Chesterfield Panthers kick-starts 2018 with Warrior Camp

The next wave of England Rugby’s Inner Warrior campaign has launched today, and Chesterfield Panthers Rugby Club is delighted to announce a Warrior Camp on 14th January.

The 2018 campaign theme is ‘New Year, New You’, encouraging women to kick start their fitness routine for the new year and challenge themselves to take up a new sport. The 2018 Warrior Camps kick off on January 12th and run until January 28th with 185 rugby taster sessions taking place at clubs across the country.

Ambassador for the campaign, England international Katy Daley-Mclean commented, “It can be hard to stay motivated to get fit during winter. Team sports, such as rugby, provide support and encouragement, making fitness fun and social. The Warrior Camps give women the opportunity to try rugby, often for the first time, and it’s fantastic to see so many feeling inspired to take up rugby.”

Since its initial launch, over 10,500 women have attended Warrior Camps nationwide; and of those women, 3,500 had never picked up a rugby ball before. The number of camps available to women has continued to grow to meet demand and the influx of players saw 41 new female contact rugby club teams established in 2017.

Steve Grainger, RFU Rugby Development Director, said: “Female participation in rugby has seen unparalleled levels of growth in recent years, with a massive 215% increase since 2013. It’s now one of the fastest growing team sports for women in England.”

“As part of the 2017-21 funding agreement with Sport England and our new Women and Girls’ Action Plan, the RFU is looking to significantly expand the number of women and girls participating in grassroots rugby across England, and the Warrior Camps are instrumental in supporting this growth.”

The Inner Warrior campaign aims to encourage more women and girls to play contact rugby, teaching participant’s key introductory skills and drills for rugby within a non-committal, social and fun environment.

Chesterfield School Sport Partnership - Chesterfield Dance Platform 2017

Chesterfield Celebrates Dance

The packed out Winding Wheel audience were blown away by 17 amazing performances on Tuesday 28th November.

It was the 12th staging of the platform and a real opportunity to showcase and celebrate the talent and creativity or the young dancers. UDance is a programme run by One Dance England which seeks to increase the number of youth dance performances and support those who organise them.

Over 120 young people took part in the dance platform from 6 secondary school and a community Dance organisation, in the magnificent Winding Wheel Theatre in Chesterfield.

The dance festival was opened by Netherthorpe School with their KS3 Pom Team performance. Their excellent and energetic performance was a great opening for the event. Outstanding performances from Brookfield Community School, Outwood Academy Newbold, Springwell Community College and St Mary’s Catholic High School filled the first half of the event with excitement and really showed their dedication and hard work into these routines.

After a short break, it was local company Crystal Cheer and Dance to open up the second half of the evening with a mash up of different street dance pieces.

An excellent display of talent from all the secondary schools during the second half, including a beautiful duet performance from St Marys Catholic High School.

A final solo performance from Netherthorpe School ‘Goodbyes’ drew the evening to a close. A wonderful contemporary piece beautifully demonstrated by a GCSE student drew a large applause from the audience. All the performers returned to the stage for the grand finale, taking the much deserved applause from the crowd.

Clare Limb, Head of Dance Development and Learning for Derbyshire Youth Dance Company said: “Dance is a cultural entitlement for all young people. These young people are the future of dance in and out of school, young choreographers in their own right. I encourage them to run their own clubs, make their own dancers and find ways of performing them.”

Mayor of Chesterfield, Councillor Maureen Davenport described how proud she was adding, “I’m particularly pleased to see so many schools are taking part, almost every secondary school in the borough has been involved and it’s brilliant.”

Well done to everyone that took part and made the event such a success.

We would love to hear your thoughts on the event, so please join in the conversation online via our social media channels

‘Winter is Coming’ as over 450 take part in Cross Country

St Mary’s retain Champion School Trophy

Over 450 runners from eight secondary schools took to the challenging cross country course at Mount St. Mary’s College on Thursday 30th November for the 2017 Chesterfield Schools Secondary Cross Country event supported by the Chesterfield School Sport Partnership.

There were eight races, each split by year group and gender, making for some close contests towards the finish line. Despite Brookfield regularly finishing in the top three, St Mary’s Catholic High School dominated finishing in the top three for every age group in the team event and retained the Cross Country Champion School trophy.

Conditions on the day were extremely cold, with one of the races having to deal with a snow shower! The course at Mount St Mary’s was in fantastic shape, challenging and testing the runners throughout the day.

Mr Schofield, Head of Physical Education at Netherthorpe School and Race Starter said: “We always look forward to the Cross Country event. It has been a brilliant day with some outstanding performances in challenging cold conditions. The stand out performance has to be from Elsbeth Grant, completing the 3km course in under 11minutes!”.

