ACTIVITY

Competition consists of teams playing a five-week round robin schedule.  All teams without a forfeit will advance to a single elimination playoff. Leagues are offered for men’s, open and co-rec teams.  A co-rec team consists of five males and five females with batting order-alternating male/female. An open team consists of 10 players (no gender specific rules or player ratio requirements and is recreational in nature). Official ASA slow-pitch softball rules, with intramural modifications, will govern play.
