The NCAA conducts 89 national championships in 23 sports across Divisions I, II and III, with 44 championships administered for women and 42 for men. That means almost 50,000 student-athletes participate in NCAA championships each year.
From signature events like the March Madness men’s and women’s basketball tournaments to rowing, rifle, softball and skiing, we put on championships first and foremost to ensure student-athletes have a memorable experience. But we’re also committed to quality events for everyone involved, from the coaches to the fans and the broadcasters.
It’s important to us that our championships have a positive impact on the communities that host them. We have youth clinics, fan events and salutes to complement the competition – creating what we hope is a winning moment for everyone involved.
