The Coastal Collegiate Sports Association (CCSA) is a progressive NCAA Division I conference dedicated to the enhancement of opportunities for students.

Founded in 2008 as the Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association, the CCSA has always built championship athletic opportunities for college students. The CCSA was founded jointly by the Atlantic Sun, Big South, Mid-Eastern Athletic (MEAC), and the Southern Conferences to provide a championship opportunity for swimming and diving students at their member institutions. Over the next decade, the CCSA grew to include members as far north as Newark, NJ and west as San Antonio.

In the summer of 2015, the CCSA announced an expansion of championship opportunities with the addition of Beach Volleyball as it’s first sport addition since formation of the league. With the addition, came a change of name to the Coastal Collegiate Sports Association and the naming of Mike Hagen as Executive Director. The CCSA was one of only five conferences to sponsor Beach Volleyball in its first year as a championship sport in the NCAA. With the addition comes expanded opportunities for students pursuing athletics.

The CCSA is dedicated to the students who compete in its championships and their success in the classroom, in the field of competition, and life after graduation.
