Junior Tigers Update: May 6, 2021

Benchball House Tournament
Bring on the Benchball! On May 6 and 7, the Junior School students in Grades 3 to 7 will engage in our second House Tournament of the year. This highly unique school year has brought many innovations, including a pivot away from traditional weekly House Games, into the newly minted House Tournaments. In January we hosted a successful Pinball Tournament, and we are fired up about this week’s Benchball Tournament. Over the next two days, each grade level will arrive in the gymnasium to compete in a thrilling and exciting 80-minute, round-robin tournament for Benchball and House supremacy. 

Who will win the battle and which House will come out on top? Stay tuned… 

Athletics Explained Coffee Morning (Grade 2 and up): Thurs. May 20 at 9:00 am
At YHS, Athletics formally begins in Grade 3, and for many students it continues all the way through Grade 12. Participating in sport is a wonderful opportunity to build physical literacy skills, self-efficacy, and independence. However, the beginning of the journey is not just for athletes, it is also the initial school athletic experience for parents. Naturally, this means questions, and lots of them. 

To help parents get a great start in Athletics, we are hosting an Athletics Explained Coffee Morning. We invite all Grade 2 parents who are interested. It is also open to parents from any grade who may be interested. With the pandemic causing massive interruptions to school sports for the past year and a half, there may be many questions about a school athletic season.

Junior Tigers Update: April 29, 2021

What a cool week. Literally and figuratively. This week, I think the athletes benefitted from a dip in the temperature. It is great to be out in the sun, but it is a fine line to dance for young athletes’ as their bodies are still learning to regulate while exercising. On the figurative side of things, we used a very cool app called SprintTimer to record our Time Trials in Track & Field. SprintTimer is electronic photo timing that is accurate to 100th of a second. This is a big time breakthrough for Track & Field technology. Additionally, we had some very cool parents donate the funds to provide an ultimate disc to every single one of our Grade 5 and 6 Ultimate players. Thank you so much!
