The NCAA Division II Women's Volleyball Championship is the annual championship contested by the NCAA to determine the national champion of Division II women's collegiate volleyball. It has been held annually since 1981, typically played in December after the fall regular season (the men's championship, conversely, is held in the spring).[1]

The most successful team has been Concordia–Saint Paul with eight titles, who is also the current champion, winning their eighth, in 2016, in only ten years.

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 National Collegiate Volleyball Championship for men's volleyball teams in Division I and Division II seeing as there are far fewer men's programs than women's.
