Interview from the captain…

Do you feel like it took a lot of team work? 

Yes, because we were the only school there so we had to work together to beat anal futsal teams. 

Did it take a lot of training to get that far?

Yes, we trained every Tuesday and Thursday. 

How did it feel to win? 

Really good, we knew we had a chance when we beat Hertford, just had to finish the job off as we had already played the better teams. 

Where do you go from now?? 

NATIONALS!!!!! We have to train hard to be the best team in England!!! 

Best of luck boys and Mr Walsh!!

Eddie Jones coaches Passmores

Pupils of Passmores Academy had a once in a lifetime opportunity to be coached by England head coach Eddie Jones at the home of English rugby Twickenham stadium. The pupils were full of energy and enthusiasm during the coaching session and Eddie was impressed. He said “the energy was awesome and the girls showed the boys how it’s done”. The pupils got shirts, balls and anything else they could signed by Eddie. The pupils were very aware of Eddie’s recent success on the international stage and were clearly inspired by today’s session.

Montel Douglas with Sky Sports…

On Wednesday the 19th Montel Douglas come in to visit the Sky Sports students. We had a brilliant day. Once we learnt about Montel’s background, she taught us that there are 6 important factors you need to be a successful athlete which are,  mental toughness, hunger to achieve, people skills, sports and life knowledge, breaking barriers and planning for success. After that the students did some team building exercises for example, everyone was on a bench and we had to get into height order without falling off. After that we went on to the astro and we started off with lots of drills such as high knees which then led us onto lots of sprinting, hurdle drills and core. For the last session off the day, we come back inside and Montell got us to write our own goals down for the future. Overall everyone really enjoyed the day. Massive thank you to Montell Douglas for coming in and showing us some very god things and teaching us about the sky sports programme.
