The GSAC has earned the NAIA Champions of Character Five-Star Conference Award for the 2012-13 sports season.

This distinction is bestowed on every conference in which 60 percent of the member institutions earn Champions of Character Five Star Institution status.  The Golden State Athletic Conference had 100 percent of its member schools make the grade.

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 the Champions of Character program, 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.
