Bullard Youth Softball, in Fresno, is a league created to serve your daughter(s) through their time playing, competing and excelling in the fantastic game of fastpitch softball. Some of the most lasting and rewarding relationships can be formed through team sports. As in all activities, there is a "right way" to play a sport, and the BYSL exists to teach, reflect and exhibit the values that create great competitors in the sport and carry on for a lifetime of benefit. Learning to excel in youth sports takes time and commitment. We hope that the girls learn that along the way. 

We invite you to sign up and play in any of our age groups, either recreational or competitive: 6U, 8U, 10U 12Uand 14U. If your daughter has never played, and you are looking for a structured introduction to softball, Bullard High School hosts their Lil' Knights youth program each spring. This is a fantastic intro to the game, establishing the fundamentals every player needs to play and develop. 

BYSL Coaching is standardized, using systems designed by our Volunteer Softball Director, Jaime Maxey. Coach Maxey is a Bullard High School Alum, Former Fresno State Bulldog, where she helped win the 1998 NCAA National Championship, and currently leads a successful program as the Bullard High School Varsity Head Coach. You can be confident that your daughter will receive quality instruction and coaching to develop her game. Beyond the Softball, there are core principles we strive to teach...


  • "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart."


  • "Build each other up!"


  • "If you want to be an All-Star, practice, practice, practice."   


  • "Do everything without complaining."


  • "A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."


  • "Who are you when nobody is looking?"
