The SPFSA is supporting the efforts of Park Middle School students Dallas Lorenzetti, Hayden Widder, Matt Drubulis and Benji Tucker to raise awareness of the importance for Concussion Baseline Testing.
Read the letter from Chris De Maria President of SPFSA on concussion baseline testing:
Our Sports and Recreation programs have been partially funded by a grant received by the Borough of Fanwood, NJ from the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs: Recreational Opportunities for Individuals with Disabilities (ROID) to help bring innovative, community-based recreational programs to children with special needs. The support of Mayor Mahr and the Borough of Fanwood has helped us create a model of programming that can be replicated in other municipalities throughout New Jersey.
It has been noticed that there are water/sports drinks bottles and other trash left on fields both after practices and games. This is a reminder to our coaches and the parents/guardians of the players to help keep our fields clean. Please pick up any trash after the practice and games end and put them in garbage cans. Leave your fields cleaner than when you arrived. And don't forget to represent SPF well at away matches by doing the same.
Thank you for your cooperation in maintaining clean playing conditions for our young players.
Please visit the newly introduced Field status update Facebook page for the latest update on the status of the fields. This is the ONLY location for the latest field updates.
This page is updated by three different entities - the Scotch Plains recreation department, Fanwood recreation department and Board of Education.To ensure accuracy of the latest information so please provide each entity the opportunity to update the page.
