On March 1, 2003, Associação Atlética Coruripe was founded.[1]

In 2003, the club won its first title, the Campeonato Alagoano Second Division, after beating Sete de Setembro 3-1, at Gerson Amaral Stadium. Coruripe was also promoted to the following year's first division.[2]

In 2004, the club was Campeonato Alagoano's runner-up. In the final the club was defeated by Corinthians Alagoano. On May 5, Coruripe won the first leg 3-2, but on May 9 the club was defeated 2-0.[3] The club competed in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série C for the first time in that year. Coruripe, however, finished in the third position, being eliminated in that stage. The club finished only ahead of Corinthians Alagoano, but behind of Porto (PE) and Itacuruba.[4]

In 2005, the club was again Campeonato Alagoano's runner-up. The club was defeated by ASA, which won both stages of the competition (the first stage, called Copa Maceió, and the second stage, named Copa Alagoas).[5] Coruripe has also competed in the Copa do Brasil in that year. However, the club was eliminated in the first round by Fortaleza.[6] Coruripe has also competed in that year's Campeonato Brasileiro Série C. The club reached the competition's third stage.
