Soccer

Mini-Soccer

We invite ages 6-9 to start developing their soccer skills.

Coaching is on Thursday afternoons during 2nd term.  Parent involvement is encouraged to assist with coaching.

This is an exciting 2 seasons for our youngsters, who normally play with much enthusiasm.

Mini-Soccer requires a minimum of 7 players including the goal keeper.

They play for 10 minutes and one way only.

Inter- House Soccer

Our four houses select teams, who play off against each other to determine which house is the BEST in the school.

A series of matches are played, which then ends in a final match during the last week of the 2nd term.

Junior house soccer matches combine U9 and U10.  The junior matches are played on a mini-soccer basis.

Senior house soccer matches U11, U12, U13 and U14.

The Senior Matches are played on a normal 11 a-side basis.

Netball

Our netball teams excelled this year.  We look forward to more action in 2019.  We have a very active Netball team who keep busy with practice throughout the year. Learners who take part in Netball must make sure they have their own balls for practice. We have in recent years even had a few girls receiving their Gauteng Colours.

Athletics

Inter-House Athletics

Athletics is the major sport offered in the 3rd term, and the programme starts with the Inter-House trials (Field events – high jump, long jump and , shot put, middle distance and track events which include sprints, hurdle and relay).  At present, high jump, long jump and shot put are offered for under 11, 12, 13 and 14 pupils only, hurdles and middle distance from under 10 to under 14, relays from under 8 to under 14 and sprints from under 6 to under 14.

For many athletes, the inter-house athletics meeting is the highlight of their athletics year.  The Inter-house is held annually at the beginning of term 3 and the School athletics team is chosen on the basis of individual performance at this event.

Inter-School Athletics

Brooklyn hosts two athletic meetings per year – one field event and one track event. Usually three neighbouring schools per meeting are invited to attend.

In addition Brooklyn accepts at least  1-2 invitations to track /field meetings organised by neighbouring schools. The athletic season culminates in two events organised by PEPSAA (The Pretoria Primary Schools’ Athletics Association). PEPSAA ranks Pretoria Primary Schools into 3 Regions or Bonds – Region A, B and C. On an annual basis the winner of a lower region replaces the loser of the higher region. Brooklyn is in the A Region and strives to retain this position each year.

Brooklyn awards athletic colours to all under 12, 13 or 14 Brooklyn athletes who achieve a bronze, silver or gold medal at the Prestige meeting.

Dress Code

Inter-house:      House shirt and white pants

School team:     White shorts and white golf shirt with blue collar

Practice:             White shorts and white golf shirt with blue collar

White (or mainly white) athletic shoes or spikes (optional).  Most primary school athletes participate in bare feet.
