Year 6 Quicksticks Tournament
11 February, 2022 from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
FOR ALL, Targeted, COMPETITIVE
All of our events will follow our new event themes; For All, Targeted & Competitive. These themes have been designed to ensure we provide events to benefit all young people.
FOR ALL– These events are for everyone and are delivered in school. They focus on providing 60 active mins for every child whilst supporting their physical, social and emotional wellbeing.
TARGETED– These events target specific groups of young people who would benefit the most from having positive experiences of sport, physical activity and competition. The activities and outcomes are designed to reflect the young people’s needs and motivations.
COMPETITIVE– These events are for pupils who are ready and prepared for competition and enjoy performing and competing against others. They provide the opportunity for competition in a positive and friendly environment where the focus is on enjoyment and supporting the wider development of young people as much as the outcome of the event itself.
This event is a Targeted event and is for pupils with low self confidence or poor social skills. The intent is to support pupils with school transition and to foster social connections.
Quicksticks is a mini version of hockey developed by England Hockey to introduce the game to primary school pupils.
