2020 HS Boys Summer Team Soccer Camp

Coaches Jones has coordinated for the HS Boys Soccer Team to participate in a Team Camp this summer at Bucknell University July 10th - 13th.  The camp is open to all boys that will be Freshman or above in the fall of 2020.  Additional information about the camp is available by clicking Online Flyer for Camp.  Registration for this years camp will be handled through the Booster Club.  These changes are outlined below.


Changes for Camp Registration this year:

  • The Booster Club will be handling the registration for all of the players this year to avoid the $30 convenience fee for online registration and payment.
  • In order for Bucknell to hold our spot, we need to have a commitment of those attending by the end of March.  A $50.00 non-refundable deposit will be due to the Soccer Booster Club no later than March 31, 2020.  Checks can be made payable to SSBC.  The remainder of the fee will be due prior to the actual date of camp.
  • We wanted everyone to have the opportunity to participate in the upcoming fundraisers in order to decrease your camp cost.  There will be multiple fundraisers coordinated in order for all players to earn money toward the cost of  their camp.  The more you sell during the fundraisers, the less you will pay toward camp.  More information to follow.

Special note from a local soccer team parent:


Good Afternoon High School Soccer Parents,


I wanted to reach out on behalf of the team, coaches, and booster club regarding team camp this summer.  There are other folks working on the details of the camp and I don't want to step on the toes of their hard work.  They will share more details regarding camp as they are coordinated.  This message is to reinforce the importance of a team camp.


As a former player and coach at multiple levels, I can't over-accentuate the team camp experience.  It gives upperclassmen the chance to bond a team under their leadership, and it gives underclassmen the chance to integrate and experience the "team".  It seems simple, but it creates an environment where the boys want to play together and work together.  It creates leaders, and it is the opportunity to create a positive culture for future upperclassmen.  Memories created with friends, teammates, & even opposing teams, can last a lifetime.  The positive experiences at a team camp cannot be understated.


Please don't take this message as pressuring you into something which is unrealistic for your family.  Scheduling and finances are 2 prohibitive factors, and everyone understands those limitations.  Parents have always been willing to carpool, so don't let transportation be an issue.  Please reach out to a coach or the booster club if there is a question or concern.


Thanks for your consideration
