Competition is an important component for success and provides the motivation to achieve.
That’s why Hyde School Sports devote considerable energy into introducing children to experience different sports and further develop many grassroots games, with girls’ football showing an encouraging surge.
However, as Kay Hawke, speaking about the ethos that drives Hyde School Sports explained, “Winning trophies isn’t everything, it’s more important to teach our kids about teamwork and provide them with a positive learning environment and, of course, to have fun whilst they’re doing it!” “There’s no doubt that the lessons learned through being actively involved in sport are always valuable lessons for future life.”
So, in one of the last tournaments of the school year for Hyde School Sports, organisers staged ‘The Hyde Primary Schools Girls Football Tournament’ at Hyde Community College.
In a well attended inter-schools competition, over 40 children showcased their individual and team skills on the pitch with some fabulous play which saw many fantastic goals flying in.
At the end of a hot and sunny afternoon of quality football, the team from Dowson Primary School emerged as the ultimate winners of the tournament by winning every one of their games on their way to lifting the trophy!
