NAIA RECRUITING

The NAIA recruiting rules are quite simple. There are no rules concerning the recruiting of prospective student athletes who are in high school or below. There are no recruiting calendars, dead periods, or contact restrictions. So if you are in a showcase and a coach comes up to speak with you about your performance or their college, ask if they are an NAIA school. If so, feel free to speak with them all you want. If they are part of the NCAA, say hello and ask them to call you later. NCAA coaches can only have a full conversation with you after your last game of the weekend.
