SPORTS TEAM FIXTURE DATES
We are welcoming all students to watch and support our school sports teams. Kindly note that not all fixtures will be home games; to see more information on team sports dates, read Timur Alimkhanov’s article in this month's edition. However, for the latest information I advise you to ask your PE Coaches and/or players in the teams.
This term we will be having:
U12 - U19 Football
U16 & U19 Basketball
U13 & U15 BSME Netball Tournaments
U19 Boys Water Polo
If you would like to come support the teams at their fixtures, please refer to the timetable below; however, be sure to note that not all games will be home games.
Some words of advice from Mr.Walsh to students who wish to join sports teams are:
“Firstly, always try your best in PE lessons and attend all open training sessions. This will help build confidence, skill and your understanding of the sport as a player. Next, you should keep in mind that the teams are not necessarily limited by age, all athletes should aim to be regular starters and play their best game throughout the whole season. Lastly, for those who are already in sports teams you should be looking to represent the school in performance pathways. Furthermore if you are Under 12-16, you should be aiming to be promoted into the age group above, this demonstrates exceptional skill, determination and dedication to your sport. However, most importantly, remember to have fun and enjoy whatever you do.”
