NCAA, NAIA Divisions

Post by achr.. » Fri, 06 Dec 1996 04:00:00


Does anyone know where I can get a list showing which Universities/Colleges
belong to NCAA and which belong to NAIA.  I would also like to have it
broken down by division.

Thanks...

I have been working on such a list and it is by no means complete. My
list includes on the schools that have a web site and that I have had
time to locate. Feel free to check it out and send my any other schools
that you might know. The address is www.ipt.com/texasasa/colleges.html.

If anyone knows of a school that is not listed, I will be glad to add it
if they will let me know. Currently I have the policy that only the
"offical" sites are listed.

Well, so much for my proof reading. The correct address should have been
www.ipt.com/texasasa/college.htm. This should be htm not html.

windmill publishing has a book called Playing at the Collegiate Level,
this book list all of the colleges and each division. 708) 377-7917.  Hope
this helps.  It is a good book to help any player get ready for college.

Aradi's Guide, available from Windmill Pub. or Collegiate Softball

Has anyone heard that the NCAA will come out with their own rulebook for
1997? I have not seen a copy of the book as of yet and at our college
umpire clinic in So. California, Jack Aten (our Assignor) made no mention
of any NCAA specific rules. In previous years, we have used ASA rules with
the college modifications listed in the appropriate section of the ASA
rulebook.  Comments or updated info. anyone?

Thanks,

    Deb,
          The secretary of a college assigning group here in Mass.
told me that there would indeed be an NCAA rulebook this year.  But
like you he has not seen or heard anything specific.

NCAA umpires, I heard, will be trained by the NCAA and no longer by the ASA
as well. This is one of a long list of steps the NFCA is going to take to
attempt to wrest NGB status away from ASA. NFCA leader Lacy Lee Baker
(Missouri coach Jay Miller's wife) lied to me about this. She insisted that
her group recognizes ASA as the National Governing Body, but NCAA and NFCA
actions show otherwise.

Deb,

The NCAA Rulebook is at the printer and will be available the first of
Jan. You can order the book by calling 913/339-1906. All NCAA games this
spring will be played under these new rules.

The NCAA could have saved itself a lot of time and money by making a rule
book with one sentence in it:

"The NCAA recognizes the Amateur Softball Association as the National
Governing Body and shall use ASA rules."

        Yikes!
        The NCAA rule book will become available in early January! Games
begin in February!
        How will umpires be made aware of the new rulebook?
        Will there be some kind of certification process?
        Is there some reason there has not been a 6-18 month period
between the publishing of a new rulebook and its first use in order to
ensure a smooth transition?
        If the rules are virtually identical to the ASA with NCAA
modification rulebook, which would be the only reason a phase-in period
would be unnecessary, then why did we need to go through this in the first
place?

   Craig:  These are great questions!  I'm new to college softball,
having just done my first 6 or 7 games this fall, and I'm completely
puzzled by the need for the NCAA to write its own rulebook when
the ASA rules are so well-established.  Since there is (to my
knowledge) NO NCAA umpire certification program, I wonder if this
is the first step towards establishing a distinct class of NCAA
umpires (which baseball has had for years) and taking college
umpiring out of the hands of local umpire organizations.
   Deb - any thoughts on this?

There is a new rulebook for NCAA's Softball in 1997.  I (Mike) called the
NCAA  
a few weeks ago and spoke to (notes not at hand) who told me that the  
new rulebook is to be published mid-Dec (that's today :-) ).  I sent a  
letter and check to:

        NCAA Publishing
        P.O. Box 7347
        Overland Park, Kansas  66207-0347
        (913) 339-1900

Publication: Women's Softball Rules ($4, December, SR 97)

They haven't sent the check back, and I'm not sure whether they cashed  
it yet, either, so can't shed any more light on whether the rulebook is  
available.

Mike (from Florida)>

Note from Debbi-  apparantly per Emily Alexander, it has not been let
known by NCAA how or when the rulebooks will be issued to the college
Umpires.  It further is not known how rule interpretation questions from
coaches and officials will be addressed in 1997.  Perhaps Emily will post
this information to rec.sport.softball and on rec.sport.officiating when
the decision(s) are made.
