Sport: Eyes set on FOBISIA success

High School teams will depart for FOBISIA in Phuket this week...Catch up on the performances and highlights of our Flames and Marlins sports teams...Stay abreast of upcoming sporting events and competitions in the weeks to come.

High School Sport

U13 FOBISIA Games

Our team departs this Wednesday for Phuket to participate in the U13 Games.

This is the first team to compete with the very best of British International Schools in Asia, having spent the last few years at a level below. We’re excited for this new challenge which is testament to the commitment and hard work that all of our Flames and Marlins show.

Basketball

Our U12s had a good game against Ballers Academy at the weekend, running out comfortable winners. This was good experience for our Y7s who will be stepping up next year to fill the places of the current Y8s.

We will look to continue to offer weekend Academy opportunities throughout the off-season to engage our ballers in some competitive action.

123 sport 1

Rugby

We had our first U13 and U15 rugby games against opposition from the French School, LFIB. The boys acquitted themselves well, scoring some good tries despite losing both games. This is a promising start for our teams as they begin their Rugby journey.

Volleyball

We have our second parents v students match on Tuesday 20 March at 4.00 p.m. Please feel free to come along and support. As well as being great experience for our girls, it is also good fun for players and spectators alike! And the girls are looking for revenge after their loss in Game 1…

Tennis

This past weekend our Under 13 Flames Tennis Team was in action against four other area international schools in a tennis tournament hosted by our official tennis provider Spin & Slice Tennis Academy. Our boys and girls demonstrated some truly exciting match play in this tune-up before FOBISIA in a couple of weeks.

Holiday Camps

We will continue to offer activities for those who wish to participate in organised sport during the holidays, starting with our Multi Sport Camp at Songkran (9-12 April). We’ll also offer another bball camp, although it is likely to run in the afternoon at Songkran.

Details will be sent home this week. As usual, we’ll also use Facebook and Instagram to keep you updated.

School Online Communication System - SOCS

We hope you may have had a chance to look at our news Sports portal, where we are already posting fixtures, team sheets, photos etc for our busy sports schedule. You may access it using this link.

The site is open for players and parents alike to check rosters, schedules etc. It is a great tool for communication between coaches, players and parents, though unlike the current system, the emphasis will be on parents and players to be proactive in checking the site, rather than awaiting emails from coaches!

We will still need to communicate via email for transport requirements for the time being.

We recommend that you visit the site and familiarise yourself with it. If you have any feedback, please let either damon.se@standrews.ac.th">Mr Damon or ollie.fa@standrews.ac.th">Mr Ollie know.

By August, we hope everyone will be ready to use SOCS to follow the action!

Primary School Sport

Our FOBISIA children had some great success at Shrewsbury on  5 March. Preparations are going well and the team is looking strong for the Games in June.  Our U9 Football teams have also been in action this week.

 

Before the end of Term 2 all the children from Years 3-6 will do their second running endurance test around the school and they have their Aquathon (during their swim lesson) that starts from 12 March. The running endurance test is not a race and is not about running fast. It allows children to work at their own pace and run for as long as they can without stopping. Once they stop then the test stops and the distance they have run is their score. We will give the children the scores from Term 1 so they know what they are trying to beat. Once again during this time we will be talking to children about living a healthy lifestyle, the types of the exercise they can do away from school and the importance of exercise.

Football

The second round of the TISAC Festivals were completed for the U9 children this week.   The girls fell just short after winning their first 2 games but lost their final game is a close game to the eventual winners.   In one of the games the girls were losing 2-0 but with a great second half performance they came back to win 3-2.

123 sport 2

The boys had their second festival last Thursday and came out champions and undefeated across both TISAC festivals.

123 sport 3

Also on Saturday our U9 teams went to Patana for the Patana U9 tournament.  We took 3 boys teams and our girls team which, other than the hosts, was the most participants from any school in Bangkok. After coming second in the TISAC League, the U9 girls came back stronger than ever and produced a brilliant display winning the tournament and not losing a game. Our 3 boys teams had mixed results with our U9 Boys A team falling short but playing some fantastic football. Our Boys B and C teams played against some tough opposition and both finished 3rd in their groups.

Gymnastics

The Moose Games is STA’s first ever gymnastics competition and will be held from 31 March to 1 April. The squad has been working hard on their routines and now look to perform against the best schools in Bangkok. The new Flames Gymnastics kit is nearly here and it will be great to see our gymnasts perform at this level. This year is our first year with a gymnastics squad so it is fantastic that we can already compete. This is just the start of our gymnastics journey and we now look forward to adding more events to our school calendar. The competition falls on the same weekend as the Marlin Mayhem so these children will have to choose which competition they want to take part in.

