Springfield Ballers Mission!

The Springfield Ballers provides affordable opportunities to youth in athletics through programs that promote academic achievement and overall health and wellness for the purpose of creating a complete and well-rounded student athlete.




The Springfield Ballers is committed to offering youth and families in the low-income Greater Springfield and surrounding urban and rural communities with affordable sports opportunities. Our core values focus on academics, respect, community and leadership by providing programs that bring together young people from different socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. We foster collaborations with local businesses, organizations, schools and colleges to create a more enriching experience for school-aged youth to develop their intellectual and social skills through sports in a challenging and safe environment.

Where did it all Start

Lady Ballers was an all-girls team and first started with Coach Scott Walker in 2007. As time went on James Gee and Mike Anderson joined the team and under their leadership grew this team into an organization called The Springfield Ballers. The growth started with additional teams, adding boys' and growing with multiple sports such as Lacross, golf, and softball.
