     On Thursday April 9th in the Bear gym at Boyertown Area Senior High School, James Develin will speak to guests about his Super Bowl experience. The doors will open at 6:30 and he will speak promptly at 7:00pm. EVERY Optimist child is invited to attend and hear Jim’s incredible story. If you bring something to sign, he will be signing autographs also. This is a “once in coach Matt’s lifetime so far" event. I strongly urge you to bring your children to hear and meet a Super Bowl Champion. I just wish he could bring the real Lombardi trophy!

Boyertown has a Super Bowl Champion!

Boyertown Bears Youth Football Camp

"It's time again to start our summer camp season. It is very exciting for the Boyertown coaching staff to have young athletes at camp to meet our staff, see our facilities and spend their time with us improving their football skills.

                        As a football staff, we hope that the campers who leave our camp are proud of the fact that they gotten a close up view of Boyertown Bears Football. This will be the second year that our staff has the opportunity to teach and help practice different techniques that revolve around the game of football. We want to spend as much time as we can with our campers in teaching them the fundamentals and techniques essential to playing this great game. Our camp is about learning, meeting new friends, meeting coaches, playing games, and most importantly having fun with the game of football.

     Camp time is going to be upon us shortly, so make your plans to meet myself, our dedicated coaching staff, and current Bears players at this Boyertown Bears Youth Football Camp.

See you this summer!"
