Dear All,

Sports at BSB have started with the same great involvement and excitement as they ended. Last year we had 579 registered sport players participating in at least 1 of the 48 sport teams we fielded last academic year for 2013-2014. In Season 1 this year we have 174 students registered for secondary, 163 students in primary, & our biggest highlight is 141 students in both primary/secondary have tried out for Aquabears swim program. The swimming program simple keeps growing and growing. Moreover, we are hosting our first formal swim meet “BSB’s Starter Swim Meet” on Saturday 20th September from 8:30am-1:00pm. Monday through Friday there are up to and around 200+ students training or playing matches/games at BSB which is incredible.

As Season 1 is well underway please take a moment to read through the many results these past two weeks have given us. Other things to note: U15 FOBISIA try-outs conclude this week. The team will be formally announced Monday 22nd September with trainings to formally begin Monday 6th October. Also the week of 22nd September our House Sport program begins with Y5 Football on Monday 22nd, Y6 Football Wednesday 24th, Y10 Rugby/Netball Wednesday 24th, and Y11 Rugby/Netball Friday 26th. House Sports are fully inclusive for all BSB students interested to play competitive sport meaning if you want to play everyone gets a chance to do so.

Finally, the aim of the Sports program at BSB is ultimately to allow any and all students who want to play competitive sport the opportunity either through our internal House System or on one of the many Sports teams that play against other international schools in Beijing and internationally. Though Season 1 sign-ups are officially closed for secondary & primary, please stop by the Sport Office to register for Season 2/3/4. Aquabears try-outs are open throughout the year. Please stop by the Aquatics office for more information or to sign up email: Aquabears@britishschool.org.cn .

In the most recent match the Under 19 Girls volleyball team played Harrow International School. In the opening set BSB took an early lead through some good serving from Amy Deng and Juanita Eben. The set was won easily through good team work and ball control.

In the second set the bench players all enjoyed quality time on the court. Once again through good serving and team play the girls opened up a commanding lead. The set was over and the girls seemed very positive about winning the third set.

Poor serving, returning and team play lead to an evenly contested third set. After poor service and dropping some set points the girls lost the set 26 to 24. After the wake-up call in the third set the girls refocused and crushed Harrow easily in the fourth set. Excellent serving from Juanita Eben and Tiffany Raaf ensured an easy win in the fourth set. This is now the girl’s third win of the season and they remain on target to win their ISAC division (Div. 3). Last league match is scheduled for 8th October vs. THIS @BSB. The ISAC Tournament is scheduled for 18th October @HISB. Lastly following ISAC, the girls are preparing for ACAMIS in Macau November 6th to 9th which will finish off the season for U19 volleyball.

BSB 24 vs. HISB 25

BSB 18 vs. HISB 25

Results: BSB 0 to HISB 3 (L)

This was our first competitive match and we found ourselves playing against a very strong and older team from Dulwich (DCB). The team from DCB have played together for much longer than our younger mostly U16 players. We had a large turnout and most players experienced some court time.

The match should be seen as a learning experience to see where we might be in future. The first set we played well trying to play three-touch-volleyball and went down 25-11. Changes made to the starting 6 did affect the flow of the game and we went down 25-5. The third set we actually played some good volleyball and demonstrated some good blocking skills and wells as picking up in back court. Well done to all players. This will I believe be our most difficult match of the season.

Our second match against Harrow (HISB) though we lost the performance was much improved. The boys had a lot of opportunities and really should have taken set 2 as we were 20-12 up at one stage.

The matches have showed we need to work on a few things and the lads agreed to the highlight the following:

1. More mobility on court-drills to encourage this and also taking responsibility for the ball and anticipating where it might go;

2. Positions on court and role of each i.e. number 6 - positions for blocking covering back court;

3. Skills of blocking, serving and service receive need work. Spiking also needs to be looked at so we can develop the right technique;

4. Service again needs more practice to refine it although we have shown a lot better form for serving this is something we need to continue to work to get better.

The boys next scheduled ISAC league match is Monday 22nd September vs. YCIS @BSB. The ISAC tournament is scheduled for 1st November @DSP. Lastly following ISAC, the boys are preparing for ACAMIS in Macau November 6th to 9th which will finish off the season for U19 volleyball.

