Pottsgrove To Host Camps For Five Sports This Summer

POTTSTOWN PA – Summer sports camps are returning to the Pottsgrove School District, undoubtedly with coaches’ hopes for another outstanding fall athletic season.

The Board of School Directors last Tuesday (May 8, 2012) granted its permission for the summer operation of:

  • Football camp, for students entering grades 4-9, supervised by head football Coach Rick Pennypacker, at a cost $65 for district residents, and $75 for non-residents;
  • Soccer camp, for students entering grades 1-8, supervised by head soccer Coach Jay Witkowski, at a cost of $75 per person;
  • Field hockey camp, for students entering grades 3-8, supervised by head field hockey coach Christine Campbell, at a cost of $75 per person;
  • Wrestling camp, for students entering grades 6-12, supervised by head wrestling Coach Jeff Madden, at no cost to participants; and
  • Basketball camp, for students entering grades 4-8, supervised by head girls basketball Coach Mike Brendlinger, at a cost of $50 per person of $40 per person for families with two or more participants.

No starting dates for the camps were announced. In all cases, coaches are volunteering their time and will not be compensated, the board noted.

Directors also officially approved operation of summer school programs for the elementary and secondary schools.

The elementary program operates on federal funds with no direct cost to the district, according to administrators. It will provide reading instruction to eligible students. At the secondary (middle and high) schools, staff members will be hired based on enrollment.
