Ridgewood NJ, the Church League is once again getting the shaft with field usage in the Village. In recently procured emails ,the Ridgewood blog has learned that Church League officials will not know until Friday night  whether they have fields available for the weekend .

“We have had a number of Somerville NW and SE uses on Sunday afternoons this
year.  Any use would be subject to being checked with me on Friday to
confirm if still available and which field.”



I am not sure what you are saying.  Can we are can we not have fields.  I do
not understand why I league that is now 25 years old and is part of the
community cannot get fields.


The Church league has been around for 25 years .Clearly this is no way to run a season . But the bigger question remains who is using all the taxpayer funded fields 24/7 in the Village of Ridgewood . Who are these people playing sports into the late hours and where do they come from? Why does the Village really have a filed shortage ? Who decides who plays and who does not and who screens who is playing to begin with?
