Summer Softball Registration

During the summer, Evanston softball partners with Wilmette for a six-week season. We form Evanston teams that play in the Wilmette league. This year, games will be played on Monday evenings except the week of July 4th. Make-up games (rainouts) will be rescheduled whenever possible. All games are at Howard Park in Wilmette.

The season opens June 20 and ends August 1. Grades are based on what your child will be in the fall.


This is a combined player-pitch/coach-pitch level. This is the second level of player development with continued emphasis on improving throwing and catching skills and teaching players to be aggressive hitters. Players also get their first opportunity to pitch. Basic pitching skills are taught.  

Grades 6/7/8/9/10

This level advances players skills further, introducing base-stealing and a greater emphasis on pitching development. Players continue to advance their basic throwing and catching skills, and developing stronger infield and outfield abilities becomes more important.

Scholarships are available for summer softball. To request a scholarship, please send an email to "". We request that participants pay a minimum of $25 per player for summer if possible.  

Summer Baseball Registration

For 2022 EBSA will offer a Summer baseball league for first through eighth grade players. The Summer Ball league is organized through the Chicago Suburban Youth Baseball Association.  This league includes teams from neighboring communities (Skokie, Niles, Lincolnwood, Edgebrook, Wilmette, Winnetka, etc). 

Generally, there will be two games per week - one on the weekend (most likely Saturday) and another in the evening during the week.  Most games will be held in Evanston, but there will likely be a few away games as well.  Practice dates, times, and locations will be determined by each individual coach.

The Summer 2022 league will start June 25th. The Mustang, Bronco and Pinto leagues will run through July 28th, then a tournament the following week.  Pinto will end on August 8th. 

There are four age groups, based on 2021-2022 school year grades:

Pinto  - 1st /2nd grade – Played on a 50-ft diamond
Mustang-  3rd/4th grade – Played on a 60-ft diamond
Bronco – 5th/6th grade – Played on a 70-ft diamond
Pony-  7th/8th grade – Played on an 80-ft diamond

Registration ends May 23rd. 

Scholarships are available for summer baseball. To request a scholarship, please send an email to "".
