The GCU Club Softball program offers an opportunity for students to enhance their college experience and athleticism by being a part of a collegiate competitive softball team. GCU Club Softball athletes practice and compete in a team environment, representing GCU, developing leadership skills and building friendships. Led by Lopes’ Club Head Softball Coach Lindsey Collins, the GCU Club Softball team plays a full spring regular season schedule (with preseason tournaments during the fall), and competes for championships in the National Club Softball Association (NCSA) as part of the Pacific Region South Conference. The goal on the field for 2018-19 is to reach the championship game of the NCSA World Series for the second time in three years; the goal off the field is to continue to develop students who will be leaders in whatever field they pursue.
