Numbers are growing but there’s still room!

Newton Girls Softball seeks girls of all experience levels to learn about and play softball together while forging friendships and fostering fun. The Rec program welcomes Newton girls in grades K-7. For information and to register visit www.newtongirlssoftball.org.

Sign up with a friend by midnight on February 28th to take advantage of your “pair me with” rights. Each player is allowed to request one person (and only one) to be paired with on the same team. It may be a friend, sister, or car-pool buddy.

To be fulfilled, both players must list each other on their registration forms, and both forms must be received by March 1st. See Policies and Guidelines for additional details.

From March 1st to April 15th registration will still be open. Player is placed on the wait list, no pair-me-with rights, and a $15 late fee. Openings filled on a first come, first served basis.
