Phantoms have a bright Phuture!

Phoenixville--The Phuture Phantom Grade School Classic is holding strong. Boys and girls in 4th and 5th grade at East Pikeland, Schuylkill and Barkley Elementary Schools will participate in this one day tournament designed to promote school spirit and sportsmanship. Each elementary school held try-outs to select twelve (12) boys and twelve (12) girls to represent their respective schools. Cheerleaders from each school also began practicing in support of their teams.

Administrators, teachers, and students have worked closely planning and developing this worthwhile event. Members of the Phoenixville Area High School basketball and cheerleading teams have volunteered to serve as coaches and mentors to the elementary school teams. The high school members also serve as scorekeepers, referees, and concession stand attendants. They are an integral part of the success of this tournament. Barkley, East Pikeland, and Schuylkill will compete against each other and begin to develop a relationship with our high school coaching staff. These “phuture phantoms” have been working diligently on their skills to compete in this competition.

The tournament will take place on Saturday, March 6, 2010 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Phoenixville Area High School. Here is the schedule of events:

8:30 a.m. Barkley vs. East Pikeland Girls
9:45 a.m. East Pikeland vs. Schuylkill Boys
11:00 a.m. Barkley vs. Schuylkill Girls
12:15 p.m. Middle School Hot Shot Competition
1:00 p.m. East Pikeland vs. Barkley Boys
2:15 p.m. Schuylkill vs. East Pikeland Girls
3:30 p.m. Schuylkill vs. Barkley Boys
4:30 p.m. Championship Play-Offs

The Phuture Phantom Grade School Classic started seven years ago with 4th and 5th grade boy’s basketball teams competing against one another. The following year the girls division for 4th and 5th grade girls was added to the tournament. Last year, the PAHS cheer leaders began coordinating teams from each of schools. And this year we’ve added a Hot Shot Competition for the Middle School students at halftime. The Phuture Phantom Committee would like to thank everyone who helped plan the event, and all that that continue to support our Phuture Phantoms.
