After each game, your team can socialize and use your ‚Äėbeer card‚Äô to get two free pitchers of beer to share together at select Great Dane locations in Madison and Fitchburg.


Summer League is more than just a league; it's an over 30-year-long tradition of celebrating the summer together.

  • Up to 17 regular season games and up to 3 playoff games

  • After every game, your team gets two pitches of beer at one of the Great Danes located around Madison/Fitchburg

  • MUFA 2024 Summer League Team Jersey**¬†

What Summer Leagues do we offer? 

(Regular Season: June 3rd - Aug 1st) (Playoffs: Aug 5th - Aug 13th)

($60) Monday/Wednesday League - Create Team - Join Team

($60) Tuesday/Thursday League - Create Team - Join Team

These leagues play twice a week.

($45) One Day a Week (M or W) - Create Team - Join Team

Does two times a week feel like too much for your team's busy schedule? This league participates in the M/W league (listed above) but only plays once a week on either Monday or Wednesday. Once registration closes, we'll move your team into the M/W league and only schedule you on your preferred day.

($60) Small Group Signup - Register

Don't have enough for a full team? No problem. Register in the small group signup! All you need is one or more other people, and we will join you with other groups to create a team for you to play on in the M/W Summer League. 

Note: You must have at least half FMP (female-matching players) to be placed onto a team from the Small Group Signup.

Players who pay between May 8th and June 3rd can purchase a 2024 jersey for a small fee in addition to the summer league fee as part of a smaller second jersey printing run that Wildwood is doing. These jerseys will be available for individual pickup at Wildwood in mid/late June.

Teams that lose their first playoff game can opt-in to a consolation bracket of 2-4 teams of similar skill who also lost their first game. This means that all teams can play at least 2 playoff games.
