Belmont Beast Dodgeball Team - East Midlands Champions
Ten of our Year 5 and 6 children travelled to Leicester to take part in the East Midlands Regional Dodgeball competition. Nine schools were competing and the Belmont Beasts began the initial rounds playing Welton Primary School. It was a strong start with Belmont Beasts winning 12-0. We then continued the winning streak by beating Inkersall Primary 11-1, Boothville Academy 8-4 and then drawing 6-6 with St Mary’s C of E Primary. This took us through to the Semi-finals where we beat Christ the King Primary 8-4. The final was against Smith’s Wood Academy and Belmont made an excellent start winning the first half 6-0, after a quick change of sides the final concluded with Belmont winning 10-2.
This win means that the Belmont Beasts will travel to the University of Nottingham in July for the National finals. Twenty of the very best primary dodgeball teams from across England will be competing.
With special thanks to Mrs Smith and Maddie who have coached the team and many thanks to all the parents who have kindly supported the pupils - it is very much appreciated! Thanks also to the Burton Bears for their support.
A massive congratulations to all of the team for their incredible skill and teamwork. They all made a huge commitment to training both in and out of school at Burton Bears. We are very proud of you!
Be the ‘beast’ you can be!
