    Every team that registers in the Community Education & Recreation Adult Softball Program receives  a set of game balls, result sheets, a score book, a softball rule book and a set of league rules.  Every team must send a representative on one of the dates and times listed below to pick up this equipment.  We ask your cooperation in obtaining your team's equipment on a timely basis. 

    Tuesday & Thursday, May 3 & 5, 2022
    11 AM - 1:00 PM & 4:00 - 6:00 PM

    Pick up location is along the driveway at the double doors on the west side of the Rec office, 1515 S. Seventh St., Ann Arbor MI 48103


    Teams that participated the previous year can view their current league classification HERE. League classification can be appealed by submitting an appeal form in writing to the Adult Sports Supervisor by FRIDAY prior to team registration.

    The Community Education & Recreation Adult Softball program is governed by current USA Softball rules (formerly known as ASA).  However, Rec & Ed has developed local league rules which may supersede some USA Softball rules.  Every team will receive a current year ASA Softball Rule book and a set of Rec & Ed League Rules when they pick up their equipment. League Rules are also posted online on the "Forms" page HERE.

    For league play, individuals may not participate on more than one team in any one program. For example, player A cannot play on two Men's Slow Pitch teams or two Co-Rec Slow Pitch teams. However, player A can play on two different teams in two different programs. For example, player A can play on a Women's Slow Pitch team and a Co-Rec Slow Pitch team or Player B can play on a Men's Slow Pitch team and a Men's over 50 Slow Pitch team. Below are the different softball programs offered by Rec&Ed:

    1.  Men's Slow Pitch
    2.  Men's 50 & over Slow Pitch
    3.  Co-Rec Slow Pitch 
    4.  Women's Slow Pitch

    We recommend that teams wear matching uniform shirts with visible and distinct numbers, but this is not required.


    Men's & Women's Slow Pitch 20 player limit
    Co-Rec Slow Pitch No limit

    Result sheets should be emailed to Nick at doylen@a2schools.org. The home team keeps the official score (the team listed first on the league schedule is designated as the home team). The winning team is required to submit the game result sheet by email immediately after the game. However, in the event your game ends in a tie, the HOME TEAM is responsible for submitting the result sheet.

    A. Any team that forfeits two games in a season (except forfeits due to use of ineligible players, ejection or injury) will forfeit all of its remaining games on their league schedule unless a $50.00 re-entry fee is paid.

    B. A team must pay the league re-entry fee at Rec&Ed within seven days of its second forfeit. A reminder will be sent only as a courtesy measure to notify a team of its second forfeit.

    C. If a team is not sure of its number of forfeits, it is the team manager’s responsibility to contact the league statistician at 994-2300 ext. 53218. The Coordinator of Team Sports may waive the league re-entry fee at his or her discretion.

    Sponsor and individual awards will be presented to the division or league champion.  In divisions or leagues with 9 or more teams, individual awards will also be presented to the runner-up team.


    Practice diamonds for adult softball teams should be rented during the team registration process. The Spring/Summer diamond permit fee is $30. At registration each team will receive a Diamond Permit Information Packet. The packet includes the list of available sites and times for practice and a request form. Teams wishing to reserve a practice diamond during the season must return a completed request form with a $30 permit fee to the Sean Williams at Williams@a2schools.org. Please remember that assigned practice dates cannot be rescheduled if they are cancelled due to inclement weather.

    Diamonds permits will be issued on a first-come, first-serve basis.
    Please contact Sean Williams at 994-2300 ext. 53214 or williams@a2schools.org for more information on diamond rental.
