November’s Kick Off produced a high standard of footy both out field and in goal. Congratulations to Rob for his Man of the Match award, scoring a cracker in the 3rd-4th play off! Team discussion focused on abuse and cheating within the game of football and how the attendees could be the difference and make their stand on the pitch. A great evening which left everyone looking forward to the next one! See you there at the last Kick Off of 2011, on Mon 5th Dec?

Teenage leaders from Frome and Bristol gathered in Bath for a day of training, discipleship and mentoring. Using the biblical example of David we delivered 4 quality sessions of experiential learning – think catapults and sling shots and a real life Goliath!! As we focused on Character, Faith, Skills and Mission we witnessed the Young Leaders being impacted and gaining new understanding – one in particular as he committed his life to Jesus.
We look forward to continuing our work with the Young Leaders in 2012 … in the mean time, see you at Teen Kick-Off!!
We spent a fantastic 3 days with 116 children across Bath and Frome GET Sported Camps. The young people thoroughly enjoyed their introduction to Baseball, American Football and Ultimate Frisbee, as well as the mainstream sports of Cricket, Rugby, Football, Tennis, Basketball and Athletics. The afternoon activities offered even more variety with Gymnastics, Art, Cookie Craft, Dance and Lego Club to choose from!
Bath also received a visit from Police Community Support Officer David Hall – not to bring order to a rioting Camp but rather to referee a football match!! Thank you ‘Dave the Cop’ !
Both the children and leaders were inspired by our curriculum ‘Transformed’ – looking at what it means to seize opportunities, and to have a positive perspective and to show strength and courage in the face of any difficulties and during the change which follows. Some children took the opportunity to become friends with Jesus and be filled with the Holy Spirit – Alleluia!!
Thank you to the fantastic team of coaches, leaders and young leaders. We’re now looking forward to our Christmas Camp Parties! Dec 19th in Bath and Dec 20th in Frome – hope to see you there
Our fresh-look Teen Kick-Off footy tournament kicked off big and buzzing! 4 teams competed, each with their own coach-manager who talked tactics and spent time with the lads on the sidelines. Congrats to Matt Hawkin’s team who were crowned Champions after squeezing a 2-1 win in the final.
The team talk discussion explored what it is to make good choices rather than rash decisions, in context to the recent headlines made by Tevez at Man City. The takeaway question posed to the players was: “would you forgive Tevez and welcome him back onto the team if you were his manager?”
An excellent evening of fun and fellowship ended with the Player of the Tourament award, nominated by the players themselves. Joe and Prince came out tied at the top – with the coach’s decision the award went to Joe, well done Joe!
We look forward to welcoming the teams back for another great evening on Mon 28th Nov – come join in the fun, contact us to enter your team!
