Bentonville Parks & Recreation in partnership with the Bentonville Youth Softball League offers a fall recreational youth softball program for girls ages 7-16. This fast pitch softball program focuses on participation, sportsmanship, and skill development. Games and Practices will take place at Memorial Park and Phillips Park.
New Field Surface
We want everyone to be aware that we've converted the infields of our four softball fields to synthetic turf surface. This means a lot of great things for softball, as well as some rules changes, the more important of which is that no metal cleats (whatsoever) are allowed on these fields. We will permit rubber molded cleats to be used, but we recommend turf shoes or tennis shoes on the synthetic turf surface.
Registration for the Fall Season will open July 1, 2018. This will be a team registration only process. Round up your players, gather your teams, and get going for the fall. Coaches, please take a look at our Registration Roster (PDF) for more information. All games will be played at Memorial Park. For more information please reach out to your age commissioner or Bentonville Parks and Recreation at 479-464-PARK (7275). A Registration Roster is required, even if you pay online.
Team Registration: $400 per team
Player Team Connection
Parents, as the fall is team registration only we want to provide you a resource to helping your child find a team to play on this fall. Our Player / Team Connection is just that. Email an age commissioner, contact information listed below, and they will get your child listed on the player list. Coaches, if you're starting a new team or just looking to add a player or two... this is your best place to look. Teams can list their team that they have and they can look for players listed to contact.
For more information regarding our Youth Softball League please contact our advisory board members.