The Moose Games Competition Times

Our Level 2 girls will compete on Saturday 31 March in the last session from 4.30 p.m. If the schedule runs on time, they will finish around 7.30 p.m.

Our Level 3 girls will compete on Sunday 1 April from 9.00 a.m. and are scheduled to finish around 11.30 a.m.

Basketball

It’s a difficult time of the year as, for most schools, basketball is out of season.  But on Thursday we welcomed Traill U11 Girls to STA for a friendly fixture. Our girls were triumphant and enjoyed some competition

123 sport 7

After the success of their first fixture last term, the Year 4 boys and girls squad have been invited to go to Patana to play against their Year 4 teams on Thursday 22 March. The selected children will leave school at 1.15 p.m. and head to Patana for a 2.30 p.m. tip off.

Swimming

There are 2 swim meets scheduled for March. These will have the strongest swimmers in Bangkok and it’s a great chance to compare and compete against the best.

 

  • BISAC Swim Meet - 17/18 March @ NIST

  • Marlin Mayhem - 31 March - 1 April

Teeball

Four years ago we took our FOBISIA teams to Shrewsbury to which we were convincingly beaten in every game. This year we won 3 out of 4 games and the tables were turned with our children showing greater understanding and skill levels. Well done to all the children for their hard work and progress. We have future games to come before the FOBISIA Games with these friendly games giving our children some valuable experience before the Games.

  • Teeball @ TCIS - U11 Girls selected team - Monday 26 March

  • Teeball @ TCIS - U11 Boys selected team - Wednesday 4 April

  • Teeball @ ASB - All FOBISIA team - Wednesday 28 March

  • Teeball @ NIST - TBC

Aquathon

The dates for the Aquathon are a little complicated due to the children’s busy schedules, but the majority of the aquathons will take place in the week 12 to 16 March. Exceptions to this are the Y3 and Y4 Tuesday swimming groups who will have their aquathons on 20 March and the Y5 Monday swimming group will have theirs on 2 April.

The children will be asked to run and then swim the distance they feel they are capable of. These events are a great way to help the children work on their determination and resilience. By completing these type of events and not giving up children will get a real sense of achievement and a belief that they can achieve anything with hard work. There are two Aquathons:

Normal Aquathon

Year 3/4 - 3 laps (850 m) running and 2 loops in the pool

Year 5/6 - 4 laps (1 km) running and 2 loops in the pool

Aquathon X

Year 3/4 - 5 (1.25km) laps running and 3 loops in the pool

Year 5/6 - 7 (1.75km) laps running and 4 loops in the pool

FOBISIA Training

Now is a time to start thinking about the kit your child will need for the FOBISIA Games. If you go to our uniform shop all these items will be available.  Also, children that do not have the Flames Teeball logo on their PE top can bring it to K.Seung to get the logo.

  • STA Cap
  • STA tour bag or rucksack
  • Athletics vest
  • PE top with Flames Teeball logo
  • PE shorts x 2 or 3 (athletics, football and teeball)
  • Yellow football top
  • STA football socks

Term 3 Training

  • Wednesday - All FOBISIA SQUAD (Years 6,5,4) will have athletics training. This will give all children a chance to work on their athletic events.

  • Friday - All FOBISIA SQUAD (Years 6,5,4) will have Teeball training at the Arsenal training facility Pridi Soi 21. We normally only do this a couple of times before FOBISIA, but by using the bigger teeball pitches at Arsenal for longer, we will be better prepared.

If you have any questions please email damon.se@standrews.ac.th">Mr Damon.

Saturday Programme and Outside Opportunities

Our Saturday Programme continues to grow with so many great sporting options for our children. It is great that STA students can come to the Primary School and keep active over the weekend and have fun with their friends playing sport. On Saturday mornings we have Gymnastics, girls Football, Yoga, Club Basketball and our Flames Basketball Academy. Currently, we are looking at opportunities to extend the football so that all of our children have the chance to play football at the weekend. We are also trying to encourage more children to join up for endurance events that take place specifically for children at the weekends. If you would like to know more about our Saturday program please email Mr Damon (damon.se@standrews.ac.th">damon.se@standrews.ac.th) or to enquire about the endurance events, please email Khun Seung (seung.sa@standrews.ac.th">seung.sa@standrews.ac.th).
