Our Department of Recreation and Parks offer a variety of Softball Leagues for Village Residents ages 18 and over. Each league plays slow pitch softball with a “Clincher” ball. The leagues are divided accordingly: 

Spring Men’s League – is open to any team comprised of male residents, ages 18 and over.  This league is also open to any Village business.  In order for a business team to be accepted, a letter from the company must accompany the team’s registration verifying that all members of the team work in that company.  All games for this league are played on weekday evenings.  The league begins in April and runs through June.  All games are played on Community Park’s Field #3.


Men’s Over 35 League – is open to Village residents only, who are over 35 or turning 35 during the softball season.  Games are played on Sunday evenings and run from late May through September.  Games are played at Community Park, Middle School, Grove Park, and Stewart Field.


Summer Men’s League – is similar in format to the Spring Men’s league except it is only open to Village residents ages 18 and older.  The league starts in late June and runs through September.  Games are played at Community Park, Grove Park, Middle School and Stewart Field.


Women’s Summer League– begins in late June and runs until September.  This league is open to any team comprised of women, ages 18 and older, who are Village residents.
