Sports Crew Training 2018-19

On Friday 6th October 2018, 8 of our year 5 and 6 students attended the Sports Crew training session held by WASPs at St John the Baptist secondary school. The session enabled the children, by giving them the required skills, to lead certain sporting activities in school at playtimes – with the primary target of getting as many students involved in sport as possible. The students took part in a number of team building activities throughout the morning, whilst also having the opportunity to run sessions for other children who attended the training from other schools.

The WASPs team provided a number of different activities, which the children had to take part in on their own accord, making sense of a specific activity card and having to put the instructions into practice. Once they had completed the task/s as a group, they then had the opportunity to run that specific session for another group of children, thus enhancing their leadership skills. They were also taught the 6 key factors that make a good Sports Crew leader, they are: honesty, teamwork, passion, respect, determination and self-belief (see badges below). In order to be an effective leader, you must attempt to demonstrate all of these qualities when helping others in sport. Overall the children had a magnificent time and did the school proud.
