Sports Dy and Football

Sports Day // Football tournament

Our next DeFreshers announcement is here!

The SU Team has been toying with the idea of a Sports Day for years and we’re proud to announce that we’ve finally made it happen! Hosted at Powerleague in Ardwick (a mere 20 min walk from the RNCM), we will be running an Old School Sports Day followed by a Football Tournament, in collaboration with the RNCM Football Society.

Event information is as follows:

When? Wednesday 23rd June 2021

Where? Powerleague, Ardwick, M12 4JD

What Time? Events start 1pm, finish at 5:30pm

Sports ‘day’ will be run in 2 chunks: 1-1:45pm (teams 1-4), 1:45-2:30pm (teams 5-8).

The 5-a-side Football Tournament is in collaboration with the RNCM Football society and will run from 2:30-5:30pm on the same day. 

Sports Day events are:

  • Egg ‘N’ Spoon
  • Bean Head
  • Skipping
  • 3-Legged Race
  • Leap Frog
  • Sack Race
  • Hula Hoops
  • Throwing
  • Binocular Slalom
  • Space Hopper​
  • Wheelbarrow race
  • Full Team Relay
  • Tug of War

There will hopefully be space for spectators on the sidelines to cheer on the competitors. The numbers/limits will be confirmed following the government roadmap announcement on June 14th. Powerleague has a bar which serves food and drinks (soft and alcohol), so we’re confident that this is going to be a smashing event!

Sign-up for teams can be found on Moodle here: https://moodle.rncm.ac.uk/moodle/course/view.php?id=441

The winning team will score the 2021 SU Trophy which will be displayed on the Student Deck… better get training!
