Barnstead Parks And Recreation


On July 1, 2015, Barnstead Parks & Recreation will begin accepting registrations for fall soccer for children entering kindergarten (or age 5) through grade 6.  Registration may be completed online at, or by printing out a registration form and waiver from the BPR website.   Signed waivers and payments (and registration form if by paper) should be left in the BPR lock box located outside Barnstead Town Hall.  Please be sure that payments are securely attached to registration forms, and that the player’s name(s) are written on the check’s memo line.  Registrations are not accepted inside by Town Hall staff.  Fees are $35.00 per player, with a cap of $70.00 per family.


In order to form teams, order uniforms and meet league reporting deadlines, all players must be registered no later than August 1. Applications received after that date will be waitlisted and subject to a $10.00 late fee when and if placement on a team becomes possible.  Important: incomplete registrations, meaning those received without a signed waiver or payment in full will be waitlisted on August 1 even if the registration form is received prior to that date.


Volunteers are sought to serve as coaches and assistant coaches for all levels (K-6).  Please contact BPR on Facebook or at [email protected] if you are interested in coaching.  If there is interest and volunteers to run it, Soccer Tots for three and four year olds will be offered again this season.  The registration fee for Soccer Tots is $25.00, which also counts toward the $70.00 family cap.  BPR thanks you for your support of its programs and volunteers. 



A Thank You Note To The Towns Of Barnstead And Alton

Barnstead exchange.jpg

Exchange Students (left to right): Shaimaa, Morgane, Kite, Martin, and Jule.


We are Shaimaa from Palestine, Morgane from France , “Kite” from Thailand, Martin from Spain, and Jule from Germany, and we have been your Prospect Mountain High School exchange students for the 2014-2015 school year.  We don’t even know where to begin to thank this wonderful community for your hospitality, because we have all had such an incredible year.


Everyone at Prospect Mountain has been so amazing, helping us not just settle in, but including us in the whole culture of the school.  Principal Fitzpatrick, the teachers, coaches, guidance, and the staff have given so much of themselves to us, and we simply would not have had such a fantastic experience without all of you on our side.  Likewise, we want to thank the support of the School Board for the exchange program, because we feel so privileged to have been part of this experience.


We are glad that we were able to share our five different countries and cultures with all of you, and are proud of all the things we have accomplished here.  Because of this year, we feel our futures will be far brighter now, with so many new doors open to us.


To our friends at school, we thank you for sharing so much with us and for giving us the full American experience by including us in everything.  But our greatest thanks go to our host families, because if it weren’t for their kindness and love, we would not have had the chance to experience this.  We will forever be your sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, even when we are far away.


We also want to send out a special thanks to Kris Hales, our PAX community coordinator.  She is the greatest coordinator you could dream of and we loved having her in our lives.  Thank you all so much for everything, from your 2014-2015 Prospect Mountain Exchange Students.  You have all made our year one that we will never forget!


If you want to learn more about the program, call Kris at 269-7760.
