General Info

The original (NIAA) Nevada Interscholastic League was formed in 1922. It became affiliated with the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) in 1939. School administrators established the League in order to develop and enforce high school athletic welfare and safety standards, eligibility and amateurism policies, and ethical conduct and behavior policies that would compliment the academic work of students. The NIAA ensures that Nevada's student-athletes engage in pure competition under uniform regulations. The NIL became the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association in 1967. The first full-time salaried Executive Director was hired in 1974 and an office was established in Carson City. The NIAA office moved to Reno in 1997. As of September 2010, the NIAA will have 105 member schools divided into four classifications. The NIAA is responsible for sponsoring, directing and developing athletics and activities in Nevada's high schools. In addition, the NIAA oversees the Nevada Association of Student Councils (NASC).
