2023 Women’s Collegiate Club Atlantic Division Schedule

BRIDGEPORT, Pa. — The Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) releases the 2023 Women’s Collegiate Club Atlantic Division schedule.

Comprised of Georgetown University, James Madison University, the University of Maryland, the University of North Carolina, the University of Virginia and Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University (Virginia Tech), the division will contest its eighth season of competition in 2023.

In the history of the division, James Madison (2005), Duke University (2015), Virginia (2016, 2017, 2019, 2022) and Virginia Tech (2018) have combined to capture the previous Atlantic Division crowns. An Atlantic Division champion was not crowned during either the 2020 or 2021 seasons due to the COVID-19 pandemic terminating the completion and start of the campaigns, respectively.

Further, Maryland (2002) and Virginia (2003) claimed the Mid-Atlantic Division title prior to the one-year formation of the Atlantic Division in 2005.  The group reformed in 2015 following the split of the Mid-Atlantic Division into the Mid-Atlantic and Atlantic Divisions.

Competition begins on Saturday-Sunday, February 18-19, at Maryland in College Park, Md., with 12 games.  The regular season concludes nearly two months later on Saturday-Sunday, April 15-16, at James Madison in Harrisonburg, Va., as the teams meet to contest another 12-game event to establish the final seeding for the nine-game Atlantic Division Championship on Saturday-Sunday, April 22-23, at Virginia in Charlottesville, Va.

The victor of the Atlantic Division Championship earns the group’s automatic berth to the 2023 Women’s National Collegiate Club Championship on Friday-Sunday, May 5-7, at a site to be determined.
