This month, I’ve been quite busy, running sessions at Bournemouth University. This week will be last of the 5-week programmed sessions for NCS, ran with myself and the Bournemouth University Relays team Zoe and Terri.
I would have delivered these yBall sessions too more than 200, NCS students. Each session is very fulfilling, at the beginning of each session we run team-building exercises and programs that challenges them.

At the end of last month, the yBall team ran a session at the Littledown family fun day, with over 10,000 visitors on the day, a very busy day for us playing games all day, and introducing yBall to the community.

During the month I run yBall sessions over New Milton, on a weekly basis, which will resume after the summer breaks on Tuesdays 4:30 till 5:30 at the Memorial Centre.

At the end of the month, the yBall team arranged a match between St Joseph Primary School and Winton Primary at Bournemouth University. A well-contested match played with respect and honesty and sportsmanship.

Tonight the Tesco staff played a game of yBall this is the start of many games to come, the next one will be in a few weeks time.

September will see the start of the yBallers kids camp, at Bournemouth University, plus the start of two new schools.

Why yBall?

yBall focuses on “ABC‘s”

AGILITY, BALANCE, COORDINATION. SPEED, SPACE AWARENESS , MOVEMENT,TRACKING. AND MUCH MORE.  

This is the direct quote sent to me, from the BBC1 sports presenter MIKE BUSHEL.

The new England coach Eddie Jones told me he loved the feature and the look of yBall and will use it in his training sessions…will spread the word. 

yBall is now based in Branksome Heath Junior School, for nearly one year, within each session a average of twenty plus students playing yBall.
