Team ND has Brilliant Opening Week

The first ‘Team ND’ fixtures took place last week and provided some very pleasing results for the college. ‘Team ND’ has been launched this year to provide an even bigger range of sports for our students than has been available in previous years – all under the same banner. Students now have the opportunity to play basketball, football, volleyball, cricket, boxing, badminton, netball and rugby.
Our PE department has a unique partnership with Leeds Beckett University, which means that specialist coaches from their highly successful sports department come to Notre Dame to train our students in the available sports.
Last week saw the first outing for some of our new teams. The Notre Dame Basketball team beat Greenhead College 54 points to 45. Our Football Academy won their match against Shipley and Guiseley Football Academy by 4 goals to 2. Finally, our football second team beat Huddersfield New College, also by 4 goals to 2.
“We are really pleased with the results of our first fixtures,” said Scott Broadley, Head of PE at Notre Dame. “It’s great that we can benefit from highly skilled coaches at Leeds Beckett who can lead our teams to further successes in the coming year.”
Well done to all our sporting superstars!
