Special to The SUN

Pagosa Youth Soccer, in conjunction with the Pagosa Springs High School Pirate soccer players and coach Lindsey Kurt-Mason, invites all 7- to 14-year-olds to participate in a soccer skills clinic.

The clinic will be held June 13-15 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the high school soccer field.

Cost for the three-day clinic is $30. The high school team is using the clinic as a way to raise funds for summer tournament fees.

Skills worked on at the clinic will include shooting, dribbling, chipping, throw-ins, defending, passing, corner kicks, first touch and goalkeeping.

Registration closes the day the clinic begins. Preregistration is encouraged and you may preregister by calling Dorman Diller at 264-4454. Please leave your name, phone number, age and school grade next fall. Forms may be turned in and payments may be made on the first day of the clinic.

Scholarships are also available and no one will be turned away because of the inability to pay. Forms may be downloaded at

Players are encouraged to bring water bottles, shin guards, soccer shoes or tennis shoes and their soccer ball. Please put your name on the items you bring.
