The Board of Directors, all coaches, and any adult (anyone aged 18 or older) wishing to assist the coaches during the season must have a Massachusetts Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) check conducted.  It is a Massachusetts state requirement and Newton Girls Softball policy that the CORI background check must be completed prior to the start of any practices and/or games. 

The volunteer needs to submit their details to NGS once.  NGS will conduct a CORI check each year that you choose to volunteer. Even if you have coached or assisted in the past, please send Doug your information and a photo copy of your valid driver's license.

Click here to download a copy of the information required which should be completed and submitted to Doug Clott at 22 Oakwood Road, Newtonville, MA 02460. If you prefer, you may instead email the documents to Doug at doug@newtongirlssoftball.org.


Game Rules

Much thought has been given to the development of our policies and game rules. They are designed to support the values of Newton Girls Softball. At each grade level the rules become a bit more challenging and closer to regulation ASA fastpitch softball rules. Our rules work well for the vast majority of our players. Understanding, respecting, and adhering to NGS game rules is an expectation for everyone involved.​