BSB U19 boys footballers played in the first ever Fall Lions Cup Football Tournament at DCB.  The boys played DSP first and lost a close match 3-2 despite leading for most of the game. The next match was against DCB and defensive errors cost the team. DCB ran out 4-0 winners with BSB feeling the heat and missing a host of chances.

U19/U16 Baseball vs. Sport Beijing @ISB

BSB 12 vs. SBJ 13 (L)


U19/U16 Baseball vs. ISB @ISB

BSB 3 vs. ISBJV 9 (L)

Baseball is in full swing for its 4th consecutive year at BSB. We played our first games against the Sport Beijing “All Stars” & ISB Dragons JV teams coming up a little short in both but overall used these games as an opportunity to try out a number of players/students at different positions. Pitching is always key at this level but we have two good ones in right hander Kimbo Weng & left hander Philip Moon. Another important position catcher, we had an early injury to Tony Choi but Jason Hwang has filled in incredible well. He will be counted on a great deal this season but Tony will be missed having played baseball for BSB every season it has been offered. The boys overall have batted well with Challey Choi & Ray Lee leading the team in extra base hits and runs scored. Unfortunately the baseball season is a short one but the boys next scheduled game is Saturday 20th September vs. SBJ @BSB. Our season ending tournament will be the ISB Fall Baseball Classic scheduled for 16th & 18th October @ISB. BSB is the defending tournament winners.

U14 Boys Football ISAC Football Exchange @ISB

BSB  1 vs.  ISB1 1 (Draw)

BSB 4 vs. ISB2  0 (W)

BSB 1 vs. DSP 7 (L)

The U14 Boys Football team played in the annual ISAC football exchange with mixed results.  In the first game they played ISB First Team and were leading for the majority of the game until a defensive error cost the team victory, the game finished 1-1. The second game was against ISB Second Team and BSB played some excellent football to finish 4-0 winners.  In the last game the team was not only playing against DSP, but also fatigue as the team did not have any substitutes. DSP (and fatigue) ran out easy winners 7-1.

U14 Girls Football ISAC Football Exchange @BSB

BSB 3 vs. ISB 0 (W)

BSB 1 vs. DSP 4 (L)

BSB 2 vs. WAB 1 (W)

First games of a brand new season for the Under 14s girls’ football team, started their campaign in the annual ISCA football exchange on 13th September. Our girls’ team had three impressive performances throughout the entire exchange tournament. The girls’ first game in the morning was against ISB, and with a shaky start of the game, the girls produced a solid performance, by creating lots of chances at their opponents goal, but more importantly they defended well together as a unit to produce their first clean sheet and a 3-0 win!

After a brief short break the girl’s next game was against DSP. This was a very tough game for the girls, considering it’s the first time they have played together as a team, and within the first half the girls was 3-0 down at Half-time. With a positive team talk, the girls did improve their performance and was rewarded with a very good goal from Banu, the final score finished 4-1.

The final game was against WAB and with the sun shining and the girls being really tired having played two games back to back, it was a very hard thought victory, with the MVP our outstanding goal keeper Jule making wonderful saves to keep the girls in the game. The final score was a 2-1 win with Laura scoring a wonder strike from nearly half way! Two wins and a 1 loss; the girls did themselves and BSB proud! Well Done!!

U13 Boys Football ISAC Football Exchange @DCB

BSB  11 vs.  THIS 0 (W)

BSB 0 vs. TIS 3 (L)

BSB 2 vs. HISB 4 (L)

The u13 boys participated in a friendly tournament held at Dulwich on Saturday. An understrength squad of just 8 players performed heroically in scorching temperatures and gave a solid account of themselves for BSB. Their first game was a walkover against THIS, winning 11-0 with every player apart from the goalkeeper getting on the score sheet. Back to back games against IST and HISB proved too much for the small squad, with late and controversial goals meaning BSB were condemned to 3-0 and 4-2 defeats respectively. This was harsh on the boys who had played some sublime football in both games and deserved more – the toughest opponent on the day was fatigue and tiredness, and the boys can look forward with confidence to a re-match against both teams in the ISAC tournament.

U13 Girls Football ISAC Football Exchange @HISB

BSB 0 vs. ISB 2 (L)

BSB 3 vs. TIS 0 (W)

BSB 0 vs. DCB 1 (L)

12 year 8 competed in the U13 tournament on Saturday. They played 3 games in total.

