SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- Registration is now open for the Scotch Plains Girls Softball League, a basic, instructional league that teaches girls in grades 2 - 8 the fundamentals of softball.Teams are formed, with practices and games taking place twice a week (weeknights and Saturday mornings) on Township fields. The program runs from April to June. Leagues are for 2nd-3rd Grade, 4th - 5th Grades, and 6th - 8th Grades (subject to change, based on enrollment). Registration: $85 (Feb. 6th onward). Volunteers are needed to coach.

To register online, visit http://scotchplainsnj.gov/recreation/index.html and click on community pass on the left menu to establish an account. Once logged in using username and password, users access the drop down menu under Register Now and click 2015 Winter Brochure (as that's where the program was first advertised).

The Scotch Plains-Fanwood girls softball program includes both the town recreation program and Police Athletic League (PAL). The Recreation program teaches Kindergarten thru 8th graders the basics of softball during the spring. Young athletes then have the ability to play for the PAL softball travel program at the 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U and High School levels against neighboring towns during the Summer (Parkway Invitational Softball League) and Fall (Cranford Fall Softball League).

“The SPF Softball recreation program has been building momentum in recent years to the point where we had enough interest to field our first ever 8U PAL travel program,” said Louis Savarese, a volunteer coach for the softball league. “The travel program has only been possible thanks to Jess Hulnik, a committed high school varsity coach making a difference in the lives of our young athletes.”

At the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.

After ten years of following government in Union ...
