Coaches 

We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteer coaches for every age group in our league. Please consider coaching your child's team. You will make a huge impact! Please contact Baylee D'Amico at bdamico@bentonvillear.com for more information.

Sponsors

Please consider sponsoring a youth sports team to help support scholarships for our programs. Your companies name/logo will appear on your team's uniform. You can sponsor a team for $250. Please contact Baylee D'Amico at bdamico@bentonvillear.com or more information. 

Turf 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.

Cancellations

For up-to-date cancellations / field closings during inclement weather, please be sure to visit the Parks and Recreation Home Page where you can view the status of each field.
To become instantly notified, via email or text, when a field has been closed for game play, you may sign up to receive status updates.
