HistoryEdit

In 1966 (55 years ago) (1966), the USCAA was founded as the National Little College Athletic Association (NLCAA), primarily to sponsor a national basketball tournament for small colleges and junior colleges.[2]

In the 1970s and through the 1980s, as the NLCAA, the USCAA began adding more sports.[2]

In 1989, the NLCAA changed its name to the National Small College Athletic Association (NSCAA).[2]

In 2001, the USCAA adopted its current name.[2]

SportsEdit

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

Post–season national championships are held in all sports except football, which has few participating teams.[1]
