The Bonsall Unified School District held sports clinics during the final three weeks of June.
Students entering sixth through 12th grades had opportunities to participate in co-ed volleyball, co-ed tennis, cross country and track and field, boys basketball, girls basketball, boys soccer, girls soccer, baseball, and softball clinics. Classes at Bonsall High School and Sullivan Middle School concluded June 8, and the clinics began June 13.
“They were great. We had just the right people and just enough people,” said Bonsall High School Athletic Director Andrea Breuninger.
With the exception of girls basketball, the clinics were taught by the Bonsall High School varsity coaches. “That allowed students to get to know the coaches,” Breuninger said.
The clinics ran from Monday through Thursday and were from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. “They were well attended except for a couple of girls ones,” Breuninger said.
The cross country and track and field clinic was a two-week clinic which drew seven students the first week and three the second week. Only four students attended the girls soccer clinic. The boys basketball clinic had nearly 20 students; 18 potential volleyball players attended the clinic for that sport, and 16 girls participated in the softball clinic. The girls basketball, tennis, and boys soccer clinics each had 10 students. Eight students were involved in the baseball clinic.
The track and field and cross country clinic was at the campus Bonsall High School and Sullivan Middle School share, the soccer clinics were held at Bonsall Elementary School, and the other sports had clinics at the Pala Sports Complex.
“The parents were very grateful because it was free of charge,” Breuninger said.
