Register the kids for gymnastics

Registration for the second session of gymnastics begins Monday.

Through a partnership with Pagosa Springs Middle School and local instructor Jennifer Martin, the Town of Pagosa Springs Recreation Department is offering this program for kids age 3 and up.

Classes, which will be strictly limited to no more than 10 students per age group, begin April 16 and will run through May 17. 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 and/or Thursdays (parents have the option to choose one day or the other, but not both) from 4-4:50 p.m. Classes for ages 8 and 9 will be held Tuesdays and/or Thursdays from 5-5:50 p.m. Classes for ages 10 and up will be held Tuesdays and/or Thursdays from 6-6:50 p.m.

In addition, classes will be held Fridays from 2-2:50 p.m. for ages 4 and 5, and an introductory class for ages 3 and 4 will be held Fridays from 3-3:50 p.m. Class size for Fridays will be limited to eight.

Since classes will only meet once per week, registration cost has been reduced from $77 to $35. Registrations will be available at the recreation office in Town Hall and will also be posted in Adobe format on the recreation department page at www.townofpagosasprings.com.

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

Rosters may carry as many as 15 players; players are eligible to participate if they were 16 years of age or older as of March 1. Players may be added to the roster at any time throughout the season, but participants who have not paid the player fee before the start of their second game will not be permitted to play.

Skate pond

The skate pond behind the River Center has been closed for the season.

Higher temperatures and thinning ice have resulted in unsafe conditions; please refrain from venturing onto the ice. We also ask that no foreign objects be thrown onto the ice.

Signs indicating the pond’s closure have been posted in the adjacent parking lot.
