Sportsmaster | Junior School

Please have the boys on time for all sport and training. I am often reminding boys to be at their coach’s feet 30 minutes before matches on Saturdays and to arrive for Tuesday training sessions at 6:55am. Boys are often arriving just before games are due to commence or sessions have begun. Neither is a good look or sound preparation for what is to follow.

We had two more wins in Touch Football and pleasingly five wins from seven cricket contests on the weekend. Our 5/6 Intra boys also secured a large victory in Basketball and our 4B V secured their first triumph of the year against Mosman Prep away at the Mosman Indoor Sports Centre.

Winter Season

Round 1 is on Saturday, 24 April and runs through all five Saturdays in May (1, 8, 15, 22, 29) as well as Saturday, 5 June. No sport will be on June 12 (Long Weekend) then we have the holidays. Our final three rounds of winter competition (Rounds 8-10) begin immediately upon our return from the mid-year vacation and will be conducted are on 17, 24 and 31 July.

Thursday morning trials will commence on 25 March, the Thursday after summer season has ceased for Term 1. Boys are reminded that mouthguards are essential for rugby and shin guards for football as well as boots for all three winter sports.

If your son is selected in an Intra team for Winter, we will be commencing with Football for the first seven weeks in Term 2.

Once the draft draw is ready, I will load it onto the TGS App under ‘Fixtures for the season’ to give you a guide as to where matches will be hosted but please wait until teams are announced for exact times and locations. All home football matches for Football and Intra Sport will be held at Bressington Park.

We have a Winter Trials day on Saturday, 27 March. Cooke Park and Bressington Park will be used. Further details to come. IPSHA Cross Country is also on this day.

TGSJS Cross Country Championships

These will be held, weather permitting, on Friday morning, 19 March at school as a precursor to the IPSHA Cross Country which will take place at The Kings School. Only five boys will go in each age group to Kings, as a squad of 20.
