MONTVILLE, NJ – The Montville Township Recreation Department introduced its fall programs and there is something for every interest and age group, whether its sports, dance, or academics.

“We’re excited about our fall programs,” said Recreation Supervisor Kelley Kehoe. “Whether you like soccer or basketball, zumba or yoga, drawing or martial arts; we’ve got academic programs to prepare students for the SATs and classes to help improve reading and writing skills. If you can think of it, Montville Rec probably has a program.”

For the adults, there’s men’s open gym basketball for 18 and over and 35 and over, Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays. Golf lessons for advanced adults will be available on Thursdays. Tennis will be taught indoors and outdoors.

Academic strategies classes for students in grades 6-8 will teach time management skills, good studying habits, organizational skills, test-taking strategies, note-taking strategies, homework strategies, memorization techniques, communication skills, reading comprehension strategies, learning style strategies, listening activities, stress management and much more.
