Sports Leagues

The Springfield Department of Parks, Buildings & Recreation Management offers a variety of recreational sports leagues to city residents, both youth and adult. Want to register someone for a particular sport? The time to do so is two months prior to the season the sport is played in. For example, fall soccer registration is usually taken in August. Winter basketball registration would take place in October, and spring soccer, softball and baseball would all take place in February.

Parents can register their children for a sport by contacting neighborhood athletic associations, parishes or sports clubs. These organizations should be called to see when the exact registration dates will be, as they can vary from organization to organization. If you do not know any organizations or parishes in your community, the Park Department can assist you in locating one -- phone 311 or (413)736-3111 or email for details.

The sports leagues and contact names listed on the Park Department’s website are provided for information only.  These programs are not sponsored or endorsed by the Park Department in any way, and the Park Department is not responsible for any actions of the entities or individuals involved.
