MOUNTAIN BIKE COMPETITION

Please take note of the change of date from our Sports Handbook.

NEW DATE! Thursday, 2nd May  from 12.30 - 14.30 at Beaufort Co-Operative Academy

As per the School Games rules, one team entry per school. Schools wishing to take part please email bh-ssn@ribstonhall.gloucs.sch.uk.

Event Lead British Cycling supported by the GSSN will be running the Primary Schools' Mountain Bike event.
The Teams The competition is for primary school aged students from Year 5 and 6. Teams must be made up of 4 riders, 2 boys and 2 girls.
Equipment Cycles (multi-geared mountain bikes) and helmets will be provided by the organisers. Individuals may bring their own helmets providing their school is satisfied that they are in good order. Full safety briefings and course preparation will be undertaken before the race but participants will still need to be competent with handling and riding a mountain bike.
Important note: There will be 1 bike allocated to each school. It is important, therefore, that the team members are of approximately the same height. This will avoid seat adjustment between riders during the team race. Whilst this is permitted, teams that have to undertake this task will be putting themselves at a disadvantage.

The Competition Format The competition will be run on grass at Beaufort School. It will be based on a team relay challenge; to complete a set number of laps of the designated course (approx. 800m in length). The team completing the required number of laps first will win. Each member of the team will complete a lap (in turn) and hand over to the next team member until all laps have been completed. The number of laps to be completed by each rider will be decided on the day and take into account prevailing weather conditions and length of the course.

There will also be an open entry Individual Time Trial Race (1 lap) for any team members to take part in on the day – this will be a separate competition with medals to be won in addition to the team event.

Level 3 Finals The top 2 teams will represent Gloucester in the Level 3 Summer Games on Thursday 14th June from 10.00-15.00. The competition will be run on grass area at Hartpury College, Gloucester, GL19 3BE

KS1 BEAN BAG ROUNDERS FESTIVAL

Event Lead
Leigh Mayne, PE Lead at Dinglewell Infant School is supporting the GSSN with the running of the Festival.

The Teams
This competition is for boys and girls in KS1.
Teams will be made up of 6 children (can be a mix of boys and girls).
There is no limit in the amount of teams each school can enter.

Event Rules:
One team fielding
One team throwing
From standing in a hoop, the first child throws all the bean bags as far as they can .
Once the last bean bag has been thrown they set off to run around all the cones to score a rounder (no stopping on bases).
The fielders can start to collect the bean bags once the last one is thrown and must get them all back in the hoop before the runner gets around to score a rounder.

A rounder is scored when the thrower makes it around all the cones before the bean bags get back to the start.

Then the next batter/thrower has a go and once all six in the team have thrown the teams swap over.

Scoring:
Teachers will take note of their individual school scores however they will not be recorded towards a final competition as this is a participation and fun event.
