What is Team Runnymede?
Team Runnymede is the project with which Runnymede College seeks to develop our pupils’ physical and motor skills and help them achieve excellence in sports and become all – rounders. The project has been developed according to the Runnymede philosophy and code of conduct and is focused on four major sports: Athletics, Football, Rugby and Volleyball. The programme is offered to girls and boys from Years 1 to 13 and structured into two phases that allow pupils to try out the four sports before specialising in a particular area in which they will aim to achieve high standards.
As from September 2015 Team Runnymede is registered as a Sports Club meaning our squads may be enrolled in Spanish federated leagues and tournaments at a local and national level.
Through this structured program, Runnymede College seeks to complement our pupils’ academic aptitudes with the social and physical benefits derived from taking part in team sports:
- Develop the different physical and motor abilities required in each of the four sports and to share the experience of learning these four sports with teammates and coaches.
- Specialise in one of the four sports to develop high standards in the area where the pupil shows greatest interest and potential guided by professional and qualified staff.
- Learn how to lead a healthy lifestyle and develop the positive social aptitudes derived from the sense of belonging to a team and through competition within a familiar and safe environment.
