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 and a concessions stand. Register as a team, not as an individual player. If you are a player looking to join a team, please contact Cari Boyle, Athletic Coordinator, at
