new opportunity for women! (while not a Newfield Rec program, a nice opportunity)

The Ithaca Women’s Basketball Association hosts 2 hours of basketball play every Wednesday evening starting Sept. 10, from 7-9 p.m. at the Beverly J Martin (BJM) school gymnasium (entrance on Albany Street) when school is in session September – June.
The group is self-governed and play is for fun and exercise. All levels of play are welcome and the group includes women who never played ball before but want to socialize and exercise. It’s FUN!
Play is open to women ages 16 and up.
There is a $20 membership fee to play for the year (2 $10 installments in September and January) to cover necessary insurance for use of the facility. Fee must be paid in order to play so bring $10 bucks the first time you show up to play.

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.

Brian Miller

The Recreation Department would like to extend its sympathy to the family of Brian Miller, who passed away recently.  Brian was a longtime supporter and activist for Newfield Recreation programs and wore many hats as a volunteer, coach, and leader.  He will be missed by all.  On a personal note, I remember Brian’s passion for the basketball program and his drive to make it the best program for his son as well as all the children who participated.  It was one of my first introductions to the Newfield Community and he and Stacy made me feel at home.  You might disagree with Brian but you could not help but respect his dedication and drive to do things to the best of his ability.  And he did.

As a gesture of Brian’s love of community and especially youth sports, his family has asked that donations can be made to the Newfield Recreation Department.  A dedicated fund has been created for these donations and an appropriate use will be found for them in the near future.   We are grateful for this lasting memorial to Brian.


Youth opportunitiesThe Recreation Department offers two programs for the Fall, Soccer and Cheerleading.

Soccer will begin for Grades 2-3 on Wednesday September 3rd and Grades 4-6 on Thursday the 4th (first day of school).   K-1 will begin on Tuesday September 9th.  All practices will start at 6 pm with registrations at the field (by the varsity field) on the first day of practice.  Program details can be seen by clicking the link below.

How to Register: For youth sports programs, we hold sign-up nights a few weeks before the program starts at the Newfield Town Hall, except for soccer which holds theirs on first day of practice.  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.

Program fees vary by sport and reflect actual costs for program.
