*7 & 3 is a Co-rec league where teams play with 7 men and 3 women. On offense, the women may not bat back to back. On defense, the 3 women must play the following positions: one outfielder, one infielder, and one woman plays pitcher or catcher. 7 & 3 plays on Wednesdays and is a good option for teams that have more men than women on their roster.
The Sponsor Fee is the initial fee paid by all teams at registration to reserve their spot in the league. All teams pay both the sponsor fee AND the team fees, regardless of whether or not a team has procured a sponsor. The Non-Resident Fee applies to all players who reside outside the boundaries of the Ann Arbor Public School District.
Team rosters and fees are due by 5:00 PM on Tuesday, May 2, 2023. Anything submitted after this date will be assessed a late fee of $2.00 per player. DOWNLOAD A TEAM ROSTER HERE!
Rec & Ed accepts credit and debit cards, money orders, certified and corporate checks. A personal check will only be accepted from the team’s manager whose name appears on the registration form. Checks should be made out to Ann Arbor Public Schools. Special arrangements need to be made to drop off a check, since the office is not open to the public.
LEAGUE INFORMATION, RULES AND GUIDELINES
Teams that participated in 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 the 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. League Rules are also posted online on the "Softball Forms & Rules" page.
Matching uniform shirts with visible and distinct numbers are recommended but not required.

OFFICIAL RESULT SHEETS
Result sheets should be emailed to email@example.com as soon as the game ends. 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.
Sponsor and individual awards are presented to the division / league champion. In leagues with 9 or more teams, individual awards are given to the runner-up team.
PRACTICE PERMIT POLICY
Practice diamonds for adult softball teams can be rented for a permit fee of $30. Managers will receive a list of available sites and times for practice and a fillable request form and payment form. Teams wishing to reserve a practice diamond during the season must return a completed request form along with a $30 permit fee to Conner at firstname.lastname@example.org. Practice dates cannot be rescheduled if they are cancelled due to inclement weather.
