NCAA Women's Volleyball Championship


NCAA Women's Volleyball Championship

The NCAA has contested team championships in women's volleyball since 1981. The following is a list of the champions of each division with their record for the year in which they won the championship, and the runner up, city, site and other final four participants for division I. From 1971 through 1982, before the NCAA governed women's collegiate athletics, the AIAW held the AIAW volleyball championship tournaments.

In the NCAA Women's Volleyball Championship, separate tournaments are conducted for Division I, Division II, and Division III institutions. In the NCAA Men's Volleyball Championship, there is no official divisional structure. All teams, regardless of their divisional affiliation, are eligible to compete for the men's NCAA championship. This is different mainly because there are far more NCAA member schools offering women's volleyball than the men's game.
