Monday is the deadline to register teams for the 2011 adult men’s and women’s basketball leagues.
The recreation office is accepting 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.
Registration forms are available at the recreation department office in Town Hall; team registration fees are $250 per team, plus a $30 fee per player.
The leagues are tentatively scheduled to begin in early March. Call the recreation office at 264-4151, Ext. 231, for more information.
All youth basketball games will be played in the community center; games in the 9-10 division Tuesdays and Thursdays, while games in the 11-12 division will be played Mondays and Wednesdays. The seasons will run through early March.
Schedules for both divisions are available at the recreation office and are also posted in Adobe format on the recreation department page at www.townofpagosasprings.com.
For more information, call 264-4151 Ext. 231 or 232.
The skate pond behind the River Center is open for the season; the skate pond’s hours of operation are from dawn to 10 p.m. every day, except during the nights when ice-maintenance operations are being performed.
Resurfacing of the ice will be scheduled for Monday and Thursday evenings unless weather conditions keep the work from taking place. On those nights, the pond will be closed at 6 p.m.
A minimum ice thickness of four inches will be regularly monitored, but thin spots can occur, and an effort to mark them with orange safety cones will be made. Pond users are requested to leave the safety cones in place.
We also ask that no foreign objects be thrown onto the ice. The pond will remain open until safety concerns require its closure. Enjoy the ice.
