Youth soccer registration, assessments Aug. 20

SUN Columnist

Registration for youth soccer has closed and player assessment day for the 9-10 and 11-12 youth soccer divisions is Tuesday, Aug. 20, at the Yamaguchi Park athletic fields.

The 9-10 assessment will begin at 5:20 p.m. and run until 6:30; the 11-12 assessment will begin at 6:45 and last about an hour.

All players and coaches in these divisions should attend.

The draft for the 9-10 and 11-12 divisions will be Wednesday, Aug. 21, at 6 p.m. in Town Hall. All head coaches in these divisions should attend.

Rosters for the 5-6 and 7-8 divisions will be finalized by the end of next week, and schedules for all divisions will be available by the end of next week, as well.

The season will begin after Labor Day and run through early October. Games will be played Monday-Thursday.

Games for the 5-6 and 7-8 divisions have been tentatively scheduled for Mondays and Wednesdays at the elementary school soccer fields, while the 9-10 and 11-12 divisions will play Tuesdays and Thursdays at Yamaguchi Park, on South 5th Street.

However, since teams from Dulce, N.M., will again be included in the league, local teams in the 5-6 and 7-8 divisions will occasionally play Thursdays against Dulce at the elementary school; the 9-10 and 11-12 divisions will always play Thursdays against Dulce at Yamaguchi Park.

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

Sand volleyball

This year’s sand volleyball clinic for ages 9-12 continues on Wednesdays at the South Pagosa Park sand courts, through the end of the month.

The clinic, which is held from 9:30–11:30 a.m., consists of practice-style sessions, which will include drills, an introduction to game rules and scrimmages.

For more information, contact the community center at 264-4152 or the recreation office at 264-4151, Ext. 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.
