The NCAA Division III Women's Volleyball Championship is the annual championships in women's volleyball from teams in Division III contested by the NCAA each winter since 1981.

History[edit]

From 1970 through 1980, before the NCAA governed women's collegiate athletics, the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women alone conducted the women's collegiate volleyball championships.

Volleyball 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 AIAW 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.

There is also a NCAA Men's Division III Volleyball Championship for men's volleyball teams in Division III which was only established in 2012, the newest NCAA-sponsored championship.

Champions[edit]

See Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women Champions for the Division III volleyball champions from 1979 to 1981. NOTE: In 1981 there were both NCAA and AIAW champions.
