Event: Sign up for summer sports camps
Where: Throughout West Islip
About: With students across West Islip about to start the final month of the 2010-11 school year parents now have the opportunity to register their children for one or more of the many sports camps that take place throughout the hamlet
Boys and girls looking to hone their skills in lacrosse, soccer, baseball, softball, tennis, football, basketball, golf, volleyball, gymnastics, wrestling, and track & field have an opportunity to learn from the high school’s coaches and varsity level players.
For example, the boys’ lacrosse camp hosted each July by Scott Craig, head coach of the West Islip High School boys’ lacrosse team, includes Craig and his coaching staff and players, many of who have been state champions. Youngsters have the unique opportunity to learn from these coaches and players.
More information on the summer sports camps hosted by high school coaches can be obtained on the school district website. In addition, information on camps offered by the West Islip Soccer Club can be obtained by visiting the club’s website.
