Softball Field Reservation Policy
To qualify to reserve a field a team must have 75% of their team attend Indianola schools. A team roster with coaches and player names, addresses and phone numbers will need to be submitted to qualify.
Indianola Park & Rec Youth Softball Teams: Park & Rec teams will be assigned a practice time until the games start. Then any teams who want to continue practicing after games have started will need to decide at the coaches meeting and will be assigned a regular weekly practice time and place.
Independent Competitive Softball and Baseball Teams: will be treated the same and given regular weekly practice time(s) after the P&R youth teams have been assigned a practice time. The number of times per week will depend on the practice times available. A drawing will be held for teams to pick practice times for April – June and again for July-Sept.
ISA Adult Softball Teams: will continue calling in for practice times. One or two of the ISA fields at Pickard will be reserved for adult ISA team practices.
Indianola Little League Baseball Teams and Any Others Who Want to Reserve a Field – will need to call in to reserve a practice field.
A fee of $10 per 1 hr practice time will be charged for all field reservations. Fee must be paid at the time the reservation is made via credit card if over the phone, credit card or cash if in person at the office. No field reservation will be made without payment. A reservation receipt will be emailed to those who make a reservation to have with them to take to their practice to verify their reservation if needed.
P&R softball teams will not pay for their practice field reservations since part of the fees the players pay go towards field maintenance and upkeep. Independent competitive teams will pay in advance for the reservations that they are given. If the team does not use a reserved field due to rain, they should call the Parks & Recreation office within 24 hrs, and a credit will be issued for that practice.
Lights - Lights will only be available for practices on Pickard fields 5 & 6 at the 8:30pm reservation time.
Cost for lights will be $10/hr.
