At the start of the year, 15 children from year 5 and 6 were selected to form our School Games Organising Crew. They have been busy at lunchtimes providing opportunities for children to become engaged in sport. They have also helped to officiate and run activities during some of our Level 1 competitions.

We have also been working with Support Sport this year, who have helped to deliver clubs during lunchtime aimed at getting all children involved in sport.

This has been a huge success and we hope that children will now join the Support Sport activities on Saturday mornings at the Rose Community Centre.

We have also maintained our strong links with both Sky Blues in the Community. They have been in this year to deliver the +Sport Move and Learn programme to our Year 5 children. We have also been able to offer our children with the opportunity to attend their training camps during the school holidays.

EFL Kids Cup report 

On Saturday 20th January 2018 just after midday three Coventry schools took part in the EFL kids cup finals at Ryton (Coventry training ground). There were lots of parents, teachers and representatives from Coventry City on the sidelines as well as former city star Dave Buust.  These three schools had qualified in their city section tournaments previously held at Sidney Stringer.

On an extremely cold and snowy afternoon, the three schools showed great dedication and commitment to try and clinch the title of city champions. However, the heavy snow and wet conditions made it very difficult at times. The first match saw a 0-0 draw between Parkgate and Whitmore Park. Both teams played the game in the right spirit but ultimately there was nothing between the two sides. The next match saw Spon Gate narrowly come out on top against Parkgate with a 1-0 win which meant that Spon Gate only needed a draw from their final match to clinch the title. Whitmore Park threw everything at the Spon Gate goal. Several last ditch tackles and the help of the post saw the children of Spon Gate grab that 0-0 draw and gave them the EFL trophy which was presented to them on the pitch at the Ricoh Arena at halftime during Saturday's fixture against Swindon Town. It is such a fantastic achievement to be labelled city champions and now Spon Gate move on to represent Coventry in the regional finals later this year.
