Wraparound Care After School: Sports at Elmhurst

Sport plays a huge role at Elmhurst, and it is inspiring to see so many of the boys engaging in the after school provision provided for them. Two of these clubs - Football Development and Basketball Club - have been very successful and well attended at the start of a busy year.

Football Development is a club run by Mr Venier on a Wednesday afternoon, which aims to develop the footballing skills of boys in years 5 and 6. Although we are only at the very beginning of the year, it is clear that the boys are already well on their way to being able to compete at a very high level for Elmhurst. They are focused and determined, and listen carefully to the specialist coaching on offer in order to improve their already excellent skills. We are all excited to see the boys competing in the upcoming matches and tournaments, and we are confident that they will perform to the best of their abilities. We’ll have to make some more room in the trophy cabinet!

Another huge success this year has been Basketball Club, run by Mr Rhimes for years 5 and 6. The boys have been learning the basics of basketball, such as passing, dribbling and shooting and are putting these skills into practice in small game scenarios. It is clear that there are a number of talented players already, and we are looking forward to celebrating their development as the year goes on.

These two clubs are just a small part of the wrap around care provided at Elmhurst, but both are wonderful examples of how sports can enable boys to flourish outside of the classroom, as well as inside it!
