Youth soccer action starts Sept. 2

Youth soccer rosters for all divisions have been finalized, and schedules for all divisions are available at the recreation office in Town Hall and through the recreation department link at www.townofpagosasprings.com.

Practices have begun at the elementary school and Yamaguchi Park fields, and parents who have not yet heard from a head coach should call the recreation office to obtain roster information.

The season begins Sept. 2 and will run through early October.

The following is a breakdown of the schedule for the opening week of the season:

• Wednesday, Sept. 2 (all games at the elementary school fields) — In the 5-6 division, Black faces Gold on Field No. 2 at 5:30 p.m. and Royal takes on Orange at 5:30 p.m. on Field No. 3. In the 7-8 division, White faces Maroon at 5:20 p.m. on Field No. 1 and Royal faces Black at 6:15 p.m. on Field 1.

• Thursday, Sept. 3 — In the 5-6 division, White plays Dulce on Field No. 2 at the elementary school at 5:30 p.m. and Black faces Dulce at 6:15 p.m. on Field No. 2. In the 7-8 division, Dulce faces Gold at 5:20 p.m. at the elementary school on Field No. 1, and Black faces Dulce at 6:15 p.m. on Field No. 1.

In the 9-10 division at Yamaguchi Park (the new sports complex), Dulce plays Black at 5:20 p.m. on Field No. 1, and Gold takes on Dulce at 6:20 p.m. on Field No. 1. In the 11-12 division at Yamaguchi Park, White takes on Black at 5:20 p.m. on Field No. 2, and Gold faces Dulce at 6:20 p.m. on Field No. 2

Please note that games for the 5-6 and 7-8 divisions have been 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 (or each other) at Yamaguchi Park.
