The Mount Ida College softball program began competing in NCAA contests in 2000. They have made postseason appearances in 2005 as members of the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) and in 2010 and 2015 as part of the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC).
Every season, the Mustangs match up against opponents from the GNAC, as well as a tough non-conference schedule made up of local and regional opponents.

2. Come visit. Make a visit to campus with your parents. Contact Coach Zuman with some anticipated dates. Coach Zuman will confirm availability, which will then allow you the chance to schedule a campus tour and admissions interview through our Admission’s Office at 617-928-4553. Coach Zuman and her staff are available throughout the year and are happy to meet with prospects and their families in the softball office. Please anticipate spending about three hours during a complete visit.
3. Send a video or YouTube clips. Send a game or highlight tape of you playing in a competitive environment. We can't get out to see every prospect play. Looking at a tape or YouTube clips of you allows us at least something to go on, which may be helpful in evaluating your ability to play at Mount Ida.

4. See the team play. Check out the schedule and come watch the team play. Send Coach Zuman an email in advance at email@example.com or call her at 617-928-7211 so either she or her staff can meet you at the end of the game.
The Process: The softball staff attends games and tournaments throughout a prospect’s junior and senior years. This allows us to establish a positive relationship and rapport with the prospect as well as her family and evaluate their growth and development as a player.
