National Schools Indoor Open Ski Championships, Leeds

On Sunday 20th May the ski race squad, Mrs Berkin, Miss Keats and myself travelled up to Leeds for the National Schools Indoor Open Championships.

We arrived in Leeds at 3pm all very excited and ready for our training session on the slope from 4pm-6pm. Getting ourselves prepared and carrying out lots of practice runs of the race course. After a very tiring 2 hours and long drive we enjoyed a very yummy super and then headed off to bed.

Race day.

The children got themselves suited and booted and onto the slope for some pre-race training. At 10.30am the first race began.

All the children got to carry out 3 runs of the race course, with their fastest time putting them onto the results table. We also had 2 teams an A team and a B team.

A very well done to all the children that took part in the race and an extra special well done to our children here at The Grove, who all came home with 1, if not 2 medals. Well done and I’m very proud of each and every one of you.The B team were entered into the U10’s Boys Team competition, also coming in at 2nd place.

I would just like to say a very big thank you to all the parents that made it up to Leeds and for all your support.
