Inter School Sport
Inter School Sports
We believe that the opportunities provided to pupils at Beaver Road are excellent. Competitively, children in all year groups will have the chance to compete in several different sports across the year, including, football, rugby, tennis, swimming, hockey, rounders, cricket, athletics, cross country, cycling, basketball, netball, handball, futsal, gymnastics, boccia and dodge ball.
Beaver Road's selection process for inter school teams
Over the academic year, we enter numerous competitions across the year in approximately 15 different sports, mostly aimed at children in Year 6 with the occasional opportunity going to children in year 5. For each competition, we enter two teams, an inspire team and an excel team. The inspire team is made up of children who want to compete for school but the main focus is about learning and having fun. The excel teams are selected depending on who is excelling at that particular sport. These competitions are about of course having fun but competing against the top children in primary schools across Manchester and beyond.
The teams are selected from 1 of 3 ways:
1) Some of our teams are selected via trials, which are open to anyone who would like to try out.
2) Some teams are selected from how children have performed at a particular sport in their PE lessons.
3) Some teams are selected from a list of children who have put their names forward.
There will be times when some children go to more than one event, however, our main aim is to give everyone in year 6 that wants to play for a school team the opportunity to do so, whether that is for an excel or inspire team. The same children will not compete in every competition although, if they are excelling in a particular area of sport, they will be considered for selection regardless of whether they have competed for school or not. At Beaver Road, we believe passionately in enabling as many children as possible to take part in competitive sport.
