The Springwell Community College sports leaders, our match officials, explained the decisions to ensure the young players understood and developed. With great refereeing from all leaders, it was obvious how encouraging they were towards the players throughout. One of the leaders, Ryan, said; “I’m really blown away with how good they are considering how young they all are. It’s nice how friendly they are towards the other team as well as the referee.”

Gold for Brockwell Badgers

It has been an exciting but tough journey during our qualifiers nonetheless we were delighted to welcome seven teams in the year 3 and 4 Mini Tennis Final held at Chesterfield Lawn Tennis Club.

Mini Tennis is fun, great for fitness and for developing hand eye co-ordination. It can be played by all ages and abilities and this is a mixed boys and girls competition. Each individual boy will take it in turns to play their opposition whilst the girls play their double game. From there, they will alternate. Each point is recorded when there is an unsuccessful second serve, the ball is out of bounds or there is a double bounce. The player with the most points gained will win the game.

On the courts, we welcomed Brockwell Badgers, Beavers and Bears, Hollingwood, William Rhodes and Walton Holymoorside Aces and Whales. A strong competition that saw many close matches.

One teacher, from William Rhodes Primary School, said; “These kids absolutely love it today. They have learnt so many new skills and I think it is great that they get a chance to play against different schools who are all at different levels. There are some incredibly talented young people.”

The Chesterfield College leaders were quick to explain the rules to ensure the young players understood. Doubling up on each court, they recorded the scores and encouraged the players throughout. One of the Sports Leaders, Imogen, of Chesterfield College, said; “I’m really blown away with how good they are considering how young they all are. They are so polite and encouraging towards each other also, which is a nice thing to see.”

One pupil from Walton Holymoorside, said; “I’ve really enjoyed myself today. I tried my best and managed to win a few games, but there were some really good players which I lost to.”

After a fantastic final with incredible spirit shown throughout the day, Brockwell Badgers took the Gold for the Year 3&4 Mini Tennis Competition and will now represent Chesterfield in the Derbyshire School Games event on 11th July. We wish them all the best.

Thank you to the Chesterfield Tennis Club for a fantastic venue and the help and support of the Chesterfield College leaders.

Young athletes shine at Quadkids

Nearly 300 pupils from across Chesterfield primary and secondary school took part in this year’s Quadkids event held at Mount St Marys College.

Quadkids is a new and exciting athletics concept designed to give more children the opportunity to participate in and enjoy the core disciplines of athletics. It is specifically designed to be inclusive, competitive, quick and fun. Primarily a team based quadrathlon competition where individual performances are scored using a points table and the winners are the team with the highest cumulative points score. Quadkids allows all athletes to take part in a sprint, distance run, standing long jump and vortex howler throw.

The day kicked off with our first event, 50m sprint for the Year 1 & 2. Brampton Primary school were eager to get started, and after a practice run, it were the girls to begin the race. After a great run, Evie K took the first place followed closely by Grace. The boys were up and it was Scott who stormed ahead to win the race.

Meanwhile on the grass, the year 3 & 4 were preparing for the standing long jump. There were some fantastic jumps with excellent technique but it was Connor from Brampton Stings won the boys while Gracie T from Old Hall yellow took first place for the girls.

The year 5 & 6 pupils were beginning their first event on the field with the Vortex Howler Throw. Sam from Old Hall Yellow took first place with a whopping 32 metres whilst Lottie from Hasland Harriers won in the girls’ category.

On the track, the year 3/4 pupils were taking their mark for the 50m Sprint race. Grace D from Old Hall Blue stormed ahead to take first place with Nathaniel from Brockwell Badgers winning the boys race adding, “That was so much fun. I’m so glad I won but there were some really good runners.”

Back to the track event and next up was the 75m sprint race for the year 5 & 6. After some very close competition, it was down to video finishes to determine some of the races! Brampton Bees runner Ethan finished with the quickest time with Missy from Hasland Harriers winning in the girl’s race.

