Towanda Sports Center – Recap 2019

And so it ends…another summer in the books, it just flew by!! By the time you read this all our kids will be home and reflecting on another great summer, including on the sports field. Despite not having the amount of inter camp games that we normally have, we still managed to come out with six Wayne County championships and five invitational teams triumphing in one-day tournaments. From the Inter boys baseball who will forever remember their last inning comeback in the semifinals against Equinunk (at the bottom of the last inning with 2 outs, a full count but bases loaded), to our swim champion, to the resurgence of roller hockey under coach Feldman, to our Dorm girls soccer who are still undefeated since  tween summer (18 Wayne County games in the last four years, 239 goals scored, 1 conceded!!), Towanda teams still had a chance to shine! And still, we are VERY highly ranked in the association. We will be back next season!!

Out of all this, the Intra-camp divisional leagues were born, and big plans are already underway for these leagues to take shape next summer; culminating into an all-division, all-camp, all-sports 4-team Superleague, with standings and a final champion!! One of the things I love most about this is that they allow ALL campers to play and express themselves, and their counselors to coach them under the guidance of the specialists.

On top of that we had some amazing intramural games between different Towanda teams. Many were between boys and girls, mostly with the girls being a year older, and many, many, many amazing moments and memories were created and pretty much all the games were close. With Towanda’s sports philosophies in play, in you can imagine the bonds, sportsmanship and great skills that we saw. One such game was the Dorm vs. National Boys soccer game, with the boys providing our “invincibles” with their toughest game yet. With the girls leading 1-0, the boys scored a 35-yard screamer into the top left hand corner in the last seconds of the game. 1-1 meant a shootout, where the girls prevailed, but what a game, and what great scenes of friendship at the end!! 

So much more to say, but out of space and time. It just flies by. We will regroup during the winter, and we will be back, stronger than ever, always looking to be creative, moving forward, using modern coaching and innovative ideas, with our campers and staff growing, and expressing themselves positively. The respect and sportsmanship is wonderful. And so is the future. My very best to the whole Towanda family of campers, families, staff and of course to our directors…be well, be healthy, be happy and positive…and before you know it, we’ll be back!!

This is Coach Lee, signing off, with Towanda Sports Center!! (da-na-na da-na-na)
