Registration will be at 6 PM at the upper fields on the night of your first practice.

Ends: Sunday, November 4. Awards night TBA.

Weekday sessions will begin at 6:00 PM. and will last approximately 1 to 1½ hours depending on weather and daylight. We will practice/play in light drizzle or rain if practice has already begun. If there has been heavy rain prior to the start of practice/play, but ended, the fields will be evaluated and parents are to use their best judgment as to attendance for that time. If there is heavy rain prior to and during practice/play time there will be no play. Usually it is a judgment call based on safety first and common sense. Parents can always contact me. I will try to notify parents as early as possible.

Participants should bring a water bottle, their own soccer ball (#3 size for K-1, #4 for the older kids), sweatshirt for cold days, sneakers or cleats (cleats are preferred as they are great on a wet or worn fields – but not necessary, especially for the younger players), shinguards for all grades required. We have lots of hand me down cleats if you wish to save $$. They will be available at the first few practices.

Saturday sessions are fun games reinforcing skills learned during the week. There are 3, 45 minute, sessions running from 9 am to Noon beginning with the K-1 group at 9, 2-3 at 10, and the 4-6 group at 11. These times may be subject to change.

Volunteer coaches always welcome!

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 5:00-6:00 pm.  Deb may be reached at    lunamadre60@gmail.com   Contact  recreation@newfieldny.org for further information.

Support: 

 Our department  thrives on community support. Support comes in multiple forms: grants, fundraising efforts, donations, as well as volunteering. Volunteers make our recreation department happen, and we are always looking for new volunteers to help with rec programs.  If you would like to volunteer to participate, lead or coach please contact us.  
The Newfield Recreation Department is proud to have the support of the United Way of Tompkins County
