Deadlines loom for youth tennis, softball

SUN Columnist

Monday is the deadline to register for the June session of youth tennis.

The program, which is open to youths ages 6-12, will consist of two monthly sessions, one in June (begins June 4) and one in July (begins July 8), and will be conducted at the Wyndham tennis courts.

The tentative plan is to have players ages 6-8 meet Monday-Thursday 1-2 p.m.; players ages 9-12 will meet Monday-Thursday 2-3 p.m.

Registrations are available at the recreation office and will be accepted through June 3 for the June session. Registrations are also available through a link on the recreation department page at www.townofpagosasprings.com.

Cost to participate is $30 per monthly session. Participants must have no marking-soled athletic or tennis shoes. The recreation department may have some racquets available, but participants are encouraged to purchase and use their own equipment.

For more information, call Dale Schwicker, program instructor, at 903-3119, or the recreation office at 264-4151, Ext. 232.

Softball

The Pagosa Springs Recreation Department is accepting team registrations for the 2012 adult men’s and coed softball leagues through June 3.

Gymnastics

Registration for the summer session of gymnastics is now open.

Through an ongoing partnership with Pagosa Springs Middle School and local instructor Jennifer Martin, the Town of Pagosa Springs Recreation Department is offering this summer program for ages 3 and up.

Classes, which will be strictly limited to no more than 10 students per age group (eight for ages 3-5), begin June 11 and will run through July 18.

Excluding the week of July 4, classes will be held in the middle school “mat room” (wrestling room) according to the following schedule:

Classes for ages 6 and 7 will be held Tuesdays from 3-3:50 p.m. Classes for ages 8 and 9 will be held Tuesdays from 4-4:50 p.m. Classes for ages 10 and up will be held Tuesdays from 5-5:50 p.m.

In addition, classes will be held Thursdays from 3-3:50 p.m. for ages 4 and 5, and an introductory class for ages 3 and 4 will be held from 4-4:50 p.m. An intermediate class consisting of mixed ages will be held from 5-5:50 p.m. (students in this class will need to be pre-approved by instructor).

Cost is $35 for the complete session, but parents will also have the option to pay $7 per class if attending all sessions is not feasible.

Registrations are available at the recreation office in Town Hall and have been posted in Adobe format on the recreation department page at www.townofpagosasprings.com.

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

Adult soccer

The Pagosa Springs Recreation Department is exploring the feasibility of initiating a privately-organized, six-on-six adult soccer league this summer.

The tentative plan is to play games at Yamaguchi Park every Sunday from 2:30-4:30 p.m. from June 8–July 3. A fee of $200 per team will be collected to cover field-lining and prep, and any excess funds will be donated to the junior high soccer program.

For more information, call Chris Smith at 264-5991, or the recreation office at 264-4151, Ext. 232.

Baseball

Rosters and schedules for all divisions have been finalized and teams continue to practice at the high school ball fields.

Schedules have been posted on the recreation department page at www.townofpagosasprings.com.

Games in all divisions will begin next week; the season will run through early July. For more information on this year’s program, call 264-4151, Ext. 231 or 232.

Horseshoes

Horseshoe pitching will continue through the summer at South Pagosa Park.

Players of all abilities (ages 12 and up) are welcome. This activity is for anyone wanting to learn the game and how to pitch, as well as anyone who already knows and wants to improve. Physical requirements are minimal.

There is plenty of room so, if players desire, they can practice by themselves until comfortable. If anyone would like instruction, veteran players are usually present to provide advice.

The fun begins each Wednesday at 4 p.m. Horseshoes will be provided. There is no cost involved.

For more information, call Mark Bergon at 264-2838.
