The Evaluations for Girls Softball will take place on the following dates and times:
Saturday, March 8th and Sunday, March 9th – Rutherford High School 100 Gym
1) Junior Division (League age 12, 13 and 14 years as of 12/31/13) – 2pm to 4pm.
Pitchers and Catchers to follow from 4pm to 4:30pm
2) Majors Division (League age 9, 10, and 11 years as of 12/31/13) – 4:30pm to 6:30pm
Pitchers and Catchers to follow from 6:30pm to 7pm.
Players will be evaluated on fielding, throwing, running, and hitting. Players should wear sneakers and have the following with them: bat, glove, and helmet. Catchers are welcome to bring their own gear but it is not necessary.
****12 year old players may be drafted to the Junior Division. However, they will remain and play with their Major Division teams. They will have the opportunity to also play and practice with the Junior Division team. This is being done to allow 12 year olds the opportunity to continue into the post-season and play in the Little League (12 years) All Stars as well as have the added opportunity to play at a higher level of competition (Juniors) and improve their ability dramatically.****
Please note that evaluations are for those players who have the chance to move up to the next level and those who have not played in the League before.
FAMILY OPEN SWIM
It’s never too early to get ready for Summer! Rutherford Recreation is happy to announce that in coordination with the YMCA and the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign, we will again be running Family Swim Nights. The free open swim sessions will be on Friday evenings throughout the month of March from 5:30-7:30PM. Long hair must be secured. Please be sure to RSVP to Recreation at 201-460-3015 so we know how many lifeguards are needed each Friday. Have fun! Happy New Year!!
