Many congratulations to the 37 teams who took part in the Hunts School Sports Partnership Year 5 & 6 Tag Rugby Tournaments this week. Around 430 pupils from ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ teams developed their match play skills over 94 matches , for many it was their first time of playing at a community club. The Huntingdon Rugby Club were excellent hosts along and with some fine weather, despite the forecast, helped to ensure that a great time was had by all.
This event offered children an opportunity to play in a fun environment, with time to practice and develop their skills such as decision making the children’s confidence grew throughout the tournament.
An England Rugby Coach trained Sports Leaders to support the event and on the day community club coaches also supported match play. Overall the standard of play was excellent and players new to game progressed significantly.
Pupil Quotes: “It was fantastic and fun to meet the other teams” “It was really fun – even though we only won 1 match – I enjoyed it”
Teacher Quotes: “It was great to see how much our team improved over the afternoon, receiving lots of advice and help” “An excellent event, well organised with an enthusiastic atmosphere”
