Welcome to GCU Club Softball

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 positive team environment, developing leadership skills and building friendships. Led by Lopes’ Club Head Coach Lindsey Collins, the GCU Club Softball team plays a full spring regular season schedule (usually 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 2020-21 is to reach the championship game of the NCSA World Series for the second time in five years. The goal off the field is to continue to develop students that will be leaders in whatever field they choose.

She attended the University of Arizona from 1998 to 2001.  In her senior season, not only was Collins the starting catcher for the Wildcats’ Women’s College World Series team, she hit the home run that made the difference in Arizona’s 1-0 win over UCLA to win the national championship.

After college, she turned pro, playing two years in the National Pro Fastpitch League, and lead the New York/New Jersey Juggernauts to a NPFL World Series Title in her second year with the team.
