October Sports Update

SPORTS UPDATE

This month saw our sports teams take to the pool and field for their first competitive fixtures. The enthusiasm and effort by the pupils has been brilliant and we are excited about the competitions and events to come.

The girls football teams are thriving. With over 50 girls competing to play in our three teams lead by Coach Kerry, Tammy and Mohammed. A positive start to the season saw three U9 wins against Al Raha school and a narrow U11 defeat against West Yas. Amity took their very first swimming team to a gala at Al Raha school. With only trial session in the small pool the odds were against the swimmers. However they performed extremely well did themselves and the school proud earning 147 points and finishing 4th. We will be holding a another trial session on the 24th of October for all swimmers old and new who would like to compete in the next gala on the 5th of November.

Over 50 students each week are playing touch rugby from year 3-6 at school. Our U11 team have already played their first two matches in the off island league. The U9s have their first games on Wednesday the 18th of October. Sports at Amity is growing substantially. Since the start of term we have introduced afterschool Athletics, Badminton, Sailing, Boys Football and the Super 11 programme.

Additionally, Amity offers a whole host of external provider paid activities offering students the opportunity to take part in range of sports and physical activities. If you are a parent and would like to assist the PE department we would love your help. Please contact the PE team. You will be required to comply with Amity policy which includes providing a good conduct certificate.

Captain Tim is at the final stages of receiving ADEK approval, until that time practical sailing lessons will continue to be PE lessons.
