National Club Baseball Association

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The National Club Baseball Association (NCBA) is the national body that governs club baseball at colleges and universities in the United States. Club teams are different from varsity teams in that the school doesn't completely sponsor the teams' expenses and the teams are not eligible to play in the NCAA's College World Series.

The NCBA was founded in 2000 to provide a national structure for the existing club teams. It structures the conferences, runs the NCBA College World Series (its national championship series), gathers playing statistics, assists teams in fundraising, and arranges for discounts on baseball clothing and equipment.

The NCBA operates as a for profit LLC with a sole proprietorship in the name of Greg "Sandy" Sanderson as President. Profit has increased at a steady rate since the inception of the league in 2000 with team membership increasing in each year. Many club sport governing bodies operate as non-profit groups in order to return the most benefit to member teams. League dues for the NCBA are $1,700 per season per team.

The two types of institutions that field club teams are schools that can't sponsor NCAA varsity baseball (often due to Title IX restrictions) and schools that do have a varsity team, but also have enough demand to field a second team.

Teams[edit]

The NCBA currently is divided into two divisions named Division I and II respectively. Division I is split up into eight regions with three conferences each. Division II is split up into eight districts with three conferences each with the exception of Districts VI and VII which only has two conferences each.

There are currently six schools (seven beginning in 2014-15) that field both Division I and II teams
