The NFCA's Leadoff Classics gather top collegiate and high school teams from around the country for 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. Additionally, we currently endorse high school tournaments in Texas, California, Florida, Georgia and Nebraska.
