Atlantic Soccer Conference (ASC) was a college athletic conference which only sponsored men's soccer. The conference participated in the NCAA's Division I and its champion did not receive an automatic bid to the annual NCAA Men's Soccer Championship Tournament. It was founded in 2000 with nine colleges and universities as its members but disbanded following the 2011 season when its membership dwindled to three members.
