About the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association
The Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (NIAA) is a private, non-profit organization (501c3) originally formed by the state’s secondary schools and their district superintendents. In essence, the NIAA is the governing body of high school athletics in the Silver State as recognized by the Nevada state legislature. It is important to note, however, that the NIAA does NOT receive state funding. The NIAA’s three revenue streams are corporate partnerships, event ticket sales and member school’s dues.
