SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ – Registration is now open for Scotch Plains Recreation's Spring 2017 girls’ softball league. There will be two separate leagues available for the girls to participate: 1) a house league for 2nd and 3rd graders and 2) a Union County league for girls in 4th through 8th grade. (The goal of the Union County league is to expand the number of teams and to provide more competition throughout the season.)

Players of all skill levels are welcome to play in these leagues. Practices will begin at the end of March (weather permitting) and the season runs from April through the end of May.

In addition, the Scotch Plains Parks & Recreation Department is also offering a new K-1 grade softball clinic, which is being run by head clinician and former Montclair State player, Amanda Schroder.
