Adult Spring Softball Registration 



Play ball! New for 2013, City-Wide Athletics offers the first annual Grapefruit Softball League! Team registration for this "pre-season" league will be February 4-8. Fee is $250 per team. Men will play on Thursday nights and Coed on Friday nights in late February and early March. This will be a short (8-game) season with no playoffs. It's a great opportunity for you and your team to shake off the rust before the Spring season begins.

Spring 2013 Adult Softball League team registration will be held February 18 through March 8. Fee is $500 per team. Men's, Women's, Coed and Men's Legends (50 & Over) leagues will be offered. Practices begin April 1 and the season will run from the end of April through late July. Maximum of 20 players per team. Games are played at various ball fields throughout the city.


Registration is taken on a team basis at the City-Wide Athletic Office (4001 Dam Neck Road). Each team pays a franchise fee at registration. Players must be 18 years old or a graduating high school senior. Registration information will be posted on by February 15. You can also get on our mailing list for a team registration form by calling the City-Wide Athletics Office at 358-0458.
Register early! Leagues are subject to close-out prior to the last day of signups.
