Reservoir High School Boosters Sports Camp
Come out to Reservoir High School for sports camp the week of July 17-21.  The camp is designed for rising 2nd-9th graders and features different sports everyday.  Last year we played: flag football, soccer, capture the football, basketball, volleyball, floor hockey, tennis, modified softball, team handball, scooter games and many many others.  The camp is designed so that each sport/activity lasts roughly 1 hour, so campers will have the opportunity to play many different sports each day.  Phil Ranker runs the camp and teaches Physical Education at Lime Kiln middle school.  He has coached multiple sports at the high school level (currently girls soccer at Reservoir HS, previously lacrosse and basketball).  Please visit http://rankerssportscamp.weebly.com/ or email phillip_ranker@hcpss.org for any questions.
