In 2008, Dr. Dot Richardson founded THE Spring Games as a home for Division III and JUCO teams who had restrictions on early season play as a result of limited facility availability (mostly due to snow!) and budgets. Since then, THE Spring Games has provided college softball teams at all levels the opportunity to come to sunny Central Florida and play anywhere from 2-28 games on clay and grass when they would otherwise be indoors up North.

Today, THE Spring Games hosts over 400 college softball teams. Our leadership includes former Olympians, coaches, and players in the sport of softball. Our administrative team includes individuals with experience at the college football level. With a combined 140 (plus) years experience in collegiate or International athletics, the staff at THE Spring Games brings a passion to this event like no other event in college sports.

THE Spring Games isn’t just a big event, it’s big news! Check out some of the coverage we’ve received, below.
