The Berkshire Sportshall U11 County Championships took place on Sunday 13th December at TVAC and as ever there was some magnificent Sportshall athletics throughout the afternoon with the results hanging in the balance until the very final event.
The boys Blue team performed very strongly all afternoon and came either 1st or 2nd in each of the track events as well as achieving some great results in the field events which led to them securing a comprehensive margin of victory at the end of the afternoon. The Red team also competed really strongly to secure a well deserved 6th place.
As expected our relatively young and inexperienced girls teams faced very tough competition from Holy Family CS, Dedworth Middle and eventual winners Reading AC Blue team. Throughout the afternoon our girls all competed strongly and showed excellent spirit coming 3rd overall.

IMPORTANT : Spring half term camp : MONDAY 15th - THURSDAY 18th February 2016
After the success of the extra sessions at half term in October we are looking to make half term camps a regular feature for all of our members.
Spring 2016 will be no exception.
Sign-up sheets will be at TVAC from the start of next term – you can come for 1 or all 4 half day sessions from 9:30 - 12:30 (we will look at an early drop off facility if there is the demand).
This is a really great opportunity for you to get really ready for the outdoor season, or just to hone your technique that little bit more.
