Softball

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. Blank rosters will be distributed at the captain's pre-season meeting (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 nwirth@ahpd.org.

Spring 2020 registration is open through March 22nd.

We offer weeknight Men's 12" leagues, Monday through Friday, and do not split leagues by level. Games begin the week of March 30th, and teams play an eight game season of back-to-back games over four to five weeks (no playoffs or awards). We do not reschedule forfeited or rained out games - teams will receive a refund for any games not played. The team fee is $400.
