To compete at these events, Schools/Students participant must be registered with the NLAA.

Membership Benefits

Membership/Affiliation in the NLAA allows an athlete to compete in our sanctioned events. Every sport organization pays insurance as a corporate body on behalf of event organizers and athletes in case of legal liability or mishaps. Sanction fees and membership fees help to cover these costs and ensure that people will be willing to volunteer their time.

There are opportunities to benefit from courses and clinics -- as an athlete, official, or coach. The NLAA also supervises events to ensure that rules are followed and criteria maintained on an even basis throughout the province as possible. The NLAA also supervises Provincial Events and Road Running, Track and Field, and Cross-Country Championships.
