Summer Softball League Update

It is our hope we can start our adult softball leagues sometime in early July once Illinois reaches phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan. Registration is currently open and will remain open until June 24th with the anticipation of a start date the week of July 6th. AHPD will push back registration deadlines if we are unable to start the week of July 6th.

Due to the delay in the start of league play, AHPD will offer only one season this year.

Teams have the option of paying a $100 deposit at the time of registration with the remaining balance being due on June 24th. Teams also have the option of paying in full. Please review the link below with directions on how to complete the registration.


Please note: The week of July 6th as a start date is subject to change based on government guidelines and recommendations.


The Arlington Heights Park District offers a variety of softball leagues to accommodate players and teams with a range of softball experience. Although we offer both recreational to competitive leagues, all leagues are primarily for FUN.

AHPD softball leagues play at the Melas Park Sports Complex: a facility with four lit ball diamonds with synthetic turf infields,a concessions stand, a playground, and ample parking. 

One player registers the entire team, and all fees must be paid in full at the time of registration. This year we are allowing $100 down payment with the remaining balance due on June 24. Blank rosters will be emailed prior to the start of the season. (you may also download one from this page). A new team roster/waiver must be completed, signed, and submitted to staff at the Melas Park concessions stand before the start of your first game EVERY season. You may add players to your roster, within the limits of your league, until the start of your third game.

We do not have individual player registration. If you are a player looking to join a team, please contact Nick Wirth, Athletic Supervisor, at


Summer 2020 league registration is open through June 24

Summer is our biggest season, and we have a wide variety of leagues at different levels. Please choose the level that best suits your team. We reserve the right to bracket teams based on past season record. If we do not have an appropriate league for your team's competitive level, we will refund your registration fee in full before the season begins.
