“It’s more than competition.” The NIRSA Championship Series lives and breathes this statement. The Series is known for its outstanding athletic events where players, coaches, and spectators come from around the country to play and watch the regional and national events. It’s also known for the development opportunities it provides student officials and professional staff. You don’t want to miss the chance to send student officials and professional staff to this year’s national championships!

Institutional registration guarantees that an institution’s sports team, student officials, and university staff are part of the national championship! Being a part of these tournaments gives your institution’s teams, students, and staff the opportunity to be recognized on a national level.

Institutional registration comes in three different levels—Gold, Silver, and Bronze—each corresponding to a different degree of involvement in and recognition at the NIRSA national championships. More detailed information about the three levels—what they offer institutions, how much they cost, etc.—can be found on the NIRSA website.

The deadline to register for National Flag Football Institutional Registration is September 21. The deadline to register for National Basketball Institutional Registration is January 23, 2019.

The NIRSA Championship Series would like to recognize and thank the institutions that took advantage of institutional registration in 2017:


Silver: Georgia Southern University

Flag Football

Gold: University of Southern Mississippi

Silver: Georgia Southern University

Bronze: University of Maryland, College Park & Louisiana State University
