Primary School Sport: Term 2 kicks off

An action-packed Term 2 kicks off with swimming, football and gymnastics but our other athletes have lots to look forward to this term as well.

 
070119 ps sport 1

Welcome back. Term 1 seems a distant memory but what a rewarding and successful term it was. Now we move onto Term 2 and have swimming, football and gymnastics in our sights.

This Term we move into the football season. Please read below for more details about the leagues and tournaments ahead.

Please remember that all sports squads start next week on Monday 14 January with the exception of Saturday basketball which starts this Saturday - 12 January 2019.

Football

After the success at the BISP Soccer 7s in Phuket, our Primary teams have a busy schedule ahead. For our Blaze teams we have the TISAC season which will involve league games and also a tournament. This is a great opportunity for all the children in our football squads to represent St Andrews International School Bangkok again.

In January we have the Harrow International Tournament that falls on the same weekend as FOBISIA for gymnastics, so some girls will have a tough job deciding which they would like to do. For this tournament we would like to take two U9 boys/girls teams and then our U11 boys Flames and Blaze/girls Flames.

In February we have the BISAC end of season football tournament where we will take our U11 Flames teams. In March we have the new NAE football tournament (only for U11) in Vietnam. At this current time the tournament hasn’t got a great intake of teams who can take part. For this reason we may have to wait until the tournament grows before entering. I will know more by the end of January.

Also, in March we have the Patana U9 tournament where we hope to take both U9 girls teams and 2 or 3 boys teams. So much on offer for our children who enjoy football.

Tennis

Please be informed that all tennis programmes for Term 2 will begin on Monday 14 January 2019.

Players who took part in Mini Blaze and Mini Flames programmes in Term 1, please note that we will be using the same “Mini Tennis Passport” so please ensure your child brings it along when they come to the lessons.

There will be tournaments for U9 and U11 coming up in Term 2. It will be a great opportunity for our players to participate and improve their tennis games.

Swimming

Welcome back to Term 2. We hope that you have had a very good holiday. Please note that our ECA and Swim Squad will begin next Monday, 14 January 2019 and it will run for 9 weeks ending on Monday 25 March 2019.

There will be lots of opportunities for our children to enjoy sporting events this term including Aquathon and our very own Marlin Mayhem. Please stay tuned for more information.

Term 1 Review

What an amazing Term 1 it was. So many different children competing for St Andrews International School Bangkok in a variety of sports from swimming, football, basketball, teeball, dance, gymnastics, tennis, triathlon, X country, golf. The highlights for me have been our International trips, plus the growth of our gymnastics and dance teams.

Here are a few photos of some of our children in Term 1.

Sporting Conferences

We appreciate that you are often hearing different acronyms - TISAC, BISAC, FOBISIA - that we are involved in but may not know much about them. We hope that the following overview will therefore be useful.

We are currently members of four conferences or organisations:

TISAC: Thailand International Schools Activities Conference

We have been members for many years. This has 16 schools involved which vary in size from small to very large. Currently, we mostly enter Blaze teams in TISAC. There are leagues and tournaments in several sports from U9-U19 and next year, TISAC will also start its own multi-sport Games for Primary children.

BISAC: Bangkok International Schools Athletic Conference

This is our first year in BISAC. The 12-school membership includes the largest international schools in Bangkok in leagues and tournaments across many sports, from U9-U19, split into four seasons through the year. BISAC schools also run invitational tournaments.

FOBISIA: Federation of British International Schools in Asia

This has three major multi-sport Games per year (Primary, U13 and U15) that take place in Phuket against other schools across Asia. There are also single-sport events in Tennis, Golf, Swimming and more, which take place across Asia and provide some amazing travel opportunities.

NAE: Nord Anglia Education

We are part of the South East Asia division and meet for a U11 multi-sport Games once a year. Our schools take it in turn to host the NAE Games.

In addition, we are part of the wider circuit regionally which means we are invited to a whole range of other events across Thailand.

Currently we are able to offer STA students opportunities through these conferences in Football, Basketball, Swimming, Tennis, Badminton, Golf, Teeball, Track and Field, Triathlon, Cross Country.

If you have any questions about these conferences, please don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Damon (damon.se@standrews.ac.th).
