Sports College and University Governing Bodies NCAA Division II California Collegiate Athletic Association
Established in 1938, the 12-member league is home to some of the nation's finest Division II athletic programs: Cal Poly Pomona, Cal State Bakersfield, Cal State Dominguez Hills, Cal State L.A., Cal State, San Bernardino, Cal State Stanislaus, Chico State, UC Davis, UC San Diego, Grand Canyon, San Francisco State and Sonoma State. The CCAA sponsors seven women's and six men's sports. Fall sports include men's and women's cross country, men's and women's soccer and women's volleyball. Men's and women's basketball are the CCAA's winter offerings, and women's tennis, men's golf, men's and women's track & field, softball and baseball complete the spring season. CCAA members added four national championships to the league's Division II national-best NCAA Championships count in 2000-01. The CCAA has now claimed 137 NCAA Championships (95 men, 42 women), far and away the most of any Division II conference. On the men's side, CCAA members have brought home at least 10 titles in swimming & diving (23), wrestling (16), track & field (13), tennis (11) and baseball (10). CCAA institutions have been very successful in the 20-year history of NCAA women's athletics, having won 10 cross country, seven softball, six track & field and five volleyball national championships as well as 14 more in four other sports.
