===============================================

Parents - please take the time to learn the unique history of Bellevue Wolverine Football Program at Fort Worden with this Newspaper article -

The Wolverine way: Summer camp bonds Bellevue players (Seattle Times) 2004

During this special week the players will build unique trust, set team goals, and strengthen friendships that will last a life time. This is a players camp first which is supported by coaches, parents and Bellevue High School Administration.

The roots of this camp can be traced to at least 1987, when then-coach Dwaine Hatch began bringing the Wolverines here for the first few days of August practice. The annual trip was discontinued after Hatch's departure in 1994, but reinstated before Goncharoff's second season in 2001.

The reasons for returning to Fort Worden — a former Army base and juvenile-diagnostic center turned state park — were many. Primary among them, however, was Goncharoff's aversion to team camps, where most of the coaching focuses on individual skills and is done by people who have no long-term stake in the programs they are teaching.

At Fort Worden, Bellevue players learn Bellevue techniques from Bellevue coaches.

Fort Worden Tradition

Players who have walked this field before your son include names like David DeCastro, Stephen Schilling, Eric Block, Myles Jack, Tim Hahel, Budda Baker and many more who sweated blue and gold each summer on the Port Townsend Memorial Field. These players have voiced that this camp changed their lives .This season, the camp and the activities leading up to the first game are incredibly important. The schedule is challenging and without an "all in" approach by players, coaches and parents we will not be playing at our best each week. Fort Worden begins this journey, as it has since the late 90's.  Fort Worden Football Camp is one of the most important activities our players participate in over the off-season but to pull it off, we need the parents and players committed to support the camp through their donations and time.

 

The price of camp includes food, lodging, practice field, bus transportation and helps cover the cost of coaches attending.  If the cost of the camp creates a financial hardship, you can make payment arrangements or apply for a partial or activity cost offset. Please contact our AD John Hill at hillj@bsd405.org for scholarship opportunity  / or payment arrangements.
