Leerfield Directors' Cup

Learfield Sports Directors' Cup

The Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup was developed as a joint effort between the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and USA Today. Points are awarded based on each institution's finish in up to 20 sports -- 10 women’s and 10 men’s.

The program honors institutions who maintain a broad-based program and achieve success in many sports, both men's and women's. Begun in 1993-94, it was expanded in 1995-96 to include Division II, III and the NAIA and, in 2011-12, expanded to the Junior/Community Colleges.
