Etown Boys soccer program would like to congratulate another graduating senior soccer boy, Aiden Weaver.  Although Aiden was not permitted to play for his school program due to U.S. Academy restrictions , he had a remarkable high school soccer career having played for the United States National Team.  Aiden would often share his passion for soccer by  playing at the summer pick up games with his high school friends.  Good luck Aiden!

Bucknell Team Camp and Quad Camp Updates

Parents and Players,

I thought you may appreciate an update on the status of both the Quad Camp in late June and Bucknell Team camp in early July.  We are awaiting instructions from PIAA before cancelling any of these training opportunities.

Quad camp that is held at Hempfield High School as a joint training initiative among 4 schools for both Senior and Junior High program – coached by college coaches under the direction of Head Coach Sostack.  We have delayed signing up for this camp until we get a final direction from the school districts.

Bucknell Team Camp:  Parents that have submitted the required paper registration and $100 check deposit for this senior high training camp are instructed to await final PIAA approval.  Coach Sostack has your registration and checks at this time.  We continue to have active conversations with the Bucknell coaching staff who have not cancelled their camp.  They are examining alternative dates in August – Coach Sostack will communicate any date changes to reconfirm your interest and your approval to submit the registration.

Individual training is highly recommended.  Do individualized ball work especially dutch footwork to master one v. one skills.  Start running – fitness is important.  AND start watching soccer as it comes back on TV…learn the formations and the movement of players.  

Contact Coach Sostack with questions:  james_sostack@etownschools.org

Spring Workout: May 4th : Week One

Parents and Players,

It’s time to get fit for the upcoming Fall Season.  Coach Derr, our strength and conditioning coach, has mapped out a six week program.  Don’t forget it important that the boys are working on their individual ball skills (footwork, trapping, etc).  Please take note of the introduction to the fitness program by Coach Derr.

“Having an actual field is great, but not necessary if the players measure things off or at least “eyeball it.”  They can also do the work on some stuff by just running for the time intervals.  Not knowing what condition they are presently in, I would encourage them to push themselves, but also to be sure to pay attention to their bodies.  They may be sleeping more than normal, sitting more than normal or off of their feet more than normal and if they jump right back into things it could cause some aches & pains or some muscle soreness/strains/pulls.  Bottom line, they can alter things as they wish if they need to their level, but they absolutely must be smart” .   Please continue to practice social distancing .  Use the link to download week one fitness program.
