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. 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

Spring 2019 registration is closed

Spring leagues begin the week of April 1st and run four to five weeks. Teams play eight games: there are no playoffs, championships, or awards.
