Sun Valley Champion Shield Tournament
Congratulations to our U13A Netball team who participated in this tournament. They played 17 matches in two days and had a thoroughly fantastic experience, showing true Wynberg spirit throughout the tournament with their war cries and support for the other Schools. We are so proud to announce that they won the “Spirit Trophy” for the tournament – a truly prestigious award – which they deserved.
Sweet Valley Tournament
Our U10s, 11s, 12s and 13s participated in a fabulous Netball Tournament this last weekend at Sweet Valley, amidst much excitement. We cannot describe the enjoyment our young players get out of playing as part of a team in an environment where team spirit and fun is so prevalent! No scores were taken but it was evident that all of the teams improved throughout the course of the tournament.
Our first round of fixtures takes place on 25th April 2018, when we play Rustenburg. Teams have been finalised and emails will go out shortly. Please check your emails carefully to see which team your daughter is representing and where her team is playing.
Western Province Trials for Netball
Congratulations to Marissa Phillips and Taurus Mackenzie, who made it through to round two of the WP trials. This is a huge achievement.
The season kicked off last week with fixtures against Rustenburg. Tiny U9’s graced the turf sporting large shin pads and gum guards and were very cute, but also quite assertive in their skills. U10’s, U11’s and 13’s played with gusto and the matches were enjoyed by all. We are looking forward to working with these players throughout the season and giving them the good grounding and experience they need to move forward with their hockey.
Please note that, for their own safety, players who arrive at matches without their gum guards will not be allowed to play hockey. Please ensure that your daughter has her gum guard with her, as it is devastating for her to arrive at the matches all excited and to be turned away.
Western Province Trials for Hockey
Congratulations to Ciara Williams, Aliya Domingo and Jesse Gradwell who have been selected to represent the South Zone in further Western Province U13 trials.
Chess afternoons are very well attended and Chess matches for those selected have commenced on a Friday afternoon.
We have lots of new members to our Cross country sessions and are commencing with training in the afternoons. Races commence on Friday 11 May 2018 and all final selections of runners who will be representing WGJS will be notified via email to parents.
Netball and Hockey Friday afternoons from 13h00 to 14h00
All players who do not get the opportunity to play fixtures for WGJS during the week are invited to attend Friday afternoon Netball (on the courts) and Hockey (on the astro) to get the chance to have a runaround and some game time. Hockey Goalkeeper training takes place at the same time and all aspirant Hockey Goalkeepers are invited to attend.
WINTER SQUAD WATER-POLO
Takes place at the WGJS swimming pool on a Friday from 13h00 to 14h00. We are quite aware that all of our girls are very busy and will hold open the squad slot for a further two Friday sessions.
