Register now for adult basketball

The Pagosa Springs Recreation Department is now accepting team registrations for the 2011 adult men’s and women’s basketball leagues.

Staff will accept registrations for men’s recreation league, men’s competitive league and women’s recreation league. However, if there are not at least four teams registered for the women’s league by the deadline, the women’s league will be canceled.