All the runners had a great day and competed in excellent spirit. The top runners in each age group will now be invited to represent Chesterfield and compete in the County Schools’ Cross Country in January 2018.

Active Chesterfield - Sports Awards 2017

Chesterfield Celebrates Sporting Success

On Thursday 28th September, over 200 local athletes, mentors and school pupils came to the Winding Wheel for the much anticipated 2017 Active Chesterfield Sports Awards. The Chesterfield School Sport Partnership combined community sports awards with those for schools and school teams that have excelled over the past year.

Mark Tournier, Partnership Development Manager at the Chesterfield School Sport Partnership, said: “The Active Chesterfield Awards provided an exciting platform to recognise and celebrate local sporting success and honour the dedication of sports leaders and volunteers. The Awards to recognise the work that schools play in developing opportunities to shine through Sport and Leadership and to celebrate the success of individuals and teams across Chesterfield. Everyone involved in school and community sport in Chesterfield deserves praise and thanks. The Winding Wheel provided the ideal setting to give the worthy winners and highly commended nominees to receive their awards.”

22 awards were presented to athletes, coaches and volunteers from across the community. In the school sport awards, the major winners included Brockwell Junior School, Springwell Community College and St Marys Catholic High School who each picked up a team achievement award. The IAAF World Youth Championship athlete Alicia Barrett was crowned Sportsperson of the Year respectively dominating the community awards.

Brockwell Junior School were delighted to have received not one but four awards at the event. Jo Lenthall, PE Coordinator, said: “A fantastic event that truly recognises and celebrates all that is great in sport in Chesterfield. It was brilliant to hear so many inspirational stories of young people working hard to be the best they can be and achieve their personal goals. I am so very proud of the Young Leaders of Brockwell Junior and delighted that their hard work in Media and providing us all with an active environment has been recognised and rewarded. Many thanks to the Chesterfield School Sport Partnership for providing us with this platform to showcase our achievements.”

There was also an opportunity to recognise the achievements of school staff with Rachel Bates of Old Hall Junior School receiving the Primary School Staff of the Year, along with Katherine Hollingworth of Outwood Academy Newbold who received the Secondary School Staff of the Year Award.

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!

Indoor Rowing Champs take gold for a third year

Springwell Community College made it three in a row retaining the North Derbyshire Key Stage 3 & 4 Indoor Rowing champions crown, following some consistent performances over the competition. In the Indoor Rowing plus event, a well-deserved victory to Shirebrook ahead of Ashgate Croft.

We teamed up with Bolsover and North East Derbyshire School Sport Partnerships to run our Indoor Rowing and Indoor Rowing Plus competitions at Queen’s Park Sports Centre in Chesterfield. The event was supported by British Rowing and the excellent Sports Leaders from Chesterfield College.

The action-packed event kicked off with the Indoor Rowing Plus Team Relay event, an event targeting students with additional needs, from across the three areas competed. A fantastic effort by all teams, however, on the day it was Shirebrook who came out on top followed very closely by Ashgate Croft. Ashgate Croft were crowned Chesterfield champions and will go on to the county final.

In the first of the key stage 3 team races, all four team members, in both the boys and girls, rowed for 30 second bursts with 16 changeovers. A fast paced relay challenge with perfectly timed changeovers and great team order of the day. Springwell won both, the Boys and Girls relay events and were well placed in the team event before the final combined mixed relay challenge.

The key stage 4 events produced a very close contest in the boys and girls 30 sec relay challenge. Although Springwell finished top of Chesterfield, Tupton Hall were ahead after finishing first after the girl’s relay.

The Individual Girls Plus race was next with St Marys taking the Gold and Silver, with Eckington following closely to take the Bronze. Our final Plus race was for the Boys event, and with 2 heats, it was always going to be a close race. However, it was Shirebrook who took the Gold medal with Tupton Hall taking Silver and Ashgate Croft taking Bronze. A fantastic demonstration of determination and spirit as floods of encouragement came from spectators.

Down to the final relay challenges for the team event. The mixed relay, with every team member having to put it on the line in a testing 90 second row, a real test for everyone involved. Springwell got off to a perfect start in both the key stage 3 and 4 races and set the pace throughout the relay races. The teams worked hard, with incredible focus and determination, executing well practised changeovers. In the end, Springwell held off a strong performance from Dronfield to win the mixed relays.

Before the results were announced, we moved into the final individual races. Individual rivalries between the schools from Chesterfield, Bolsover and North East Derbyshire began to emerge as we moved onto Individual races, with rowers and spectators supporting and racing in the best spirit.

Key Stage 3 Boys –

1ST – Isaac- St Marys

2nd – Corran – Netherthorpe
