Welcome to the Town of Newfield Recreation Department.
We offer a variety of recreation opportunities for the community, and we are always looking to expand and improve our offerings. Almost all of our recreation programs are held on Newfield Central School District grounds or inside the school’s facilities. Without the support from the school district many of our programs would not be possible. In any community, communication is key. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any ideas, questions or concerns by using the contact information at the bottom of this page.
Thanks to all who made our youth basketball program a success this year: Parents, players, coaches, referees and score table officials, concession workers, maintenance people and fans.

How to Register: For youth sports programs, we hold sign-up nights a few weeks before the program starts at the Newfield Town Hall. We accept applications at Town Hall anytime leading up to the sign up. Applications will be accepted after the sign-up nights all the way through the first week of the program. In our guide each activity has a sign up time listed. Unfortunately, we do not have a way to sign up electronically.
