The recreation office is accepting 2009 youth soccer registrations for children ages 5-12 through Friday, Aug. 14.
Registrations are available at the recreation office in Town Hall and are also available online in Adobe format through the recreation department link at www.townofpagosasprings.com.
Cost is $30 per player and $15 for each additional child in the same family who participates. This year’s age divisions will be 5-6, 7-8, 9-10 and 11-12.
The season will begin after Labor Day and run through early October. Games will be played Monday-Thursday. If necessary, games which are rained out will be made up on Saturdays.
When player assessment dates have been determined, all participants who registered to play in the 9-10 and 11-12 divisions will be contacted with the dates, times and location.
Coaches and team sponsors for each division are needed and appreciated. Cost for sponsorship is $150, which includes sponsor’s name on team uniforms, commemorative plaque with team picture and designation in media articles.
