Team Camp Update: Decision Delayed

Parents/Players,

First and foremost thank you to those players and families that responded to the Bucknell Team Camp.  Due to current circumstances I will be holding the paper registrations and deposit checks until we gain a better understanding of how this crisis unfolds in the near future.  If you have yet to commit to the camp by submitting the registration please email Coach Sostack so he can fully evaluate our team numbers.  Stay healthy and look after your neighbors.  Please remember that the district is discouraging any group gatherings on the campus over the next two weeks.  If you have any concerns or questions please email Coach Sostack at james_sostack@etownschools.org

Remember to Save the Date: Quad and Bucknell Team Camps.

Bucknell Team Camp Commitment Request for Senior High Players

Parents and Players,

Please respond by March 13th

The upcoming seniors have selected to return to Bucknell Team Camp for our summer training.  The team camp is from July 10th – 13th (Session One).  To confirm our reservation the coaching staff request that players return the paper deposit form to Coach Sostack with the required $100 deposit.  The total camp cost is $475 for a returning team.  To avoid a computer registration surcharge online, the team is requested to bring the check deposit. payable to Brendan Nash. and completed registration form DIRECTLY to Coach Sostack.  We will report back on the total number of interested participants before mailing the registrations to Bucknell.  The camp provides senior level players with formation training and objectives set by Coach Sostack and directed by a selected college coach.  We have one team reservation so we have limited spaces with returning varsity players receiving priority.  Please email to make inquiries for younger players to james_sostack@etownschools.org.

Link for Bucknell paper registration form

Fundraising for team camp will be released soon.  We are exploring the option of having players reach out for family/friend sponsorship or conducting a sponsored challenge.  If you have creative ideas that have a financial impact please contact Coach Sostack.
