ROA Participating Institutions Reaches 40
The NAIA is excited to announce that 40 schools have submitted their student-athlete level data for analysis through Return on Athletics™ (ROA)! This marks significant growth from the initial eight schools that took part in the pilot program in 2017-18.
ROA data analytics will identify institutional opportunities to increase the value of athletics through:
- Year-over-year comparisons to assess athletics’ effectiveness in driving institutional goals
- Peer institution comparisons to identify potential options for growth and effectiveness
- A net revenue calculator that provides estimated revenue based on the number of athletes, discount rate, retention, and expenses
Detailed findings based on the data and the launch of our member-facing ROA tools will be shared at the NAIA National Convention, April 11-15, 2019. It’s not too late to submit ROA data and gain access to the analytics tools, though the process will not be completed prior to the convention.
