On March 13, 2017, in Bylaws Proposals, by Jen Saab

Amend Bylaws Article V, Section B, Item 17 as follows:

  1. Scrimmage: A competition against competitors not identified with the institution when:

a.  The competition is not listed or is noted as a scrimmage on the institutional schedule; and

b.  No scores or statistics are reported by either the NAIA institution(s).

Scrimmages shall not be allowed in the following intercollegiate sports:  cross country, golf, swimming and diving, indoor and outdoor track and field, and wrestling.

Students must be certified as eligible prior to participating in a scrimmage. Seasons of competition will not be charged to students who participate only in scrimmages. Transfer students shall be governed by the association under which they competed.

Intent: To limit responsibility to the participating NAIA institution(s) and its reporting of scores or statistics for consideration of whether a contest meets the definition of a scrimmage.
