As with other intercollegiate sports, most college softball in the United States is played under the auspices of the NCAA or the NAIA. The final rounds of the NCAA tournaments are known as the Women's College World Series (WCWS); one is held on each of the three levels of competition sanctioned by the NCAA.
The NCAA tournament has been largely dominated by Pacific-12 Conference teams, who have combined to win 21 of the 27 NCAA Division I championships through 2008, including 10 wins from UCLA and 8 from University of Arizona.
Over 600 NCAA member colleges are sponsors of women’s softball programs. The women’s softball championships are held in Divisions I through III.
A softball scholarship can cover many, sometimes all, of the costs associated with earning a university degree. In return, the student-athlete will represent the university in their respective sport and maintain a good level of academic performance.
