Hi everyone, this is Alice Z. and Rebecca D. to report on the winter sports.  Winter sports began on November 15th. Everyone is so excited to start playing sports. For us, we really hope that everyone enjoys the sports. We will talk about the lists of the sports options, Alice will give a preview of swimming, and Rebecca will give a preview of basketball. We are halfway through tryouts, so get ready to try – and don’t forget to bring your sports clothes to your sports location!

The options for Winter are Boys’ Varsity A Basketball, Boys’ Varsity B Basketball, Boys’ JV Basketball, Girls’ Varsity Basketball, Girls’ JV Basketball, Recreational Basketball, Fencing, Fitness, Hockey, Swimming, Squash,  and Winter Warriors. The hockey and squash teams have 1:35 p.m. dismissal for Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. On Wednesday’s they have a 2:30 p.m. dismissal.

Everyone needs to bring their sports bag with them, as athletes you will change at your location, not the dorm. So prepare your stuff.

Hi, my name is Alice, I chose swimming to try out for this week. Our swimming coaches are Ms. Stewart and Ms. O’Neil. We have a 2:30 p.m. dismissal and we need to go to the bus and drive to the YMCA. I like swimming so much, in China I would compete in swimming every year. I hope you will like swimming too. For me, I really hope that everyone enjoys swimming, Rebecca wants to remind you, “Don’t forget your swimming clothes!” 

Hi, I am Rebecca and I will be talking about Varsity Girls’ Basketball. I am so excited about winter sports. For the Girls’ Varsity Basketball, we will have a 2:30 p.m. dismissal from school, and we wait in the Wolf Den for a 4:30 p.m. practice. For sports clothing, we need to have shorts, short sleeves, and basketball shoes. If you do not have basketball shoes, it is fine, you can wear sneakers for practice. After the practice, remember to wear outdoor clothing when you are outside. It will get cold outside on your way to dinner. Get ready for the Basketball!

Winter sports are here, I predict that everyone is excited about that, and we can each improve on our winter sport. Be ready to try out! And don’t forget to bring your sport clothes with you. That would be great!!!
