Adult League Sports

Des Moines Parks and Recreation offers competitive and recreational leagues for various sports with registration for men, women and coed teams.  Anyone can form a team from work, church, social group or neighborhood.  Some families and other social groups have been active in multiple sports leagues for generations.  All adult sports leagues are team registered with official rosters for up to twenty players; individuals who are not on teams are encouraged to call the Parks and Recreation Office at 515-237-1386 and place their name on our player-referral list which is made available to team managers needing extra players.  Leagues are filled on a first-come first-served basis; early registration is encouraged, as some leagues fill up fast.  Awards are presented to league champions in each sport with tournament play offered at the end of the season.  All sports programs listed below use certified officials and have well established reputations for quality play.
