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.

Girls on the Run (GOTR) Spring Registration is open

Girls on the Run (GOTR) Spring Registration is open and includes both In-Person and Live, Online Options.  You can register your 8-13 year old to join a Girls on the Run team, to help them stay physically and emotionally healthy despite the pandemic.

Some teams are school-specific (Angier, Bowen, Brown, and Mason-Rice) and others are open to all girls, regardless of school (the “All Newton” outdoor Newton Centre team and online “Team Leadership” & “Team Connection”).

Twice weekly, small teams of girls in grades 3-5 or 6-8 are led by trained coaches through the research-based curriculum that uses running and physical activity to build girls’ confidence and resilience and has reached over 2 million girls nationally.
