SANATOGA PA – With the squeals and yells of happy children, and the cheers of accompanying adults, the Pottsgrove Soccer Club opened its 2009 season Saturday and Sunday (April 4-5, 2009) with matches at the fields in Gerald Richards Park, Buchert Road. Both youth clubs and PeeWee league teams played.

Playing in Saturday’s windy weather, with gusts of up to 45 mph, was an interesting task, but Sunday’s much milder temperatures, bright sun and considerably lighter breeze brought many families and supporters out to the fields.
A free, three-day soccer clinic – specifically intended for players in the U-8 to U-12 age brackets – will be conducted April 14-16 (2009; Tuesday through Thursday) from 6-8 p.m. in the park, it was announced Monday (April 6, 2009) during the Lower Pottsgrove (PA) Township Board of Commissioners’ meeting. Former players in the Pottsgrove club, as well as coaches and some current college players, will be on hand to offer tips and drills to those in attendance. A crowd of up to 200 participants is expected. No registration is necessary.
The club’s season runs through May (2009).
