2020 Recreation Softball Season

REgal Family,

Due to Governor Murphy’s directive for school closures, social distancing measures and the closure of parks for activities, the REgal Executive Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the spring recreation softball season.

REgal will issue everyone that has registered a credit that can be applied to any future REgal sport. If you require other arrangements, please contact Beth Chinigo, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

It is our sincere hope that we can find a way to bring everyone back to the fields this year, whether it be summer, or the fall. We are closely monitoring public health officials and the local government for all guidance on how to proceed. REGAL is dedicated to doing the best thing for the safety and well-being of all our players, families, volunteers, and fans. We will do our best to provide the girls of River Edge playing opportunities when appropriate.

Thank you all for your support, understanding, and patience.
