The NIRSA Brand

Our Name: What does it stand for?

We are NIRSA: Leaders in Collegiate Recreation.

Please refer to us as that, or simply “NIRSA.”

The acronym “NIRSA” was formerly an abbreviation for “National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association.” Our Association has evolved beyond these five words, so we no longer refer to ourselves with that name. Now we are NIRSA: Leaders in Collegiate Recreation.
