St Dominics Newcastle hosted the Curro Regional Sports Trials this past weekend.
Over 1 000 learners from Curro Schools across South Africa descended onto St Dominics Newcastle. Each learner determined to prove their worth on the sport field. Whether from Mt Richmore, Secunda, Nelspruit, Hillcrest or Bloemfontein, the mission was to dominate the Curro Regional Sports Trials.
Each learner working extremely hard, aiming to be chosen for the Wildebeest team and compete at the National Championships.
The gruelling three-day selection process kicked off on Thursday, March 8, with the learners competing in netball, soccer, hockey and sevens rugby.
Hosting the event for the first time, St Dominics Newcastle proved to be an ideal location, offering the participants the opportunity to use the exceptional facilities in their quest for glory.
Johan Jacobs, St Dominics Sports Couch, explained the reason the trials are held in a tournament format, is to allow learners to gain enough game time to prove themselves. Under the watchful eye of facilitators, the children could showcase their abilities at their relevant sports, while showing the ability to play as a team.
The event proved to be a resounding success. “It really went well and was well supported. Everything went according to plan and it was a privilege for St Dominics Newcastle to host the event,” Jacobs enthused.
The results are to be released during the upcoming week, the Newcastillian will publish them ASAP. Well done to all participants for being so well behaved and for demonstrating some truly amazing skill on the day.
