Youth soccer sign-ups

The Newman Recreation Department is accepting registration for 2020 youth soccer in hopes that a program can be held.

Recreation Director Alicia Mendoza said she anticipates knowing in early July whether the season can be held, but in the meantime is preparing for that eventuality.

The co-ed program is open to players ages 5 to 14 (must be 5 by Sept. 1, and if 14 must be in the eighth grade).

Fee is $50 per player, with a $5 discount for additional siblings. A $10 fee is added for participants who live outside the Newman-Crows Landing Unified School District.

Registration forms may be downloaded from the city website at For those unable to download a form, registration information may be picked up from 2-5 p.m. weekdays from the teen center on Hardin Road. The center is only open to allow parents to pick up registration forms.

Registration is accepted through June 26, followed by late registration/waiting list from June 29-July 3 (registration is $60 during late sign-ups).

Parents are asked to drop completed registration forms and payment (checks only are accepted) at Newman City Hall, 938 Fresno St. Checks will be returned if the season is not played.

Volunteer coaches and assistant coaches are also needed.

Call 862-4440 for additional information about the soccer program.
