The Jefferson Township Recreation is accepting online registrations for the 10th Fall season of the Challenger Soccer Program for special needs children. Boys and girls age 5 – 18 (or the completion of high school) with physical or mental challenges are invited to join this program.

Scott Luker, a resident of Jefferson Township, will return to manage the league. The games will be played on the large side field of Fireman’s Field located at 750 Route 15 South in Lake Hopatcong with the first game scheduled to take place on Saturday September 16, 2017 at 10 am. Registration is open and the participant can join at any time.

This program offers players the chance to participate in one of the most popular sports worldwide. Participants will play with the same equipment and by the same rules as in any soccer game with the exception that they have the option to use the “buddy” system for assistance. Every player on the roster plays in the game, and no score is kept. Once again, thanks to fundraising efforts, the registration fee (jersey, cap, and award) will be waived for this season. 

Volunteers are needed to play, manage, umpire, assistant coach, serve as a team parent, or become a “buddy” to a player.  For program questions, contact Scott Luker at 973-270-8356 or at slairforceone@optonline.net

Registration for this program is only online through Community Pass so log on to https://register.communitypass.net/reg/index.cfm and if you already have an existing account, sign in or follow the prompts to set up your own personal account through the Jefferson Township community.  In either case, chose “Fall/Winter Season 2017” to register.  As there is no fee to participate, there will be no amount due.   

If you experience difficulty in registering online, you can log on to www.jeffersontownhip.net, click on the “Form Center” link on the left side of the home page, and scroll down to the Recreation Department to find “Community Pass Online Registration Instructions” with step-by-step directions.  If you still need assistance, please contact the Recreation office at 973-663-8404 x4 or cpunturieri@jeffersontownship.net for assistance.
