Bismarck Sparks Travel Teams

The Bismarck Sparks are competitive fastpitch travel teams.

Traveling softball is the most competitive level of play in BYFSA softball. The primary emphasis of traveling softball is skill development, teamwork, cooperation, sportsmanship and respect for others. While more emphasis is placed on competing and striving to win, winning is not the only focus of traveling softball. Recognizing that individuals will have different skill levels and needs, the program will seek to maximize the potential of every player. Each participant will be treated fairly and know that they are an important part of the team and that their contribution is valued.

Our goal is to field at least one team per age division to represent BYFSA in tournaments. If we do need to move younger players up due to low registration counts, it will be based on the player score and parent consent.

We do have scholarships available. Applications will be considered on a case by case basis, please send your contact information to and one of our board members will contact you.
