The PGF Recruiting Network is powered by NCSA Next College Student Athlete, the largest network for competitive softball players to meet college softball coaches.

The college softball scholarship process is complicated – and something you’re expected to do on top of all of your schoolwork and the demands of travel softball. Which sounds like more fun: reading the rules and regulations of college softball scholarships, or getting out of the dugout and nailing dingers in practice, games and tournaments.

Let us simplify the college softball recruiting process. NCSA helps softball players show off their skills to college coaches, identify roster openings and analyze how well a college softball program matches the school of their dreams.

Garland Cooper, our Director of Softball, played Division I softball at Northwestern University where she was a 3-time All-American, 3-time Big Ten Player of the Year and helped her team to two Women’s College World Series appearances, including a second place finish 2006. She played travel ball and grew up in California, but her recruiting process unexpectedly took her across the country into the midwest and the Big Ten. Because of her own experience, she is passionate about using her expertise around the sport and the recruiting process to help student-athletes find their perfect fit, and realize their dreams of playing softball at the next level.


Since 2000, NCSA has helped more than 83,624 athletes commit to a college — placing student-athletes at more 90 percent of U.S. colleges and universities. As a valued PGF player, you automatically receive a profile to connect with college softball coaches, which you can claim here.
