Adult Sports Programs

Rec & Ed offers five adult sports programs: softball, baseball, basketball, kickball and volleyball. These programs offer adults living in the Ann Arbor area a great opportunity to stay fit, socialize and have a great time using city-owned parks and school facilities for their recreational needs. All leagues are set up by skill level to maintain parity and make for more evenly balanced contests.

Softball, kickball and baseball leagues are offered twice a year, in the spring/summer and fall seasons. Indoor volleyball leagues are offered three times a year in the fall, winter and spring. Rec & Ed also offers sand volleyball leagues during the summer months. Our adult basketball leagues begin in December and conclude in early spring.

Please note: Registration periods for these activities begin approximately two months before league play starts.

Youth Sports Programs

Rec & Ed offers the following youth sports programs: soccer, field hockey, basketball, baseball, softball, coach pitch, volleyball, T-ball, indoor soccer, lacrosse and flag football. In most sports, separate leagues are offered for boys and girls.  Typically, players register individually and are assigned by public school attendance area or by the school they actually attend, public or private. The teams are formed by grade, not age. In general, players who register earlier receive a more favorable team placement than those who register later. Rec & Ed does honor special requests when possible.

In an era when many sports programs for youth overemphasize the importance of winning and try to have children specialize in a single sport at a very young age, Rec & Ed recommends children take part in a diverse number of wholesome recreational activities. The Team Sports staff encourages kids to participate in its youth sports leagues regardless of the child's skill level or physical or emotional limitations.  All kids receive guaranteed playing time while they learn how to play the game. Rec & Eds Youth Sports Program emphasizes sportsmanship, teamwork and using sports as a means to increase each child's self-esteem.  Most importantly, we provide programs in which the primary goal is for kids simply to have fun.
