The United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) is a national organization for the intercollegiate athletic programs of 81 mostly small colleges, community colleges and junior colleges, across the United States. The USCAA holds 12 National Championship tournaments in 7 sports.[1]


The USCAA was founded in 1966 as the National Little College Athletic Association, primarily to sponsor a national basketball tournament for small colleges and junior colleges. It began adding more sports in the 1970s and 1980s. In 1989, it changed its name to the National Small College Athletic Association. It adopted its current name in 2001.[2]


The USCAA sanctions competition in seven men's and five women's sports:[1]




Post–season national championships are held in all but football and wrestling, both of which have few participating teams. A USCAA national invitational meet is sponsored in wrestling.
