The Dickinson Parks and Recreation Department is making a slight change to its summer softball leagues.
Due to the amount of teams, Parks and Rec will only have room for 24 teams per night. They will not play overflow games on other nights of the week. Parks and Rec will offer a men’s Rec 3-4 league on Monday nights.
Any team that wants to register for the men’s, women’s or co-ed leagues must have at least one member attend a mandatory meeting at 7 p.m. Sunday in the community room at the West River Community Center. The sponsor fees for the men’s and women’s leagues is $160, while coed is $110.
“Monday nights, we have diamonds open, so we are going to start a men’s Rec 3-4-only league to take that overflow off,” said Ryan Nelson, who is Parks and Rec’s recreation/facilities manager. “Last year, we would play overflow games on Monday, but teams would sign up for Thursday and they would end up playing Monday due to the overflow. Some of the teams were playing almost half their games on the night they weren’t supposed to, so it’s tough to plan for players.”
The manager will sign up for their preferred night, but preference will be given to returning teams. Managers will also receive their team registration packet during the meeting.
For further questions, contact Nelson at 701-456-2074.
