Please note that the Women's Water Polo Competitive Club started in the Spring of 1983 after NCAA Division II Swimming Championships, when the student-athletes were ready to transition from swimming to other sports, then formed it's first charter/membership in USA Water Polo/Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) for 1983-1984 Season. For those first few years the Women's Club was definitely a pace setter as they earned the right to compete in two of the first three National Collegiate Club Championships (NCCCs) as well as becoming the first USAFA Women's Team, Collegiate or Club, in winning a National Championship. As a point of reference, each of these team honors were instrumental in adding to then Capt Kemp's Head Swim Coaching accomplishments with his selection as the State of Colorado's Women's Coach of the Year award for 1985. Bold font shown in the Championship Columns above note Banners for those Years as Finalists or Champions, and Top Placing at NCCCs.


Also, note that Men's Water Polo Competitive Club was the predecessor of the USAFA Men's Varsity program, first appearance FALL 1971 (1971-1972 Season) which continues to this day. What we do know of the initial Men's Club Team is shown below:
