The Conshohocken Athletic Club was a professional football team based in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania from 1914 until 1920, when the club's financial problems made it impossible to field a team. In the fall of 1921, the newly established Conshohocken Athletic Association took over sponsorship of the team. The new Association was formed as a community-based organization with the purpose of promoting and supporting outdoor athletics and had the full support of Conshohocken Athletic Club.

Conshohocken won the mythical Schuylkill County championship in 1914, 1915 and 1916, before laying claim to the eastern Pennsylvania championship in 1919.

Conshohocken had an annual Thanksgiving rivalry with the Norristown Billikens of Norristown, Pennsylvania; from 1914 to 1916, Conshohocken beat the Billikens in all three games.
