Youth soccer cleat swaps Sept. 7-8

Youth soccer season begins Sept. 7, and this year’s cleat swap for the 9-10 and 11-12 divisions will be held the same day at Yamaguchi Park at 5 p.m.

The cleat swap for the 5-6 and 7-8 divisions will be held at the elementary school Sept. 8 and will begin at 5 p.m.

There will be areas adjacent to the fields designated for donation and trade of soccer socks, cleats and shin guards for all age divisions. The cleat swaps are free events; all players and parents who registered for this year’s league are welcome to attend.

Parents who registered children for this year’s league and have not yet heard from a head coach should call the office at 264-4151 Ext. 231 or 232 to obtain roster information.

On a related note, children who have been placed on a waiting list will be added to teams if and when spots become available in their respective age divisions.

Three teams from Dulce, N.M. (ages 5-6, 7-8 and 9-10) have recently agreed to participate in the league and will make the trip to Pagosa Springs each Thursdays from Sept. 9-Oct. 7. Schedules for all divisions have been posted on the recreation department link at

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, local teams in the 5-6 and 7-8 divisions will occasionally play Thursdays against Dulce at the elementary school; the 9-10 division will always play Thursdays against Dulce at Yamaguchi Park.
