Good evening everyone, (8/28/20)

     I hope this email finds you well.  We are writing to let you know that unfortunately we were informed today that due to the growing Covid-19 cases in town, the New Milford Covid-19 Task Force, consisting of local town officials and heads of various Borough Departments, made the difficult decision to cancel ALL RECREATION AND TRAVEL sports for the upcoming FALL season.

     Please know that this decision was not reached lightly.  Throughout the course of the summer and as New Milford’s Covid-19 numbers continued to not only remain steady, but actually decreased, the Recreation department worked diligently to prepare for the upcoming fall soccer and softball season.  This included holding numerous meetings and discussions with town and league officials and putting various plans in place to ensure the safety and health of all participants.   Unfortunately, due to the recent spike of cases in town – 56 in August alone – local officials were left with no choice but to cancel recreation sports altogether and err on the side of caution.  While we all want our kids to play, their health and the health their parents, coaches, and loved ones remains our first priority.

     Although the recreation fall sports season will not be moving forward, we are hopeful that recreation and travel outdoor sports will resume in the spring – barring any other unforeseen circumstances.  In fact, we are hopeful that the spring soccer season will look much more like the fall competitive seasons and will include a 6th-8th grade soccer division which we have not had recently.  These and other changes will be made to account for the long layoff the kids in town have had.

     Please know that we are as disappointed as you are in this decision and will continue to work tirelessly to get the kids back on the field again.  Until then, please stay safe and healthy during these unprecedented times.
You will receive information in the coming days regarding refunds.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at:

Thank you
New Milford Recreation
