Super 7s Tournament
Howell’s has developed , The Super Sevens Tournament, where we invite local junior schools to take part in an action packed sporting day, in either Tag Rugby, Lacrosse or Netball. There are 7 members in each team, hence the name Super 7s Tournament. The children arrive in the morning, all wearing their school team strips. The day opens with a short ceremony set to music, then the children are divided into their respective sports and the tournament begins. The day concludes with a closing procession/ceremony and medals are presented by a prolific sporting star and HSL water bottles are given to each participant.
The aim of the Super 7s is to engage primary school children in sports including lacrosse, tag rugby and netball.
• Rugby tags
• Lacrosse sticks
• 5 member(s) of Howell’s staff (including PE staff)
• Venue - Howell’s playing fields/netball courts/sports hall
By providing this fun filled activity day for these schools, helps to share good practice with local schools and address the Physical Literacy curriculum.
“I'm writing to express my gratitude for arranging transport which enabled us to attend the lacrosse and tag rugby tournament at Howells. I cannot express our gratitude enough. Please can you thank all the people who made that possible!
Our children thoroughly enjoyed the day and took a lot from the tournament! We have had some of our children already asking when are we playing lacrosse again, we have also had other pupils asking can they play in the future!”
Luke Jenkins, Llanedeyrn Primary School
