NAIA Men Fall Rankings Update, and Deadlines

Oct. 2008

Hello Coach,

This year for the Men's NAIA Rankings there will be a new rankings procedure.  The Men's Committee is requesting that all submissions of Teams, Singles and Doubles players that want to be considered for rankings be made on a standardized form.  The forms are due to be submitted to the Men's NAIA Rankings committee, by Friday, November 14th, by 12 noon (your local time).

(The Women's NAIA Rankings Committee will be doing a different rankings process this year, they will be doing online submissions of results instead.)

We have included below Adobe Acrobat forms (for hand written / fax submission) and Microsoft Excel spreadsheets (for email submission).  If you are comfortable with using excel, the spreadsheet will probably help save time by not having to re-enter records for the next rankings period.  You only have to submit forms for your team or players who you wish to be considered for rankings.
