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.


Adult wellness programs will continue with open basketball in the HS Gym on Monday and Thursday evenings starting at 8 pm and Adult open volleyball on Wednesdays.  Tai Chi, a program of the Taoist Society of Ithaca, will be on Mondays and Wednesdays  in the elementary school room 68 beginning at 4:45 pm.  Yoga Dance with Deb DeLorenzo, also weekly, meets on Tuesdays in room 68 of the elementary school from 5:15-6:15 pm.  Deb may be reached at  and classes will begin 9/16  Thursdays will be present Zumba Gold from 5:30-6:15 in room 68.  For further information please contact Cindy Hoffman, Instructor, at 607-592-8699 or or Reid Hoskins, Recreation Director, at 220-3461 or

More information on all these programs and answers to any recreation questions concerning our community may be found in our online catalog (being updated as of Feb. 23), or by contacting the Recreation Department (information at the bottom of the page).
