Dates set for Pirate volleyball camps

The 2009 pirate volleyball camp dates will be as follows. Athletes entering ninth-12th grades will meet Monday, June 29, to Wednesday, July 1, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Pagosa Springs High School Gymnasium. Indoor and outdoor volleyball skills will be the focus of the camp, hence a hat, sunscreen and a longsleeve T-shirt are highly recommended.

The annual pirate “little spikers” camp for kids entering grades five through eighth grades will also be held at the high school, Monday, Aug. 10 through Wednesday Aug. 12, from 9 a.m. to noon. Court shoes and a longsleeve T-shirt are requisite for this group. An introduction to the game, team play, and basic fundamentals will be covered as the camp precedes the opening of the junior high sports season.

Camp registration forms are available at the Town of Pagosa Springs Recreation Office. Although pre-registration is not required, a release form must be signed by a parent prior to participation. Registration will also be available on-site 30 minutes before the start of each camp. Cost for either camp is $30.
