Sparks is a parent run/coached travel softball organization.  Sparks is for Chatham residents who played in at least 25% of the 2023 regular season rec games.  The only exception to this are 9th graders who are still eligible for the u14 division.  We play in the Parkway League from mid June to late July. It's usually a 12 game summer schedule plus playoffs. Opponents can be as far away as Metuchen or as close as New Providence.  Some of the u12 and u14 teams play in an extra weekend tournaments during the summer.

 

The fees for this team can run between $200 to $500 per player, just depending on how many extra tournaments a team plays in. Fees cover insurance, league dues, equipment, umpires and uniforms. Last season we had the following teams:

two u8 teams

two u10 teams

one u12 team

one u14 team

U8 will have evaluations in the spring 2023.  We'll have a new wave of young U8 players joining Sparks.  The league feels it makes more sense to do this in the spring so the younger players can get adjusted to the spring season.
