What is the NCAAA?

The NCAAA offers its accredited P.A.C.E. program which evaluates, educates, implements and certifies appropriate NCAA academic, athletic and eligibility compliance standards for entire athletic organizations and high schools.

History of the NCAAA

The principles of the NCAAA were developed early at the turn of the century. While college athletics have exploded over the past twenty years, the feeder system to collegiate athletics has also moved to the forefront of national attention. While youth sports at the high school level will continue to play a key roll in athletics, the twenty first century has proven the roll of local club organizations are now a major factor in the transition phase. This changed concerned a group of college coaches, high school educators and parents as to the validation of local club organizations. Thus with the support of educational institutions the NCAAA was formed to help validate and advise local club organizations through the transition to the collegiate game.
