The annual Primary Adapted Multi Sport PLUS Competition took place with school children from across the Cambridge & South Cambs School Sports Partnerships taking part.
The morning was full of activity and excitement with children competing in pairs as they rotated around four different sports: Polybat, Boccia, Table Cricket and New Age Kurling. For many of the children this was their first experience of representing their school and taking part in competitive sport so the event was very much about the children having an enjoyable experience and trying out some new sports, with an element of competition added in. The points from each activity were added together to give each pair a total and determine the winners.
Over 90 children aged 8-11 took part in the event which was hosted by Impington Village College who are a Youth Sport Trust lead school for Inclusion across the county. The Cambridge School Sports Partnership had 8 Schools attend the event.
The different sports were led and overseen by sports leaders from Impington VC. The leaders where truly inspirational and feedback from school staff was very positive. Many thanks to Cambridgeshire Cricket who helped oversee the table cricket on the day.
After all of the activities had taken place the points were added up and the finishing positions announced. Congratulations to Milton Road Primary School, The Grove Primary School, Colville Primary School and Stapleford Primary School who had the top 4 Cambridge pairs on the day. They will now come together to compete as a team of 8 and represent Cambridge at the Level 3 County School Games on Thursday 27th June, we wish them the best of luck!
Partnership Manager, Cath Heron said, “It was great to see so many youngsters taking part in this event, we had a record number of entries this year and it was nice to see some schools taking part for the first time. It’s important we provide opportunities for all young people to take part in physical activity and sport so that they can experience the enjoyment and benefits it can bring and this event certainly helped to do that.”
