Primary School league about to start in Milton Keynes!

Korfball continues to expand in Milton Keynes with a new primary school league about to get underway!

St Monica’s Catholic Primary School, St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Primary School and Newton Longville Church of England Primary School all played in the primary school league last year with MKX Youth Korfball club.

St Monica’s, St Thomas Aquinas and Newton Longville are joined in the primary school league by Summerfield School and first-time entrants Giles Brook Primary School.

St Monica’s Primary School won both the indoor league and summer league last year.

The schools will be paired up for training over the next 8 weeks with regular matches planned through to Easter, after which the top 3 teams will play off in the Grand Final.

Darren Gray from the Milton Keynes Youth Korfball Trust said: “the Milton Keynes Youth Korfball Trust is delighted to fund and deliver the league again this year. It is a tried and tested way to introduce korfball many new young players in several schools.

“The competition element is vital in capturing the imagination of players, parents and staff.  The league in previous years has been the first korfball for many local club players, some having progressed to England youth teams and National League clubs.

“Delivering korfball to single schools is fun but provides less challenge and purpose. We have six teams signed up so far but are meeting other schools in the next few weeks and hope the league will start in November with 9 teams”

The Milton Keynes Youth Korfball Trust runs events, competitions and raffles to raise money to support the development of korfball in the Borough of Milton Keynes for children and young people aged 20 or under.
