The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) athletes, coaches and fans will return to the Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC) Aquatic Center March 5-8 for the 2014 NAIA Men's and Women's Swimming and Diving National Championships. OCCC is seeking volunteers for this event.

Volunteers are needed in the following areas:
• March 5-8 - NAIA 2014 Hospitality
• March 6-8 NAIA Event Ticket Takers
• March 6-8 – NAIA Event Timers

The 58th Annual Men's and 34th Annual Women's NAIA Swimming and Diving National Championships attract approximately 350 top NAIA swimmers to Oklahoma City each year. This event marks the third straight year the OCCC Aquatic Center has served as the host venue.

The NAIA is the governing body for athletics programs at its nearly 300 colleges and universities throughout the United States and Canada. Since 1937, the NAIA has administered programs and championships in proper balance with the overall educational experience. In 2000, the NAIA reaffirmed its purpose to enhance the character-building aspects of sport. Through Champions of Character, the NAIA seeks to create an environment in which every student-athlete, coach, official and spectator is committed to the true spirit of competition through five core values: integrity, respect, responsibility, sportsmanship and servant leadership.
