Springfield Township Community Partners and Youth Sports Organizations
Important Community Links
Springfield Township offers numerous opportunities for youth to get involved in sports at different levels. The township neither funds the programs nor do we have authority over the organizations other than allowing them to use our fields for practices and/or games. In addition to the organizations we have listed below there are other individual travel teams that have formed over the years made up of Springfield Township residents.
Bear Creek Park has a football field plus some additional space located behind 6645 Airport Highway and is used primarily by our little league football organizations for practices and games.

SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP YOUTH BASEBALL/SOFTBALL
Greg Daniels, STYBS President
For more information click STYBS Website
The softball/baseball diamonds are home to STYBS (Springfield Township Youth Baseball Softball). They are primarily a summer recreational league but do sponsor some community travel teams as the kids get older and begin playing against other community teams in leagues such as SGS (Suburban Girls Softball) and SAWS (for boys). We also allow youth travel teams made up primarily of Springfield kids to utilize the fields as their home field.
In addition to youth programs, Community Homecoming Park is a host field for the Wizards Fast Pitch Fall and Spring Ball Leagues and the home of annual events such as the Cody Brown Memorial Tournament, Rollie Run, and the Strawberry Festival.
The soccer fields at Community Homecoming Park are home to SSA (Springfield Soccer Association) recreational league as well as the G.N.A.T. (Generation Next Athletes of Tomorrow) travel soccer league. They play every Fall and Spring with approximately 600 township kids participating each season.
