Yesterday was our last junior coaching session before the summer holidays in which we held a team challenge competition. Everyone did extremely well. The results were as follows:

  1. Strike Masters (Luke, Adam, Charley, Caitlin, Charlotte): 607 pts
  2. Silly Dip Sticks (Antonia, Jasmine, Dominic, Emma, Taya): 481 pts
  3. The Cheese Puffs (Joe, Joe, Adam, Bethany, Declan): 377 pts
  4. Hannah & Georgia’s (Georgia, Hannah, Thomas, Edward, Sophie, Oliver): 345 pts

We have had an extremely successful year and hope that all the children have enjoyed coming along to the coaching sessions. This year…

  • St. Mary’s Panthers won the Bury Junior School Sports Association Badminton League.
  • St. Mary’s Pumas came runners up in the Bury Junior School Sports Association Badminton League.
  • Jasmine was awarded the B.J.S.S.A. Badminton Fair Play award.
  • St. Mary’s were awarded the Swizzels Matlow Silver Trophy.
  • We have coached at least 34 children from years 4, 5 and 6 at St. Mary’s,
  • delivered 29 hours of junior coaching,
  • extended our coaching provision to include an adult session,
  • one of our helpers, David Saunders, has attended a Level 1 coaching course.

Our junior coaching sessions will restart on Monday 12th September 2011. We look forward to welcoming back everyone that can join us and also to any new juniors who are interested in giving Badminton a go!

Please note that although the junior coaching has finished for the summer, the adult session will continue as normal.
