Cub Football ‘ Move Over Manchester City…..9th Ormskirk Cubs Football Team are here !! ‘

I am pleased to report that the cubs have been training hard ahead of the District 5a-side
competitions which are due to take place in February. We now have a total of 15
boys who regularly attend both training or league fixture games each Saturday

We first introduced the football training mornings, which are held at Edge Hill University, in
October and it is great to see the boys developing their game and having so
much fun at the same time.

Before the Christmas holidays we held some ‘Festive Football’ and some ‘Christmas Challenges’ as
part of the training which was such a laugh. Various Christmas related football
games were set up which included hanging large Baubles by tinsel to the goal
post and each of the players trying to kick them off. The Festive Football
ended with the Dads joining in for a quick kick around too……although it had
to be said that the boys outpaced and out-skilled the Dad’s by miles !!

I wanted to say a big thank you to the parents who have turned up, watched and supported the team
each weekend,

Neil and I really appreciate your commitment each weekend.

And so as we lead up to competitions, one last thing to say ‘ Move Over Manchester City…..9th Ormskirk Cubs Football Team are here !! ‘

Things we have been doing in September – November

We have been quite busy on the Community challenge badge & chef, Astronomy activity
badges, with plenty of nice cakes for one and all.

The conclusion to the Astronomy badge is on 23rd of this month as a follow-up to the
work we have been doing for our Cub’s Astronomy badges and as a special treat, we
have arranged for an Astro-Physicist to bring in his inflatable Planetarium or
‘Fulldome’ for a ‘visit around our Solar System’.

By using a specially shaped mirror and digital projection, any properly warped image
can be projected over the full inside surface of the dome.

David has arranged this visit on both pack nights as our christmas gift to the
children for all their hard work this term.
