ADULT SOFTBALL

The Bartlett Park District offers a Men’s 12″ Softball League and a Co-ed 14″ hardball Softball League. Teams are guaranteed 10, 12 or 16 games (depending on the league) before the single-elimination playoffs. All league games are played at the Koehler Field Complex (2245 Southwind Blvd.). ASA, USSSA and GSL leagues will be offered.

On July 29, the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity released a new All Sports Policy effective August 15, 2020. This guidance under the Restore Illinois Plan pertains to all youth and adult recreational sports including but not limited to school-based sports (IHSA & IESA), travel clubs, private leagues and clubs, recreational leagues, centers, and park district sports programs.

The Bartlett Park District is reviewing this information, and our staff will be restructuring programs to meet the guidelines as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience as we work to provide valuable alternatives to areas that do not allow for competitive play and other new restrictions.

The safety of our staff, patrons, and participants continue to be of the utmost importance as we adjust to offer safe, fun, and developmental recreational experiences for the community. Once our plans are finalized, we will provide updated information on our district website (bartlettparks.org), TeamSideline, and email registered participants with the information.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through these changes.
