BACK TO NORMAL
It was a typical couple of days at BLSA. Clinics ran each morning, followed by the waterfront and leagues to finish out the day. This afternoon we competed in soccer and softball with team Bobby G and team Harry Herbert pulling out the wins. The girls have been improving tremendously in each sport and can't wait to show you what they've learned.

The weather was on our side today as we spent the afternoon at Great Escape. It was a much needed day spent having fun, going on rides and eating junk food. We ended the day with the traditional Green and Gray campfire where the captains of each team spoke and then jumped in the lake. We go back to the grind tomorrow with our morning clinics and afternoon leagues.

it was Gray who got to ring the bell at the end of the day. BLSA's contribution was a huge success. We couldn't be more proud of our girls.

It was an action packed day of BLSA competition. We started the morning off with an exhibition doubles tennis match where the Green team defeated the Grays in a pro set. Later this morning, the girls played phenomenal volleyball. It was so nice to see that they took what they learned in our clinics and brought it onto the court. It was a close match-up but the grays pulled ahead for both the A and B squads, earning their team 1 point. The afternoon was filled with more activities. Gray took home the 7-9 win in our exhibition singles tennimatching, and our half field lacrosse game ended in a tie. Green and Gray is neck and neck for the BLSA girls. Our final event takes place tomorrow morning, a 7-inning softball game. Who will claim the victory?

Green and Gray Day 2
Even though the weather didn't hold up for us, we still had a busy day of competition. The green took on the gray in basketball at the arena this afternoon where the green team prevailed and took home the W for both the A and B squads. Later that afternoon the Gray team came back to win the free throw contest. We are hoping for better weather tomorrow so we can compete in volleyball and lacrosse. Stay tuned...

Who Will Ring The Bell??
It was a day filled with nail-biting victories and hard-fought wins. BLSA participated in the infamous 1-inning softball game in the morning and a soccer match this afternoon and observed many activities throughout the day. By far the most exciting event was the rope burning. Gray came from behind to claim victory. Three more days left. Who will ring the bell?

Oh Hey, We Want GREEN AND GRAY!
At 10:30pm, the fireworks began, and so did the start of Green and Gray! What a fun filled night. Campers put on their team colors, while our new campers were pulled to their respective teams by BLSA Green team captain, Gabby Ringvald, and Gray team captain, Sydney Frenchman. The girls will participate for the next 4 days in intense competition. We'll keep you updated!

Today we began to prepare for green and gray by developing our basic fundamental skills. Some campers are broadening their horizons by trying new sports, while other continue to gain more of a passion for the sports they love. The coaches took on the campers down at the waterfront in a game of beach newcomb, but the coaches didn't let up and took home the win. Our league play continued today with two intense games of soccer.

What a day! 21 girls woke up at 7:15am in the rain to get ready for the town's annual 5k race. We couldn't be more proud, as each girl worked hard to complete the race. Activities continued throughout the morning, offering our core sports along with fitness, tennis and arts and crafts. After lunch, some of us worked on restoring our muscles in a relaxing yoga class, followed by a trip down to the waterfront. The weather held out for league play, where Bobby G's team took on Uncle Merl in a nail-biting basketball game and Irwin Cohen's team challenged Harry Herbert to a volleyball match. League play is so exciting!

Our first official day at BLSA was a huge success! From intense basketball clinics to tennis with our BLC pro's, the girls didn't stop for a second. We learned about fueling our bodies properly at our Chalk Talk session and took our 8-lap swim test at the waterfront and played our first BLC one-inning softball game. We're exhausted, but can't wait to do it all over again tomorrow!

Today we welcomed 38 campers to Brant Lake Sports Academy. It was a beautiful, sunny day at camp. After all of the girls unpacked and settled into their bunks, we had our first group meeting followed by a competitive game of dodgeball. We finished up the day with a fantastic BBQ and evening activity filled with ice breakers and fun "get to know you" games. We are excited for tomorrow's activities to begin!
