The new school year may still be less than a month old but it’s been a busy time for the BWYA Wolves sports teams.
This season, our under 14 boys and girls footballers, and under 19 boys and girls volleyball players take centre stage, as well as the facilities BWYA has to offer. Highlights so far have included two BWYA hosted tournaments and success for the under 14 boys football team at the British School of Beijing (BSB).
On Saturday, 3rd September, BWYA hosted a tri-match friendly under 19 volleyball tournament, which saw both the boys and girls teams in action. Teams from Beijing International Bilingual Academy (BIBA) and Tianjin International School (TIS) joined us at our Laiguangying athletics centre for a chance to get to know teammates and enjoy some valuable match practice at the start of the season.
On Saturday, 10th September, it was BWYA Wolves under 14 football teams in action with the girls taking part in the ISAC Division 3 football exchange hosted by BWYA, and the boys competing at the Division 1 exchange hosted by BSB.
The under 14 girls competition saw the Wolves pick up two impressive wins against Canadian International School Beijing (CISB) and Hope International School (HIS), before a tired team narrowly lost to Harrow. The under 14 boys also picked up two good wins against BCIS and Harrow before losing to TIS. Despite the losses at the end, both BWYA teams have given themselves a great start to the season.
Coach Mirko Mirkovic, Athletics Director and Head of Physical & Health Education at BWYA commented: “The BWYA Wolves have already put in some great performances and picked up the results they deserve but what has been particularly pleasing for me is the level of commitment, passion and sportsmanship that our young athletes have shown.
“Our sports teams are getting bigger and better every year, without ever losing site of how sports should also be fun, and that we should always win or lose in the right way. I am really excited for the coming sports seasons so well done to all the players and coaches. Go Wolves!”
