    The deadline to register children ages 9-12 for this year’s youth volleyball program has been extended to 5 p.m. tomorrow.

    Registrations are available at the elementary and middle schools, and are also available at the recreation office in Town Hall. Registrations are also available for download through the recreation department link at

    Parents are reminded that all registrations should be submitted to the recreation office in Town Hall. Cost is $30 per player and $15 for each additional child in the same, immediate family who participates. The season is tentatively scheduled to begin next week. All participants will be contacted at least two days prior to the first night of the program.

    Age divisions will be 9-10 and 11-12. Coaches, sponsors and officials for both divisions are needed and appreciated. The 9-10 season will consist of clinic-style sessions which will include drills, an introduction to game rules and scrimmages. The 11-12 season will consist of at least two weeks of practice and a competitive game schedule. All sessions are tentatively scheduled to take place during the week (evenings) at the Ross Aragon Community Center.
