A group of children went to a netball tournament to play a different number of games. The first game they luckily won 3-2, but the last few games they lost (even though they tried their best).
Another group of children went to cross country and they represented the school very well. Lacey came an amazing 9th out of 120 participants! The rest of our children came 26th, 53rd, 56th and 97th – well done everyone!
There are upcoming events of:
A football festival
Girl’s quick cricket
Further netball tournaments
If you want to be a great footballer,
here are two tips to improve your performance!
1. Learn to play with both feet
Most footballers play far better with one foot than the other, it's difficult to improve your touch with your stronger foot. Concentrating on your weaker foot is a probably one of the best ways to become a better footballer. Kick a ball against a wall using only your weaker foot (left foot or right). Have a game in training where everyone plays with their weaker foot. It doesn't take much effort and you will notice results within a few weeks.
2. Learn a new trick
When you see a new trick by a famous football player, watch it closely, over and over again before trying it. Online video is good for practicing this. Spend 10 minutes every day learning and trying the trick. Don't try it in a match until you can do it perfectly every time and don't use it to much or your opponents will figure it out.
