Reservation Info


Field use Prior to Mid April is "At Own Risk" as fields will not be prepared for rental, until then.  We can not confirm any Rental Dates until April 1st.  If you have any questions please contact [email protected] for potential times, dates and fields.



  • To reserve a field, you will need to be able to provide a copy of your team insurance listing the City Of Columbia as additional insured.
  • Submit a request via the registration link requesting an available date per the calendar below. 
  • You will be contacted regarding payment for related fees as outlined by the fee structure below.


The batting cages located near the Bolm-Schuhkraft (City Park) field were not built, maintained nor managed by the Columbia Athletic Association.  These are available to Columbia residents on a first-come-first-serve basis.  If you have any questions regarding these batting cages, please contact the City of Columbia. 

If you have reserved the ball field at Bolm-Schuhkraft, you are not automatically entitled to the batting cages.  


While we do offer reservations for fields, there is always 1 field open at all times for the public.  The American Legion Fields is the best place to find this field.  With 11 fields there is always 1 open every night.  However, it may not be the same field each night.  IF you are looking to use a field at 6pm Mon - Thurs, you will need to find the open field, as our age groups from night to night change and we swap fields to accommodate field size.

To submit a reservation request, complete the registration below.
