Apologies to all those that turned up today to find the school closed due to maintenance work. We were assured we would have access today and that club could run as usual and so we were very surprised ourselves to find that we could not get in. We will be back as usual in two weeks time.
Today was also going to be Candee's last day with us after 7 years fantastic service. We did buy her a lovely bunch of flowers, a bottle of wine and some truffle chocolates from everyone at the club, and others also bought her individual gifts. We would have loved to have done a big presentation to her today but that was not to be. As the flowers would not last we did give her the gifts today but she has promised to come back in one Saturday next half term to do a proper goodbye.
Have a great half term all and see you back on Saturday June 6th
This week we played French and "Three T" cricket to welcome in the summer and a bit of better weather. We also welcomed a new member Nicholas who got stuck in straight away and made such an impression that he was Star of the Week on his very first day. Well done Nicholas and welcome! We also played some football in the sunshine to round off the session
This week's session began with Capture the Flag, a team game based on agility and coordination that was lots of fun and the kids loved it. After that there were more agility games including Dodgeball and Benchball. In all three games teamwork is the key as well as good agility and coordination. By the end of the session the kids had certainly used up a lot of energy and had a lot of fun. Kerry was chosen as the Star this week - well done Kerry
Our Star of the Week this week was Adam Noga! We enjoyed some new games such as Crab Football and Danish Long Ball followed by some more traditional Athletics including High Jump.
We received our certificate of financial assistance through from Loughton Town Council who have, yet again, kindly assisted with funding the Sportability Club. In the photo are Matt, Anand and Pranav with coaches Alan and Jess. This much needed funding will help us continue to run through the summer and autumn terms.
Epping Forest Sportability Club is a multi-sports club for young people with mild to moderate physical and learning difficulties.
