Last Turf Tuesday (2/28) this week before spring sports


Spring sports will begin so we will have to find another time slot (if possible) to continue our turf open gyms. It will be a challenge! Our last Turf Tuesday is tomorrow, Feb 28th. Continue to visit the website for updates for open gyms, summer camps, and how to prepare for the Fall! Special thanks for Coach Andy and Coach Jereme for running the Turf Tuesdays. Remember we continue to offer weight lifting supervised by Coach Sostack, Coach Davis, and Coach Derr. Upperclassmen must commit to getting stronger.

Team Camp 2023: Bucknell University July 18th-21st


We are in the process of collecting player names to assess our participation at Bucknell Team Camp held July 18th – 21st. Please email Coach Sostack at james_sostack@etownschools.org by February 17th to confirm your son’s participation: email using RE: Bucknell Camp 2023 providing player’s name and grade. The camp cost remains $480 for residential camp players. Last summer we provided $100 per player from our Big E Booster Camp to help offset the expense. Upcoming freshman boys are eligible to participate depending on the response of the upperclassmen. We had two teams last camp which included upcoming 9th graders. Please respond ASAP so we can evaluate if this camp has sufficient interest before exploring alternative local camps.

Don’t forget to also “save the date” for our annual evening Quad Camp for both senior and junior high players coached by college coaches – June 19-22 – cost last year was $40 for the entire week.

Go Bears.

On February 24 from 8am-9:15am the Athletic Department is offering a session from the positive coaching alliance for student athletes and coaches.  The session will focus on being a better teammate. All athletes are encouraged to attend the session.  If you want to attend you need to sign up in the athletic office with Mrs. Deardorff. 

This workshop for student age and older provides a deeper view into how teammates can help each other improve, one of the three key components in PCA’s original workshop for student
-athletes titled Becoming A Triple-Impact Competitor®.
Participants in this research-based interactive workshop learn why and how even top professional
athletes commit to Filling Emotional Tanks of their teammates (i.e., providing specific, truthful praise
and a generally supportive environment). Athletes actually begin practicing this approach to
leadership in the workshop itself! Portions of the workshop also explain how all athletes, regardless of starting status or class year, can contribute leadership. Players learn how
to communicate with each other, and push each other, positively, especially in difficult situations.

Quad Camp: JUNE 19-22 : Cost: $50 : evening training camp (6-8:30pm) with selected college coaches : Grades 7-12