On the field, the year 1 & 2 were giving their all in the standing long jump with the year 3 & 4 competing in the Howler throw. First place winner Poppy from Old Hall Yellow described, “I didn’t think I was going to do THAT well in the throwing one but I just gave it my all and threw it as hard as I could, and it went so far.”

After a quick break we moved onto the distance running events, with the year 1 & 2 preparing for their 300m race. It was a tough run but Evie K and Scott both from Brampton Primary School took the first place.

It was a 400m race for the year 3 & 4 and a close one at that with Sam from Brockwell Badgers taking the win for the boy’s race. After an impressive set of races from the girls, both Faye and Scarlett from Brampton finished with the same time to take joint first place for the girls.

Our final race was the year 5 & 6 600m and the first set of girls were up. A fantastic run from Lucy of Brockwell Badgers who took first place, showing great sportsmanship by congratulating and shaking each competitor’s hands.

Mark Tournier, Partnership Development Manager of Chesterfield School Sport Partnership, announced, “It was a thoroughly enjoyable day at an inspirational venue, providing the opportunity for young people to experience four different athletic events and challenge their own personal best.”

We would like to say a big thank you for the support we received from the sports leaders and Chesterfield College leaders, as well as Mount St Marys College for hosting this event.

Some participants will be invited to represent Chesterfield and compete in the North Derbyshire Quadkids District Finals held in July.

Volunteer Week: Young Official India Hollingworth

As part of National Volunteers’ Week, from the 1st to the 7th June, we will be celebrating the fantastic work of our volunteers within the Athletics and Running community whose dedication, commitment and enthusiasm make the sport happen!

On each day throughout the week, we will be recognising an everyday hero who has made a huge impact in Athletics/ Running within their local area, club, region or community group.

It’s day one and today we will be celebrating the great work of India Hollingworth, a young official whose passion and dedication has secured her place as starter’s assistant on the track during the London 2017 IAAF World Championships and call-room assistant at the World Para Athletics.

India Hollingworth – Young Official

“Three words that sum up officiating for me are rewarding, fulfilling & enjoyable” 

India was no longer able to continue competing as an athlete but really wanted to stay involved in the sport and thought officiating would be a good way to do this, “The School Sports Partnership in my area were hosting a Level 1 course and I was encouraged to attend and give it a go. I was previously an athlete and when I stopped competing I was already helping out at events so it made sense to do the qualification” This is now India’s 5th year as a qualified official.

Currently in her first year at University, with a job as well as coaching and doing various other voluntary work, India still finds time to attend at least one competition a month, “People appreciate that you are willing to give the time to officiate and you just do what you can to fit in with your other commitments. I really enjoy turning up at competitions and seeing young athletes happy and enthusiastic – athletes start to recognise you and say hello. I also enjoy meeting and socialising with other officials.”

India’s advice for any young people who may feel slightly apprehensive about officiating is to not be afraid to attend meetings and ask questions. “Everyone is really friendly and there to support you and understands that you are a young official” India has gained invaluable skills which are transferable and can be used outside of officiating, including communication skills teamwork and keeping calm in pressurised situations.

At aged just 19 India is set to be a starter’s assistant on the track during the London 2017 IAAF World Championships and, prior to this, a call-room assistant at the World Para Athletics Championships.

Congratulations and good luck India!

Smiles all around for successful infant festivals

15 schools across Chesterfield had the chance to experience a fun day of Sportshall athletics themed activities at the 2017 Infant Agility Festivals. Ran by the Chesterfield School Sport Partnership, Key Stage 1 pupils enjoyed a variety of activities. Spread across 12 stations, the activities were aimed at developing core stability, balance, agility, strength, speed and coordination.

Sarah Evans, Leadership and Physical Activity Officer at the SSP said, “We were delighted to welcome nearly 900 infants to take part in the KS1 Infant Agility festivals. It was great seeing so many young people taking part in the events, not only being active but they were able to interact with other young people from different schools.”

