The National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) is an association of Christian universities, colleges, and Bible colleges in the United States and Canada whose mission is "the promotion and enhancement of intercollegiate athletic competition with a Christian perspective."[1] The national headquarters is located in Greenville, South Carolina. The NCCAA was formed in 1968. For the 2013-2014, the NCCAA lists 111 members, 69 of which participate in Division I and 42 in Division II.[2] Many teams in the NCCAA are also in other athletics associations, including NCAA, NAIA and ACCA.[3]

The association's sports for men are baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, soccer, tennis, and track and field (indoor/outdoor). Women's sports are basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track and field (indoor/outdoor), and volleyball. The NCCAA has discontinued men's volleyball and wrestling.[4]

The Victory Bowl is the organization's football bowl game game between NCCAA teams that did not qualify for either NCAA or NAIA playoffs.
