The Northern Pacific Conference was a name for two collegiate athletic conferences in the western United States. The first was for college baseball (1975–1981) and the second was a women's collegiate athletic conference made up of teams in Northern California, Oregon, and Washington. That league was formed in 1982, at the same time that the NCAA became the sole sponsor of major-college women's sports. Members had previously competed in the NorCal Conference and the northwest region of the AIAW. The Northern Pacific Conference met its demise in 1986-87, when the Pac-10 Conference began sponsoring women's sports.
