Parallel Youth Games

On the 23rd May, 40 students from Key Stage 3 competed in the annual Parallel Youth Games held at The K2 Leisure Centre in Crawley.  It was a fantastic event with students from all over Sussex competing in varied sporting activities from football to dance, swimming to boccia, golf to tennis. 

The Results:

BOCCIA: Great teamwork and strategic thinking – Our Boccia team narrowly missed out on a medal.

NEW AGE KURLING: Our New Age Kurlers gained in confidence as the tournament progressed, easily most improved team there!

TENNIS: Soooo close to making the top three; narrowly missing out, but amazing talent and skill shown throughout… 

DANCE: A non-competitive celebratory dance to the song ‘This is Me!’. Fantastic performance – not a dry eye in the house!

GOLF: Our golfer’s epitomised the word ‘determination’ as they dug deep to be crowned BRONZE MEDAL WINNERS!

SWIMMING: Fantastic effort by each and everyone of our swimmers. Individual swimming awards went to Sammy Elliott for winning 2 silvers medals and to Marlon Osborn for his 2 bronzes.

STREET SOCCER: In preparation for the World Cup this Summer, our Street Soccer players really put us through it!  It was the first time they have played this type of football, and after taking a match to acclimatise to the differences, our boys put on a glittering display all the way to the final!  In a closely fought contest against opposition who had beaten them 3-0 in their opening game, our footballers showed they are quick learners by more than holding their own.  At full time it was level and with extra time not finding a winner, it went to the dreaded penalty shootout where we eventually lost 2-0.  However, we had won a Silver Medal and that is something to be very proud of!

CRICKET: Bronze Medalists! They demonstrated great batting and fielding skills during the tournament and grew in confidence as the competition progressed. However, it was the fantastic teamwork and positive encouragement for each other is what won our cricketers their bronze medal!

SOOOO… The day was a massive success and the students a real credit to the school.  Whether the students won or lost, they always displayed great sportsmanship throughout; supporting not only their teammates, but also those from the other schools.  The sense of togetherness and team spirit is always something we strive to achieve, but I don’t think it has been as clearly evident as it was during The Parallel Youth Games.  We are so proud of each and everyone who competed;

We are proud to be WOODLANDS MEED!
