Games are scheduled whenever Cobb County Government employees are required to work. Games are not scheduled on Good Friday, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. We do schedule games on Halloween, however, since this is not an official national holiday. We also schedule games during the spring and/or fall breaks of all local school districts.

How many forfeits are allowed in a season?

PARKS reserves the right to drop a team from the league if the team forfeits 2 or more league games during the season. No refunds are given.

How do I know if my game is rained out?

Cobb PARKS uses rainedout.com for weather updates and general information regarding our adult softball leagues. If you want to receive an automated text or email about field closures please visit https://rainoutline.com/search/dnis/7622028142 and click the email or text alerts link. You would then click the email or text heading and check which locations you would like to subscribe to for rainout alerts. You can also download the mobile app to receive notifications. No cancellations will be made before 4pm.

If my game is rained out, where can I find make-up information?

If possible, we will include that information on the rained out message for your park. We will post make-up information on our league website at www.quickscores.com/cobbcounty. In order to minimize verbal errors, we prefer not to give out schedule information or make-up information over the phone.

I have just moved to the area. How do I get on a team?

For some leagues we offer an individual registration for players. Registering as an individual does not guarantee a place on a team. If there are enough registrants you will be placed on a team. If there are not enough registrants your registration will be refunded.  If you have questions about the free agent registration visit the league page or contact the league coordinator. 

For each sport we also maintain a “free agents” list of individuals wishing to get on a team. You can call the Adult Athletic office at (770) 528-8860 to leave your name, phone number, sport and position you are interested in, and level of play. Occasionally, this free agent list of individuals wishing to play is requested by managers who find that they have insufficient numbers to make up a team. We do not put individuals in direct contact with managers. Submitting your name does not guarantee that a team will contact you.

Is there any other way to try to get on a team?

For some leagues we offer an individual registration for players. Registering as an individual does not guarantee a place on a team. If there are enough registrants you will be placed on a team. If there are not enough registrants your registration will be refunded.  If you have questions about the free agent registration visit the league page or contact the league coordinator. 

What is the age requirement and how many can play for each sport?

Can I get in touch with the manager of a team to see if he/she is planning to forfeit a game with me?

No. That manager might tell you that he/she is not planning to play. That team could then show up and win by forfeit. Managers should call in a forfeit to their League Coordinator. Depending on timing, we will then do everything we can to let the other team know that there has been an official forfeit.

If my team wins my league, when and where will awards be available?

First place and second place teams will receive their awards after the championship game or their last game of the season.
