Busy summer for Colonial Beach Drifter Athletes

 

Kids in Colonial Beach had plenty to keep them busy all summer. Between camps, open gyms, teams summer workout, and the weight room access to the public, there was hardly any down time for Colonial Beach High School student-athletes.

Camps

Drifter varsity baseball head coach Steve Swope started it off with his successful 18th annual baseball camp for boys and girls, ages five and up. The camp was featured fundamentals, contests, games, and camp attraction “the slip-n-slide station.”

Drifter varsity boys’ head basketball coach Jonathan Parker followed with his fun camp for boys and girls, ages five and up. They were treated to fundamentals, contests, and games in the beautiful air-conditioned Drifterdome.

New Drifter varsity head volleyball coach Chase Davidson and staff provided a fun-filled camp for boys and girls, ages five and up. Kids were learned fundamentals, participated in contests, played games, got pictures with Petey the Drifter mascot, made their own tie-died camp T-shirts, and a visited outside the air-conditioned Drifterdome to splash around on the slip-n-slide.

Former Drifter head cheerleader coach Jen Grigsby will return to host another cheer camp this summer for kids, ages five and up. The camp will run from 9 a.m. to 12 noon daily from August 13-17 in the spacious Drifterdome.  For more information contact coach Swope at (804) 224-7166 (CBHS).

Summer workouts

Coach Parker kept the gym open for six weeks for all athletes to come in and work on their basketball skills.

Coach Davidson encouraged all of his players and kids to come by and have fun playing volleyball a couple days a week during the summer.

Coach Swope provided baseball fun as most current players, kids, and alumni hooked up for six weeks of inter-squad games played at Monroe Park throughout the summer.

Football head coach Scott Foster and staff kept the weight-room open all summer long for kids to build strength and conditioning. The football staff also held team workouts throughout the summer.

Softball head coach Scott Foster organized and coordinated a dozen of his Lady Drifters to attend softball camp at the University of Mary Washington in July.

Drifter varsity girls’ basketball coach Keith Dickerson ran some team workouts, and took his players to the University or Richmond basketball camp on August 10.

Drifter athletic director Steve Swope, Bill Thomas, and Kelling Hardin delivered the 9th annual CBHS golf tournament again this summer. The successful golfer’s delight was played at Hobb’s Hole in Tappahannock.
