SportsOne is a Saturday extra-curricular programme offering gymnastics and basketball sessions to all pupils in schools within the London Borough of Sutton and beyond at Glenthorne High School.
There is an emphasis on strengthening the link from school to club to elite level performance. The club wants to develop participants’ confidence, fitness and skill development and also provide opportunities for all to celebrate their success. They strive to provide a friendly and encouraging learning environment which presents pupils with appropriate challenges where they feel safe to take risks in developing their personalities, competitiveness, discipline and motivation to achieve.
In the gymnastics sessions, all pupils will participate in a range of strength, balance, flight and rotational skills on floor, vault, beam, trampette and air track. They will celebrate success through competitions, display work and the British gymnastics badge award schemes.
The basketball sessions include all aspects of defensive and offense basketball through drills and games, with emphasis on the core skills of dribbling, passing and shooting. All pupils will join in with internal and external competitions.
