Futsal Friday

The students created teams of 6 and decided which player would play at which position. They were able to make sure everyone had a fair chance at playing time. One 8th grade team was significantly larger than the other teams, and, without prompting, they decided to take the field with fewer players while competing against younger students. What an awesome show of sportsmanship and consideration!

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

The students had a wonderful time participating in this event and parents liked to watch. As the coordinator, I have had many inquires about when the next tournament will be coming around! I hope to have events like this multiple times a year and invite various area schools. The themes of being active and eating well are always present in Robert Gray Middle School day.
