Baseball 5 was a hit with the students of Year 10 at the Gozo College Secondary School as last Monday the Ghajnsielem Redcoats wrapped up the tour of the Gozo College schools for the scholastic year 2017/18. The enthusiasm of the students for the game was extremely encouraging with several performing really well during the several mini games which were played during the three hour of the morning session. Each of the nine Year 10 classes of the school got their turn with over a hundred students getting about twenty minutes each.
The session was part of the Erasmus+ Sports: Small Collaborative Partnership project, Inclusion and Gender Equality Through Softball, as the Ghajnsielem Redcoats try to increase awareness with the students from all over Gozo about the importance of being physically active, participating in a sport, and giving an opportunity to girls to practice a sport. Once again several Redcoats who attend the schools helped out explaining to the students how the game is played.
The Ghajnsielem Redcoats also launched the promotional campaign for the Girls & Women Gozo Sports Fest, which will be held in Ghajnsielem on Saturday, June 2. The event is intended to showcase female athletes from Gozo who participate in sports. There will be activities in the morning from 9am to noon with basketball at the main square, athletics around the main square, football and softball at the Ghajnsielem football ground. In the afternoon there will be a softball game between Malta’s U19 Women’s National Team and the All Stars. This will be followed by a football game involving Gozo FC Women’s Team. Malta’s Olympic Committee will also be holding activities especially at the main square with a 3v3 tournament starting from 7pm until 10pm.
Once again the Redcoats would like to thank Mr Mark Buttigieg, Head of Physical Education, Gozo College, for the invitation to participate in the Year 10 sports day at the school.
