The Association Club was a boxing club in San Francisco's Mission District during the four-round era (1914-24). It staged regular weekly shows on Wednesday nights throughout this period. It often had as many as seven or eight bouts on the program. It was the starting point for most Bay Area boxers, who would advance on to programs at Dreamland Rink, after establishing themselves at the Association Club. The promoter at this club was Olympic Gold Medalist Al Young.

The Association Club discontinued as San Francisco's Wednesday night club, after Young moved his operations to National Hall in 1923.
