#Reframecompetition was the name of the game at the Ribble Valley Basketball competition as we tried to do something a little different.
The event was split into 4 sections with equal points for all four.
Section one was a shooting station, section two a dribbling station, section three an interception event and section four competitive games.
The overall results were as follows:
1 – Gisburn Blue
2 – Gisburn red and Oakhill Blue
3 – St Marys Langho Red and St Leonards Blue
The Hyndburn KS1 Kurling is such an exciting event as this could be the first competition experience for the KS1 students representing their schools at one of our events. 19 teams attended the event at Accrington Academy. Each team consists of 4 students, having all the little children very excited created a great atmosphere.
The teams were split up into 4 groups and the top 2 teams in each group qualified for the quarter finals then semi-finals. These qualifying teams were Peel Park, St Annes & St Josephs, St Marys Oswaldtwistle & Scared Heart. The games showed some excellent tactical play as they knocked each other of the targets. In the tense final we had St Annes & St Joseph’s V Peel Park & playing for 3rd and 4th place was St Marys V Sacred Heart.
The overall finishing positions with Peel Park taking gold were
1st Peel Park
2nd St Annes & St Josephs
3rd St Marys Oswaldtwistle
4th Sacred Heart
Thank you to the Sports Leaders from Accrington Academy for assisting with the delivery of the event.
This year’s Inclusive event followed a new very exciting format. 48 children from 15 Hyndburn & Ribble Valley Primary schools came along to take part in our specialist inclusive event held at Oakhill College. Sports leaders from Oakhill did a fantastic job at assisting with the delivery of the event to help this run smoothly. Each child received their own Passport document at the beginning of the event, as they travelled around the 6 or 7 stations each focusing on a different activity, they received a stamp or sticker for every country/station they visited. Below shows the activities the children took part in.
France – Archery
Canada – Kurling
UK – Boccia
Spain – Fencing
Australia – Pound
USA – Seated Volleyball
Ukraine – Throwing Circus
The children had so much fun experiencing new sports and activities, thank you to Oakhill for providing the excellent sports leaders & the use of their facilities.
This year the influx of entries for the Years 3/4 Football competition meant we had to split the event into 2 separate competitions. The first event had 8 teams represent their schools. We split the teams into 2 groups which all competed for the top 2 places in their group. Playing 12-minute games the teams thoroughly enjoyed scoring lots of goals and the teams qualifying through to the Semi-finals were St Peter & Pauls V St Marys Clayton and St Marys Oswaldtwistle V Green Haworth. Gaining a victory and making it through to the semi finals both showing an excellent standard of play was St Peter & Pauls V St Marys Oswaldtwistle resulting in a very high standard final match!
The top 3 finishing positions were
1st St Peter & St Pauls
2nd St Marys Oswaldtwistle
3rd – St Marys Clayton
The second of the Hyndburn Year 3& 4 events had the best of the weather as the rain stopped for a while. Eleven teams were competing across two groups and the standard of play was a high as ever.
The winners of group one was St Andrews who played the runners up in group two who were Peel Park A. Runners up in group one was Mount Pleasant A who played winners of two St Bartholomew’s. St Andrews won their semi-final outright whilst the second semi-final went to the dreaded penalties which Mount Pleasant won 3 – 1.
The third and fourth place play off saw Peel Park take 3rd place. The final was an extremely close affair between Mount Pleasant A and St Andrews. St Andrews had beaten Mount Pleasant in the group stages but the final saw Mount Pleasant score an early goal to take the gold medals.
Well Done to both the winning teams and thank you to the Hyndburn Academy Sports Leaders & Young Referees that assisted with refereeing the games!
