The Republican Boloball Association (RBA) is the governing body of the sport of boloball within the New Republic's borders. Its board of trustees decides if any rules need to be changed and approves of any incoming teams. Its chairman Roga McBea was responsible for the sport's introduction to the New Republic.

The RBA was started by New Republican citizen, Roga McBea, former manager of the IBL Season one Champion Dorin Sultans. Roga McBea saw an abscence of a large sports league in the New Republic and created the RBA as a way for all Republican citizens to complete through friendly competition. With the success of the IBL during his time in the Galactic Empire, Roga believed a similar system could work in the New Republic. With the approval of the morale department of the NR, ARGH!!!, the RBA was created on Y15 D138.


The type of boloball used in the RBA is known colloquially as "Republican-rules" or "Rebel-rules" boloball and uses a white and black boloball with petagons and hexagons covering the ball. Other rules are similar to that of the IBL such as the field dementions and number of players permitted on the field. Three points are awarded when a team wins, one point for a draw and zero points when a team loses a match. The RBA divides its history into seasons because sponsors can change season-to-season.
