Congratulations to the (2019-2020) PMBS team for earning the United Soccer Coaches Association Team Academic Award!

I’m proud of all of you!

On a personal note thank you to all of the Seniors for your contributions. My hope for you is to take something with you that you have learned from being on the team and carry it with you into manhood. I wish the best for each one of you.

To the returning players: If we are to win a Championship everyone must play at a very competitive level as much as possible. Discipline, Commitment and Hard Work will get us there!

Parents, I understand the financial sacrifice and time commitment involved in having your son play at a highly competitive level. Thank you for whatever you can do (or are currently doing) to help make this happen.

Regards- Coach Taylor

INDOOR SOCCER

As was discussed with the boys, all players need to be playing at a more competitive level if we are to experience more success. There is an opportunity to play indoor soccer with their teammates this winter. Please contact Liz Fredericks if interested @ teachmagic@comcast.net

Message from Athletic Director

It was brought to my attention that there are several groups of parents (both at the Middle School and High School levels) that are planning food events to mark the end of the soccer season on Monday 10/26.  And that they will take place on or near the soccer fields and in at least one version would include delivered pizza plus food items brought by families.
You may certainly celebrate the players post game and hand out certificates/pins/letters after your game. I will have the sound system available for use. Masks will need to be worn by players, coaches, and families as they have all season.
What cannot happen is for  a “mini-banquet” to take place after the game in the parking lot or stadium with families gathering to eat and drink. If you could please let you parents know that this can not take place I would appreciate it.
If players/coaches would like to gather for pizza and individual drinks that is fine, but Recent COVID-19 positive cases at Penn Manor have been linked to social gatherings that resulted in several students needing to quarantine and we do not want to see that happen as a result of a gathering at Comet.

10/26

There will be no games after Monday, 10/26. Immediately following the Monday, October 26th home game , there will be a short ceremony for the JV and Varsity players and the coaches. This will take place around 5:45 pm in the soccer stadium.  Please join us in recognizing the hard work and accomplishments of the PMBS players and coaches during the 2020 Season. If you have any questions, please contact Bob Bookmiller, Booster Club President, at rbookmiller17551@gmail.com

Thank You

Thank you to everyone who donated items to Loft Community Partnership (a non-profit organization that strives to alleviate poverty within the Penn Manor School District). (see below)

“Thank you so much for all the amazing donations of toiletries. Please express our appreciation to the boys and their families for their generosity. Yours truly, Jill Montgomery-Director of Strategic Partnerships”

Immediately following the Friday, October 30th home game (v. Octorara), there will be a short ceremony for the JV and Varsity players and the coaches.
