PORT ANGELES — Adults who enjoy recreation soccer, volleyball or basketball will see a change in those opportunities this year, with volleyball and basketball starting earlier and splitting into two seasons.
First up will be the Peninsula Soccer League, a coed league that will kick off Sept. 3 and run through mid-November with matches on Sundays on the new turf field at Peninsula College. People can register their team, or get on the school’s free agent list, by emailing men’s soccer coach Jake Hughes at jahughes @pencol.edu. A second soccer league will be held in the spring.
The Peninsula Volleyball League, also a coed league, will start in late September and run through mid-December on Tuesday and Thursday nights in the Peninsula College gym. People can register their team or get on a free agent list by emailing associate dean for athletics Rick Ross at email@example.com. A second volleyball league will start in January.
The third league to launch this fall will be an adult 4-on-4 basketball league that will run from late September to mid-December on either Monday or Wednesday nights. People can register their team or ask about joining a team by emailing new head men’s basketball coach Bryce Jacobson at firstname.lastname@example.org. The college plans to run a traditional 5-on-5 league that will start in January.
The player fee for all adult leagues is $45. Individuals not on a team will pay that fee after confirmation they are connected to a team.
Peninsula College took over running the adult recreation leagues from the Port Angeles Parks and Recreation in fall 2022. The proceeds of the leagues support Pirate Athletics.
