Year 7 Girls Netball Tournament

On Wednesday 5th February Ark Pioneer Academy netball team attended Copthall School for a year 7 girls netball tournament which over 15 local schools attended. All schools were placed into pools with only the winner from each pool progressing to the semi-final.

This was the netball teams first exposure to competitive games. With the girls training only in their lunchtimes compared to other schools, some of which were much more experienced.

Ark played four schools in their pool, and while not all results went our way. The girls played fantastically, getting better and better with each game. Unfortunately, Ark did not progress to the semi final however staff from the tournament highlighted how impressed they were with the game play of Ark’s team and commented on how well they had progressed throughout the tournament regarding teamwork and game play.

Ark Pioneer’s netball team continue to train throughout this term ready for further games in March.