Game 1 was against ISB. The girls played well and their passing improved throughout the game. Their teamwork improved as the game progressed and they were working well together at the end of the match. Unfortunately, ISB scored 2 goals early in the match and the final score ended being ISB 2 – BSB 0.

Game 2 was against TIS. The girls started the game off extremely well with a goal in the first 2 minutes of the match. This put them on a great high and they continued their fantastic streak, scoring another goal in the first half and a third in the second half.

The final score was BSB 3 – TIS 0.

Game 3 was against DCB. The girls worked fantastic together and communicated with one another throughout the game. We had a number of chances to score but unfortunately the ball could not find the back of the net. Dulwich then scored in the last few minutes of the game, with the score not reflecting at all how the girls played.

The final score was DCB 1 – BSB 0.

The MVP was Nicole Kee who played all matches and only came off to sub a couple of times. Her fitness was the best out of all the girls and she chased all loose balls down and was able to create space and look for the pass. She created a number of chances on goal for both herself and other players. Her sportsmanship was fantastic throughout and she continued to congratulate players on and off the field etc.

The MIP was Nina Krause. She improved throughout the tournament with her confidence growing throughout. She was able to communicate well with players and set up a number of chances for both herself and other players. She went on to score 2 goals in the match against TIS.

U12 Boys Football ISAC Football Exchange @BCIS

BSB  1 vs.  BIBA 4 (L)

BSB 4 vs. YCIS 1 (W)

BSB 1 vs. WAB 8 (L)

The U12 boys played their first competitive matches at the BCIS exchange. The first match against BIBA was a tight affair with the BSB boys acclimatizing to the new 7-a-side format and their positions on the pitch. Despite some nice interplay and free flowing football, an unfortunate penalty call gave BIBA the lead and confidence to go on and score more. The score line of 4-1 was harsh on BSB who battled well for the duration of the game. The next game against YCIS gave BSB their first taste of glory with a 4-1 victory, which should have been by a greater margin. The only blot on the BSB copybook was a dubious penalty awarded for a non-existent handball but this did little to deter the boys. Four different goal scorers highlighted the efficient play and contribution from the whole team. The final game of the day was against a WAB side with a huge squad of players, both in numbers and size. WAB cruised to victory playing some very slick football against the tired legs of BSB, crafting some fantastic goals that wouldn’t look out of place in the Premier League. Despite this, BSB played some of their best football in this game and were unlucky not to add more to their total of a single goal – the woodwork and WAB goalkeeper denying BSB more goals than they deserved. The day was a fantastic learning curve and the U12 team can build on this experience.

MVP for the tournament was held between 3 players – Warren Eben, Joonas Hannula, and Luka Tolonen. All three showed high levels of skill, fitness and determination across all of the matches played.

MVP – Jack Waterland for running tirelessly and scoring a world class goal, and Luka Tolonen for running the BSB midfield against some tough teams.

U12 Girls Football ISAC Football Exchange @HISB

BSB 0 vs. DCB 0 (Draw)

BSB 0 vs. ISB 2 (L)

BSB 1 vs. HISB 0 (W)

11 year 7 competed in a tournament on the 6th September.

Game 1 was against DCB. The girls started the tournament off well in this game, with good teamwork throughout the game. The girls’ passing and looking for space on the pitch went from strength to strength during the game, with our girls having a number of chances on goal. Unfortunately, the ball was unable to get to the back of the net and the final score ended as BSB 0 – DCB 0.

Game 2 was against ISB. Although the girls continued to go from strength to strength, ISB scored  an early goal which put our girls behind from the start. Although they continued to take shots at the goal, the ball was still unable to find the back of the net and the final score ended as BSB 0 – ISB 2.

Game 3 was against HISB. The girls were more determined than ever to score a goal in their final game, which was demonstrated by the level of teamwork on the pitch. The girls were passing accurately and able to find good space on the pitch. Their efforts finally paid off where they scored a goal in the second half. The final score finished as BSB 1 – HISB 0.

The MVP was Lena Siller. She played all matches with only 1 break during the last match. Lena continued to chase every loose ball and was chasing down all players. Although she usually plays striker, when needed she came back and helped her team in defence as well as cheering them on when they all began to tire.

The MIP was Lucia Kaiser. She went from strength to strength in every match played with her confidence growing with every minute. Lucia made some fantastic saves as goalkeeper, especially in the last match against HISB.
