UKU U14 Ultimate Frisbee Indoor Competition

UKU U14 Ultimate Frisbee Indoor Competition

 

On Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th January the PE Department took nine students to the UKU U14 Ultimate Frisbee Indoor Championships in Wolverhampton. The team have been training for this competition since September and it was to be the first Frisbee competition that some of them had been to. Aaron Hazzard was the team captain for the weekend and Leo Ramsay was the co-captain. Bridgemary School’s team is called Southern Tekkers and we started in 8th seed. Our main objective for the weekend was to learn from the competition and try to maintain our seed.

We departed at 6am on Saturday morning to arrive in good time to warm up and compete from 10am onwards. On Saturday we played 5 games…

 

Very tough game to start with!

Fantastic second game!

On the first day of competition with many students experiencing their first Frisbee competition 3 wins out of 5 games was a huge accomplishment, it meant we went for a meal, hot chocolate and marshmallows with a smile of our faces!!

 

 

Sunday 28th January

A great start to Sunday, we are now seeded in 6th place!

Southern Tekkers 13 vs 2 Flux

We have maintained our 6th seed and will play 3rd seed next… points from Emily (4), Leo, Cameron (2), Katelyn, Niku and Dru (4). Assists from Aaron (6), Niku (2), Leo (2), Oliver, Cameron and Dru!

A very good team performance for our third game today!

It was a fantastic weekend with lots of great Frisbee being showcased. Students got to represent Bridgemary School in a National competition and some of them have caught the eye of the Great Britain coaches that were there! We have some very promising and talented students.

Trips like these provide students with treasured and valuable memories and whilst they demonstrate the school ethos (5R’s; Respect, Resilience, Relationships, Rewards, and Responsibility) they also have a lot of fun!!