The ‘Striker’ activity proved to be one of the favourite stations, encouraging participants to focus on their accuracy and co-ordination. Albie, of Mary Swanwick, expressed, “The Striker was the best because I got to play two of my favourite games, football and bowling.”

Another popular station, ‘Bowler’, was a target challenge activity, which helps to develop rhythm, focus, accuracy and hand-eye coordination, skills that will transfer into a wide variety of games, challenges and activities. Katie from Temple Normanton said, “The one where you roll the ball to get the skittles down was my favourite because I like knocking them all over and I was really good at it.”

Mrs Plowright of Speedwell Infant School explained how “fantastic it has been for the children. We have seen such an improvement in a short amount of time. The leaders were fantastic with helping them to develop their skills.”

Other stations worked closely on Sportshall Athletics style activities, including a Balance station, Speed Bounce, Jumper, Stepper, Launcher and Runner. The Pitcher station was an excited target based activity that entailed the participant to aim the beanbag into the right coloured section on the mat. Working on accuracy, concentration and hand-eye co-ordination, one pupil from Holmehall Primary School described the activity as “tough, but I’m glad I did it because I didn’t know I could throw that well.”

Miss Hill, of Hady Primary School said, “There’s a good variety of activities. The leaders worked well at getting the children engaged. They were all out of breath which is what you want at events like this.”

Miss Hardy of Cutthorpe Primary School, “I was very nervous about splitting our school up but the leaders and rotations made it a very easy transition and the children loved every minute of it.”

The Key Stage 1 Infant Agility Festivals proved to be a popular event, running over six different days. We would like to give a special thanks to our numerous leaders of Springwell School, Netherthorpe School and Chesterfield College who made the events a smooth and enjoyable experience.

Mrs Carter and Mrs Gale from Temple Normanton described the festival as “engaging and challenging. It was nice to see so many pupils interacting well with each other from different schools. Something our children do not get to do very often. It is nice to have that opportunity.”

Over 700 Young Stars WOW crowd at the Primary Dance Festival

700 Infants and Primary School children from across Chesterfield wowed capacity crowds at the Winding Wheel Theatre over our two-day 2017 Primary Dance Festival.

100s of spectators were treat to 35 performances from 24 schools across the four sessions, including special guest performances from two secondary schools and a community dance company.  Due to the popularity of the event, we held our ninth festival over two days with the inspired theme of Music through the Ages.

After an opening performance from special guests, Netherthorpe School, Old Hall Junior took to the stage to perform ‘Street Cool’. Kitted out in street style clothing, the young dancers were excellent and it was a great way to start this year’s festival.

The second performance kick-started the Music through the Ages atmosphere with Spire Infant performing ‘Decades of Dance’. I think it was safe to say the audience were well and truly in the mood!

The remainder of the session were full of excellent dances from the likes of Highfield Hall Primary, who danced ‘ABCs Through Time’, Norbriggs Primary who bought some 21st Century music with ‘Dance Today’ and Spire Junior, who included some great work with bells and hoops as part of their performance ‘Brave’.

We had some lovely performances throughout the morning, including Hasland Junior School who took us back through time with their performance ‘Dancing through Time’.

The morning session was brought to a close by Hollingwood Primary’s second performance, ‘Hand Jive Hollingwood Style’. Emelia, a pupil at Hollingwood, exclaimed how excited she was: “We’ve been practicing for ages ready for today! Now it’s finally here it doesn’t feel real!”

After a quick changeover, it was time for the afternoon performances, this time opened by local dance group Wallace Dance Academy, who performed a lyrical acrobatic routine. Poolsbrook Primary were first to perform their routine ‘Thriller’. An outstanding performance involved an entire class kitted out in their scariest outfit.

Staveley Junior were next to perform their well-coordinated routine to ‘Jailhouse Rock’. After finishing the dance, the pupils reported they: “absolutely loved it….wish we could do it again!”

