Mission Statement

 The Bushkill Township Athletic Association accepts the responsibility of administering all recreational and athletic programs for the residents of the township and recognizes that the diversity in age and interest of the population requires an equally diverse offering of programs. The BTAA will provide essential leisure and recreational activities and sporting events, both competitive and non-competitive, team structured or individual, to satisfy the needs and expectations of our community. We will provide safe, well maintained and aesthetically pleasing facilities; we will employ all currently accepted means to insure that all persons directly involved with running these programs are qualified, first aid trained and background checked; and we will monitor the behavior of all participants, old or young, coach or player, parents and spectators, to assure that inappropriate behavior is dealt with and eliminated. We will constantly re-evaluate our programs in order to assure that they continue to be administered in a fair, wholesome and character building manner and we will make sure that the principal of true competition is not circumvented by the desire to “win at all costs”.
