Each year, the NFCA's Leadoff Classics gather top teams from around the country for three days of highly competitive softball action at one site. The Division II and III Leadoff Classics will alternate every other year at various locations around the country chosen by their respective division’s membership, while the NAIA and Junior College Leadoff Classics will be similarly paired and alternate each year at the South Commons Complex in Columbus, Ga.

"It's like playing a national championship tournament right out of the gate." — Division III Leadoff participant