After another guest performance from Outwood Academy Newbold, Cavendish Junior School also embraced the theme with their epic battle dance to ‘Jackson through the Ages’. Brockwell Junior kept the audience mesmerised on their beautiful performance of ‘Stay’. Day one came to a close with a final guest performance from Netherthorpe School.

Mrs Stevenson, a teacher at Netherthorpe School said: “It’s incredible to see so much amazing talent in one space. Having an event such as this really does give new opportunities to young people.”

The morning of day 2, with 11 performances from seven schools. Hady, Brampton and Westfield Infant all performed two dances to songs such as Jackson 5, Bugsy Malone and Grease.

Dunston Primary performed a street dance which wowed the capacity crowd with their version of ‘Beat It’. Newbold C of E and Temple Normanton both performed a ‘Rock n Roll’ Style routine which definitely got the crowd up on their feet.

Thea, the dance teacher at Temple Normanton said: “I can’t believe how much fun it has been watching these dancers perform on stage. They just look like they love being on there.

Cutthorpe Primary bought two groups to take part in the primary dance festival. Their all-boy group, who had recently performed earlier in the morning, cheered on for their all-girl group who performed a beautiful Charleston to close the morning showcase.

The final session was a fitting finale as eight more performances took to the Winding Wheel stage.

Mr Macnamara, a teacher at Walton Holymoorside said: “Thanks for organising the festival today, the kids had a great time performing and watching the other schools. We have also had some great feedback from parents.”

The event was a great success and the dancers showed great courage performing on stage, many of whom for the first time.

Mark Tournier, Partnership Development Manager at the Chesterfield School Sport Partnership, said: “The primary dance platform provides an opportunity for every young person to perform and showcase their personal best. It takes a huge amount of courage and determination to take the steps onto the stage and perform, and to see the self-confidence, pride and smiles as they leave the stage is why we do it. “Our dance festival is an annual event and to see it grow over the past few years to run over two days with four performances is testament to the support of the primary schools across Chesterfield and to the hard work of teachers and parents.”

Congratulations to all the schools who performed, everyone was excellent and fully embraced the theme ‘Music through the Ages’. We hope to see you all again next year, whether that be at the Primary or Secondary Dance Festivals.

Also a big thank you to the Leaders from Netherthope School, Outwood Academy Newbold and Chesterfield College for their help throughout the festival.

Brockwell to represent after Sportshall Athletics Final

Brockwell Junior School were crowned champions for the second year running, after an incredible team performance. The atmosphere was incredible and each team showed great sportsmanship towards every team.

Eight schools from around Chesterfield qualified for the Y5&6 Sportshall Athletics Final, taking place at Queen’s Park Sports Centre.

The first event to take place was the obstacle relay, the determination on every single child’s face was amazing to see. Brockwell Juniors built up an early lead from the first events but Hasland Juniors were hot on their heels. Only 12 points separated 3rd and 6th place.

Throughout the event, all the leaders looked very closely at each team to see who showed the Spirit of the Games values. It was a tough decision but all the leaders decided to give the Spirit of the Games Award to Hasland Juniors for showing great respect towards all who took part, they not only cheered for their team in each event but also cheered for every other school as well.

Denise, a parent from Brockwell, said: “I really enjoyed watching such a wide range of activities in such a short amount of time and seeing all the kids loving it, I was really impressed with how smoothly it ran and was even more impressed with how encouraging all the schools were to each other”.

Leanne, a leader from Chesterfield School Sport Partnership, said: “Throughout the day I saw some great techniques being shown, this amazed me by how much the schools had prepared for this event”.

The event would not have been possible without the amazing help shown by staff, parents and carers, we would like to give a massive thank you to all who contributed and helped out.

Well done to all the schools that competed in our Sportshall Athletics Final and a massive congratulations to Brockwell who goes onto represent Chesterfield at the Derbyshire Schools’ County Finals on Tuesday, 28th March.
