The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) is, just like the NCAA, an American university sport association. About 250 universities are covered by the NAIA.
Compared to the NCAA, the schools that have joined the NAIA are often private universities and are generally somewhat smaller in terms of student body size. Nevertheless, there are certainly universities that have teams at least as good, or even better, than certain NCAA Division 1, 2 & 3 universities. Thus, an NAIA university also provides good opportunities for athletes to develop to their full potential.
