Established in 2008, the Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association (CCSA) was originally developed by four regional Division I conferences — the Atlantic Sun Conference, Big South Conference, Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, and the Southern Conference — to create a centralized home for their members with swimming and diving programs.
In October 2015, the CCSA added the newly recognized NCAA sport of beach volleyball and rebranded itself the Coastal Collegiate Sports Association.
With the addition of two new members in 2016, the CCSA now has 23 member schools, representing ten states (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia) and the District of Columbia.
- UMBC and VMI will leave the CCSA after the 2016–17 season for the America East Conference (already home to UMBC's other sports), which will add men's swimming & diving for the 2017–18 season. VMI will become an America East associate member in both men's and women's swimming & diving.
