ESPN.com/USA Softball Collegiate Top 25 Poll

During the NCAA Division I Softball season, USA Softball in conjunction with ESPN.com, distributes a weekly Top 25 poll. The poll is voted on by coaching representatives from 10 Division I Conferences in the 10 USA Softball Regions as well as members of National and Local media who consistently cover Division I softball across the country. 

USA Softball National Collegiate
Player of the Year

Each NCAA Softball season, USA Softball recognizes a Collegiate Player of the Year based on outstanding play over the course of the entire season. At the beginning of each season, USA Softball issues a Top 50 "Watch list" for Player of the Year. Midway through the season the voting panel narrows the list to the Top 25 Finalists. In the final week of the regular season, the list is reduced to the Top 10 Finalists. The week prior to the Women's College World Series (WCWS), the Top 3 Finalists are announced and the USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year is awarded during a team reception the week of the WCWS.
