Sportshall started on Tuesday 2nd September at Kings School Romsey Road. We still need more athletes in the under 11 boys and girls and under 13 girls and especially under 13 boys. Sportshall encompasses running throwing jumping and agility aspects of athletics and is an excellent opportunity to obtain new skills. We compete in the Hampshire Sportshall league with the chance, if selected to represent Hampshire at regional and possibly national level. If you think you would like to take part at Sportshall please contact myself Steve Torrance Jane Gandee, Pete Spelman or through your coach.
Sportshall training starts again on 2nd September at Kings School and Winchester needs more young athletes to hopefully take part in this sport which is a great way to improve your athletic abilities in running jumping and throwing. There are league team events for under 11 and under 13 age groups and individual events for under 15 age group. If you would like to take part at Sportshall please contact myself Steve Torrance as Coordinator or Jane Gandee or Pete Spelman.
Winchester young athletes travelled to Andover to compete in the second league match of the Hampshire Sportshall league. The under 11 girls team performed magnificently again to finish second in the match against nine other teams. They now lie second overall in the league to Southampton after the first two matches.
Despite having six athletes instead of the eight allowed the under 11 boys team did really well to finish fourth in the match. This keeps the under 11 boys fourth overall in the league.
Just as in the first match the under 13 girls only had four competing. They all competed admirably but understandably finished sixth in the match which leaves them sixth overall.
Hopefully in the next match a fuller team can be produced.
In the under 13 boys event Winchester did well to finish third in the match as they also only had four athletes. The under 13 boys team remains third overall.
The only under 15 athlete competing was Josh Goble. He finished second and won the standing long jump event.
