National Collegiate Boxing Association
|Headquarters||Colorado Springs, Colorado (under USA Boxing)|
|United States of America|
The National Collegiate Boxing Association (NCBA) was founded in 1976 as a non-profit, autonomous organization whose goal is to provide a safe, positive experience for student athletes pursuing the sport of boxing. The association falls under the auspices of USA Boxing. After 1960, the NCAA no longer sanctioned boxing.
NCBA member schools are encouraged to develop their instructional and intramural programs with emphasis on the teaching of fundamental novice boxing skills. In order to be eligible to participate in an NCBA member school, a collegiate boxer must be a full-time student at an accredited institution at which he/she is attending for graduation.

- Each boxer who wins a final match earns 5 points for their team.
