Let's see if there is enough interest in this "lost division" to make it interesting.

When will the NAIA be a Championship sport for the NAIA? I understand that it says 50 programs must be present right now its mid 30's - but Swimming is listed an it only has about 30 programs?

The NAIA has updated its list for 2017-18 and has 34 men's lax teams. Johnson & Wales-Denver is listed but this will be their final year before moving to D3. My belief is if the NCAA or NAIA does not have a school on the list of sports sponsorship then that team is a club team. By that measure, I would say College of Idaho is club. However, I have found some possible errors on the NCAA D2 lists where active varsity teams have not been included. I am a D2 person and follow it very closely while I only somewhat check in on NAIA activity.

Thanks for the info Lee. I would like to see NAIA get more coverage. There are lots of good teams and hard working programs.

Anyone know what's going on with St. Andrews? Looks like their coach left mid season and the soccer asst coach took over the rest. No coach currently listed. Is this a vacancy or are they going to close up shop once and for all :confusion-shrug:

1. Yes my son plays NAIA.
2. I am an HS coach
3. I feel the NAIA gives players another option and most of the teams offer athletic money along with academic money.

The NAIA will have 34 teams according to the NAIA web site.
34 teams carry a min of 20 players that means 680 players get the chance to play 4 more years.

My son's team Missouri Valley played Rockhurst this year and lost by 1 in tight game. They scrimmaged Maryville and MoVal control play in the scrimmage. His team has over 40 players.
The goal is to the grow the sport and I feel the NAIA is another avenue for high school players to consider.

MOVAL still has not hired officially a good coach, hopefully we hear by next week.

SAU has placed program on hold, will take a year to recruit after hiring a new coach. Here is the report from the Local Paper there. No word from school officially however. This was a once proud program. Not sure what happened, but seems like it has come with a drop in enrollment as well. This could be a good move, hire a guy, give him a year to stabilize program, get 18-20 recruits first year, 8-10 years after and get program back up to 35. It seems as if they would not have fielded a team this year due to lack of recruiting, etc...

Tough news to take coming out of St. A's. There has to be a few more facts that arem't in play for us common folk. But if they but in place a hungry Coach that knows how to recruit, AND the school is serious about rebuilding there many be hope. At least they aren't scrapping the team outright.

If the MVC hire is true than the other KCAC teams/coaches should be doing cartwheels over this hire. Coach Totaro's record over 4 years 62-11 with about 40 kids on the roster. Coach Young's record over the past 3 years 3-41 with about 15 kids on the roster. Questionable hire.

My thinking exactly, had the opportunity to talk with a good amount of NAIA coaches and the collective thought is, "huh?"

Heard Coach Totaro is back in the JUCO ranks where he started. Congratulations, his recruiting prowess should be an asset to any team. HCC Owls star will be rising.

I agree the selection of the old Oglethorpe coach, Coach Young, is not the "sexiest" coach out there. But with out a doubt from seeing him on the sidelines as well as talking to former players, he is going to bring discipline to the much needed "huligan" style team at Missouri Valley.
So I dont think cartwheels will be dont with the KCAC cause when a team with talent then has discipline is when they could be a dominant team. Could be the ying to their yang

Opinions vary. I doubt that the new MVC coach will be an upgrade over what they had.

1. MoVal was not a team of hooligans. They had issues just like all teams but there a great kids on that team that can play.
2. Discipline is nothing without trust and respect. If Coach Young cannot develop relationships with his players the discipline will not matter. I hope and this is my opinion a great coach understands that coaching is about the relationships and trust that you develop with your athletes. If Coach Young is smart he will take a look at MoVal and notice all the good things that Coach Totaro and the team have done over the last 4 years and take that and mix in his style. The worst thing he could do again in my opinion would be to come in and try to reinvent the system. He has some great tools at MoVal and he if can recruit this could be great spot for him. I wish him the best as I think he has the players to make another run at the NAIA title in 2018 and if he can recruit, he can continue to develop what is already a great program at MoVal.
