The Pagosa Springs Recreation Department is offering youth tennis instruction this summer, thanks again to cooperation on behalf of Wyndham Resorts.
The program, which is in its fifth year, is open to youth, ages 8-12. Registrations will be available at the recreation office from Monday, May 9, through Wednesday, May 25. Registrations will also be available through a link on the recreation department page at www.townofpagosasprings.com.
The program will consist of two monthly sessions, one in June and one in July, and will be conducted at the Wyndham tennis courts. Each session will be comprised of two, two-hour practices per week. The tentative plan is to have players ages 8-10 meet Tuesdays and Thursdays 1 p.m.-3 p.m.; players ages 11-13 will meet Mondays and Wednesdays 1 p.m.-3 p.m.
Cost to participate is $30 per monthly session. Participants must have no marking-soled athletic or tennis shoes. The recreation department may have some racquets available, but participants are encouraged to purchase and use their own equipment.
For more information, call Dale Schwicker, program instructor, at 903-3119 or the recreation office at 264-4151, Ext. 232.
Rosters for the coach-pitch division (ages 6-8) are being finalized and an assessment date for this year’s 9-10 and 11-12 divisions is being determined.
On a related note, there is a need for at least three coaches in the coach-pitch division and one coach in the 9-10 division. Anyone interested in becoming a coach should call the recreation office at 264-4151, Ext. 231 or 232.
Games in all divisions are tentatively scheduled to begin in early June; the season will run through early July.
Tee-ball schedules are available at the recreation office and have also been posted on the recreation department page at www.townofpagosasprings.com.
Games will not be canceled due to cold weather, so parents are reminded to dress children accordingly. Games will be canceled due to rain or poor field conditions caused by heavy rain or snow.
For more information regarding this year’s tee-ball season, call the recreation office at 264-4151, Ext. 231 or 232.
