Term 1 has been full of brilliant sporting moments at Lindfield! Despite having a disappointingly short summer sport season, the boys trained well with their Kickstart and Newington coaches and the efforts of the boys did lead to improvements in skills, although they didn’t get the chance to showcase these due to cancelled games! Hopefully the winter season sees more fixtures able to go ahead!
The boys have commenced pre-season training with Development Officers from Sydney FC and NSW Rugby overseeing our sessions for the remainder of the term. All winter sport will commence in Week 1 of Term 2. We are very excited to have Koola Park back in action, and will be utlising it as much as possible for both Football and Rugby fixtures.
As a part of our connection to the Sydney FC Football program, 40 Year 5 and 6 Football players attended the Australia (Socceroos) vs UAE match at Allianz Stadium last Tuesday evening. The boys participated in a March Past around the field before kick-off and were given tickets to attend the game. It was a great night, made even better by witnessing the Socceroos win 2-0. Thanks to all of the parents who came out and supported the event.
The Combined Primary Cross Country Carnival was a great success at Stanmore! The Lindfield boys shone in both their participation in the main events, and our representation in the Newington Team to compete at IPSHA Cross Country. The boys trained hard in the lead up to the carnival, with many hill runs from the mini field onto the footsal field, and their efforts were well rewarded at the carnival.
Congratulations must go to Max Yeoland (Year 6) who was selected in the CIS AFL Team and will compete at the NSW PSSA (State) Championships in Parkes in May. Congratulations also to Hamish McIntyre (Year 6) who placed 4th at the IPSHA Diving Competition and progressed to place 2nd in his age group at the NSW CIS Competition, meaning that he will represent CIS at the upcoming NSW PSSA (State) Competition next week.
