NIRSA Championship Series

It’s more than competition

NIRSA Championship Series

NEW!

Be sure to check out our new Student Officials Development page for resources — and how you can contribute.

The NIRSA Championship Series gives college recreational sports participants an opportunity to compete, coordinate, officiate, and connect with skilled peers from other schools and take all the benefits of recreational competition to a higher level.

And it’s more than just competition, the NIRSA Championship Series is also a platform for professional development, as up-and-coming professionals build skills and engage in all levels of learning through their programming, staff, official, and volunteer positions. The passion of these leaders drives the exceptional execution of our professionally organized tournaments, which propels the experiences and growth opportunities of participants.

The rich environment of inclusive competition, sportsmanship, and professional development—from participants to fans to volunteers—supports communities of health and wellness, which is what NIRSA is all about.

The NIRSA Championship Series is under the direction of the NIRSA Services Corporation.
