Competitive sport makes a comeback

Posted: 19-Jan-2014 by Maccabi WA

Carnival Co-manager Howard Steinberg and Sports Co-ordinator Simone Hesse spent many months of discussion about the sports component for this carnival. One thing they both agreed on was to try and get back some of the more competitive aspect of Senior carnivals from yesteryear. With the introduction again of medals and trophies for winning teams this spirit can be achieved. Simone Hesse said, “With our desire to make this carnival more competitive we still ensured that there was a variety of sports for everyone at every ability. The facilities we are using are the best in WA and because the afternoon will be a little hotter we are playing morning sports at Maccabi Grounds, and then all afternoon sports are indoor air conditioned centres.”

Day 2 of carnival saw some results already with girl’s tennis and boy’s table tennis being presented with medals.

The largest contingent of players is the girls year 6/7 netball with 10 teams competing, and whilst they are off court they are able to participate in conga and dance aerobics in a separate area. Boys futsal is also extremely popular with the opportunity for a non competitive game of indoor cricket for the off teams until their fixture is played. This has proven to be extremely popular with all the kids as it seems they have more energy than we all expected for the hot afternoons. Full sports wrap will be announced after carnival finishes.
