Children who will be 9, 10, 11 or 12 years old as of Jan. 1, 2010, are eligible to register. The seasons will not begin until early January.

Registrations will be available at the recreation office in Town Hall and will also be available online in Adobe format at www.townofpagosasprings.com (click on the town departments link, then the recreation link).

Registrations will also be supplied to local schools; parents are reminded to return completed registrations to the recreation office.

Cost is $30 per player and $15 for each additional child in the same, immediate family who participates. Checks and money orders should be made payable to Town of Pagosa Springs.

Coaches and team sponsors for these divisions are needed and appreciated. Cost for sponsorship is $150, which includes sponsor’s name on team uniforms, commemorative plaque with team picture and recognition in media articles.

For more information call 264-4151, Ext. 231 or 232.

Adult volleyball

If interest is sufficient, the recreation department will implement an adult indoor, coed volleyball program from late November through early January.

The intent is to have six-person teams playing indoors on a men’s-height net. If at least four teams express interest, a league will be formed and open gym will commence in late November, with official games beginning in early December. Teams will be guaranteed at least 10 matches.

The team registration fee is $250 and each player will be required to pay a $30 player fee. Game dates, times and sites have yet to be finalized, but Monday and Wednesday evenings after 6 p.m. is the preliminary schedule. However, game times could be as late as 9 p.m. depending on gym availability.

Registrations will be accepted immediately through Friday, Nov. 13. Contact Andy Rice, recreation supervisor, at 264-4151, Ext. 231 for more information.
