This weekend, The Lower Providence Warriors will host the annual Fun Day. On July 12 from noon to 5 p.m., the football and cheer teams will sponsor the day at the Warriors’ field, Level Road in Collegeville.
Spokeswoman Janice Sbei said that the free day would be fun for all ages.
“Come join the original Warriors serving our community for over 30 years,” she said. “A day will be filled with fun, music, games, rides, food and more.”
Harry “Lightning” Yorgey, a local championship boxer, will be on hand at the event, as well. He will be appearing to sign autographs and take photos with his title belts.
Other fun inclusions will be carnival games, a moon bounce, slide, and obstacle course, as well as face-painting, fingerprinting for children and the Kona Ice Truck.
Hot dogs will be available for purchase, and free water ice is included for all. Pure Fun Entertainment will provide all inflatables.
“The new executive board, as well as the football and cheer coaches, will be on hand to answer any questions you may have,” said Sbei. “Warrior gear will be available at ridiculous prices, and activities are planned throughout the day.”
Sbei said that the teams are still open for registration.
“Lower Providence Warriors offer the best youth football and cheer program in the area,” she said. “We play competitive teams and offer outstanding instruction. Our prices beat all other youth football teams in the area, hands down.”
The teams have been successful in past years, naming several titles along the way.
“We have captured the KSL Championships across our weight levels every year since 2008, consecutively,” said Sbei.
In addition to the Fun Day on July 12, the league will also host its inaugural Lower Providence Warrior Cheerleaders Camp on Saturday, July 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost of the clinic is only $35, which includes a t-shirt.
Cheer clinic attendees are asked to bring a water bottle and bagged lunch. Sbei said the snack bar will be open and a one-hour lunch break will be held.
During the camp, which is also slated to be hosted at the Warrior Field, Level Road, all-star and college cheerleaders will “instruct participants on proper technique for cheer motions, dance and jumps,” said Sbei.
“Special attention will be given to safe stunting and tumbling,” she said. “Team-building exercises will build self-confidence and the importance of good sportsmanship.”
Awards will be given for spirit, jumps, stunt group and dance cheerleaders. For more information on the camp itself, contact Sbei, cheer director, at LPWCheerCoach@gmail.com.
