Saturday was shirt pickup day at Count Basie Fields for Red Bank Rec soccer, and players were treated to a clinic put on by players from the national champion Brookdale Community College women’s soccer team. Rec director Tamila Bumback tells redbankgreen that enrollment in the teams for children in grades three through eight has doubled from last fall, to 80 players, and a few spots remain open. The Red Bank teams play in the Northern Monmouth Soccer Association. (Photos by John T. Ward. Click to enlarge)

With the first day of spring less than a month away, Memone Crystian, director of Red Banks Parks and Recreation department, knows the throes of winter will soon be replaced by… other types of throws.
Her department has crafted a packed schedule of recreational sports for kids in Kindergarten through 8th grade to enjoy on brand new turf in coming months at Count Basie Fields. And in addition to the traditional baseball, softball and soccer offerings, lacrosse will be on the agenda.
