Bentonville Parks & Recreation in partnership with the Bentonville Youth Softball League offers a spring recreational youth softball program for girls ages 3-16. 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.

Skills Assessments

Please find information about our annual skills assessments on the page made just for that, located on the left hand side. 

Price

Lil' Sluggers: $50 per player

6U and older: $80 per player
