The Women's Division III NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships are college championship events in the USA. The event is held annually following the winter regular season, and it consists of individual and team championships in a range of events in women's swimming and diving for swimmers from Division III universities. The meets take place in a 25 yard pool.

In every year of contention, the women's championship has been held at the same time and venue as the NCAA Men's Division III Swimming and Diving Championships.

History[edit]

Swimming was one of twelve women's sports added to the NCAA championship program for the 1981-82 school year, as the NCAA engaged in battle with the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women for sole governance of women's collegiate sports. The AIAW continued to conduct its established championship program in the same twelve (and other) sports; however, after a year of dual women's championships, the NCAA conquered the AIAW and usurped its authority and membership.[1]
