provided by the NAIA says it best: “recruitment process provides many opportunities to get to know potential students and meaningfully evaluate the institutional fit.” Visit NAIA.org to learn the nitty-gritty about their recruitment.
At the end of the day, the NAIA is probably never going to be as "glamorous" as the NCAA, but it is no less of a choice when choosing which school to attend. Neither association has an effect on the education you will receive or how much of an amazing time you'll have playing your sport. If anything, they are both in existence to make sure that you have the best possible experience, athletically and academically.

NJCAA (from the perspective of a non US citizen but makes the point):

The NJCAA is the baby of all the divisions in the US, however it is not something to be rejected in the slightest. NJCAA schools are only 2 years long. You go to these THEN you transfer to a 4 year institute (NCAA, NAIA). The level of soccer is often on par with NAIA and NCAA Division 2.

This is a great route for players looking to get higher scholarship money, but who also have lower standard of academics. It is essentially a great way of getting in the door and being seen. Coaches from NCAA D1, D2 and NAIA levels would rather take a player from NJCAA then from outside of the US (like you are right now). This is because they can see you in the college sports setting, but see how your academics are doing within the US system.

TLI 05 had a great year. Their season results are posted on their Facebook page. They finished their season as runner-up at Pony Nationals. I would agree that they are far more advanced fundamentally.

Why don't you mention where your team was during the 10 team nationals.

Why does that need to be mentioned? Obviously to take a cheap shot at a bunch of 10 year olds. What team you with? What Nationals you play?

USSSA Nationals had 30 teams, but half of them were very weak teams not worth traveling to Maryland to play. Of the better teams that TLI 05 played and that were at USSSA Nationals, TLI 05 already beat the USSSA National Champion Cobras (best overall 10U team this year), beat the 5th place Vienna Stars twice, beat the 9th place Outlaws, beat the 9th place Bluefire and beat the 13th place Cannons, and on and on.

TLI 05 also beat every quality team they played last year on Long Island multiple times.

05 Banshees and Loudoun Liberty were at PONY Nationals and were some of the top 10U teams seen all year. Beat them too.

But that was 10U softball. Stop worrying about what TLI 05 did. I’d recommend focusing on your team and your training. You are gonna need it at 12U… unless you want to beat up local Long Island teams all year.

Good luck this season.

Really good teams don't come on here and talk about themselves. As a member of your org, this is not a forum for you to stick your chest out. It reflects on all of us. Just play.

Why are organizations deceptive when they list their college committs when some of the girls aren't even going to play at the college?
