Softball Slide Catch

SPRD offers the following divisions in Softball:

  • Men's D/Coed D: Semi-Competitive Division. Our most popular league. Players in this league have some experience playing at the high-school level or have experience playing recreational softball. Have a few players that can hit home runs, have semi-aggressive defense and baserunners, but not all players have a high skill level. Looking to play for the enjoyment of the game.
  • Men's E+/Coed E+: Upper Recreational Division. An in-between league that offers the best of both worlds! Teams have either won past E league seasons or are not at the D League level.
  • Men's E/Coed E: Recreational/Beginner Division. Players are still learning the game and have little experience in softball/baseball, but play for the enjoyment of the game. These teams are rarely aggressive on the base paths and usually the best league for those teams that will be playing in their 1st season. This division will use an alternative home-plate.
  • Masters 50+ Senior Softball: Men or women ages 50+ at the start of season.
  • Masters 60+ Senior Softball: Men or women ages 60+ at the start of season.
  • Masters 65+ Draft League: If you are interested in playing in this league, please reach out to the league administrator at for more information.
