By Tom Carosello
SUN Columnist

Registration for this year’s 9- and 10-year-old and 11- and 12-year-old youth basketball leagues will begin Monday and run through Dec. 21.

Children who will be 9, 10, 11 or 12 years old as of Jan. 1, 2013, are eligible to register. The seasons will not begin until early January.

Registration forms 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 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.

7-8 basketball

Schedules for the 7-8 youth basketball program are available at the recreation office in Town Hall and have also been posted on the recreation department link at www.townofpagosasprings.com.

Games are tentatively scheduled to begin the first week of December. Due to the large number of participants and limited amount of gym space available during the holiday season, games may be scheduled Monday-Thursday at either 5:15 p.m., 6:15 p.m. or 7:15 p.m. through late December. All games will be played in the Ross Aragon Community Center gymnasium.

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

Soccer photos

Coaches and parents who ordered youth soccer photos can contact Jeff Laydon at Pagosa Photography, 264-3686, to arrange pick up of their orders. The recreation office will provide sponsors with team plaques and pictures as soon as they are available.

The recreation staff would also like to thank Mr. Laydon for accommodating another busy schedule during this year’s youth soccer season.

This year marks the 16th year Jeff has offered professional photography service to our programs while donating all of the team photographs used in the commemorative plaques free of charge; thanks again.
