The Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA) is the organization which oversees interscholastic competition in the state of Nebraska at the high school level. The mission statement of the NSAA is:
|“||The public and non-public high schools of Nebraska voluntarily agreed to form the Nebraska School Activities Association for the following purposes:
High schools in Nebraska are assigned into classes that are determined by the size of the school's enrollment. From largest to smallest, Nebraska high school activity classes are:
- AA (used only in music)
- A1 (unofficial)
- A2 (unofficial)
- C – in certain activities, divided into:
- D – in certain activities, divided into:
The number of classes used for each activity varies by the number of participating schools and by the nature of the activity; football, volleyball, basketball, plays and speech are the only activities that are divided into six classes. An additional classification, D3, was used for 6-man football until that sport was dropped from NSAA oversight after the 1998 season.
Each activity has its own standards for classification. For example, a high school may compete in Class D1 for football, Class C2 for volleyball, and Class D for track and field.
