The weather inevitably reduces our opportunities in in the first half of Term but the pace hots up through March and April:
In January we took U11 and an U9 mixed teams to Inspire Ipswich to take part in Schools Games organised Dodgeball festivals. This was an excellent chance to widen participation and give more children a chance to compete.
February saw the annual Felixstowe schools Gala and a team of 23 competed wholeheartedly in all events which ranged from a 50M championship free-style through to a 1 width non-swimmers race! It was inspiring to see every child give their all and perform so well in finishing 5th.
In March we have a very busy Month:
Felixstowe schools will compete in Netball and Football in events postponed by the weather. The football will be held here at Caston and the Netball at Felixstowe Academy. We will be sending an U9 girls team to ITFC to take part in a football festival on 11th March with an U11 hockey team going to St Josephs on the 12th. Following that we have the Felixstowe schools events and then an U9 team going to Indoor Athletics for the first time (after a Causton only event) on the 24th March and Y4,5,6 teams competing in the IPSSA cross country (again following Year group trials) at Royal Hospital School on the 25th!
