The U8s are the triumphant champions of the first ECCLESATHLON™ CHALLENGE CUP I with a score of 120 points over 3 weeks. There were many valiant efforts from many competitors but in the words of The Highlander and Sam Simpson, there can be only one!
The U8’s winner's prize, selected by themselves, is a team Laser Quest and Wall Climbing experience (when restrictions permit). Congratulations to the U8s players, parents and coaches on their commitment and efforts during the last lockdown.
Christmas is behind us and Lockdown is in front of us, again. We can sit, eat and playstation for the next 6 weeks or we can keep active and engaged. Team training on-site may now be suspended but that doesn't stop us from keeping in contact and getting together online.
This week a coaches zoom meeting will discuss plans for a ECCLESATHLON™ CHALLENGE CUP II, which we hope to commence this weekend, 9/10 January.
As before, the Ecclesathlon challenge will invite all players and teams across the club to work on their rugby skills, fitness and knowledge at home each week to accumulate points. Teams can bank points towards their weekly total any time up to midnight on Thursday. A league table will keep a record of the scores and BIG points mean BIG prizes!
As before, the goal of the challenge will be to promote connection between players during lockdown and to reward their activity, effort and ingenuity. Squad size and participation alone does not ensure success, it's what results from the sessions that really counts. More details to follow.
