In the summer of 1999, Newtown Recreation, a non-profit, family-oriented youth athletic organization of North Fulton County, was formed with the purpose of providing quality youth athletic programs for children in the North Fulton area. Our athletic programs are held at Johns Creek’s Newtown Park on Old Alabama Road and on several fields at local Fulton County schools.
Newtown Recreation is dedicated to increasing the quality of life in our community by providing positive sports experiences for all coaches, parents and children. We believe that each child, regardless of athletic ability, should have an opportunity to grow athletically and socially through participation in athletic programs that are fun and safe.
We believe that kids participate in sports because they want to have fun, make new friends and most importantly, because they want to play! We promote positive coaching methods that offer praise and encouragement to all players. Our programs encourage fun, team play, sportsmanship, individual development and parental participation. We believe that playing the game is the most important reason for the contest and not who wins or loses.
We are a non-profit, self-supported, youth athletic organization of the City of Johns Creek. The day to day operations of Newtown Recreation are managed by 3 full time employees. An all- volunteer board of directors provides oversight and direction.
