In February 2020 we were delighted to announce that HBJ had been selected as a Wildcats centre by the Sheffield & Hallamshire County Football Association. Wildcats is an initiative launched by The FA designed to inspire girls aged between 5-11 to be involved in football. Wildcats centres provide girls with regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions in a fun and engaging environment.
We have partnered with Sheffield United Community Foundation who will be running our Wildcats Centre at Hunter’s Bar on Tuesdays after school. The sessions will provide an ideal opportunity for the girls to learn new skills and have fun whilst playing football. As the sessions are being managed by Sheffield United Community Foundation and not Hunter’s Bar Juniors you please click here for more information.
One of our newest partnerships is with Sheffield Hatters. The club were formed in the early 1960’s and became the first Women’s Basketball team in England. Since then the club has developed into the most successful women’s sports club in the country due to our domination of English Women’s Basketball since the early 1990’s. Hatters were the first women’s basketball club in the country to gain Sport England’s Clubmark Accreditation.The club has a reputation for providing playing and coaching opportunities for girls and women of all ages. The strong junior development programme, with teams from under 10 and up to under 18, has been so successful that many young players move into the senior team and go on to win international honours. This is mostly due to our senior players and coaches being involved with the local community and regularly visiting many Sheffield primary and secondary schools. We look forward to developing this links as year progresses. Click on the title link for further club information.
Again, our newest partnership for 2018-19 is with the community development team at SWFC. The coaches from Wednesday will be assisting our delivery of football for both boys and girls across the school. We are excited to be part of the Premier League Girls' football scheme taking place later in the year. Click on the title or Premier League link to find out more.
As well as our link with Sheffield Wednesday we have welcomed Sheffield United into our school in 2019-20. Coaches from SUCF will be delivering the Premier League Primary Stars project for the whole academic year. As well as this Year 5 will have access to the Move and Learn, Health and Exercise Programme at the start of the year. Click on the title or links to find out more.
Hallamshire Tennis ClubOur link with the local tennis club is perhaps one of our strongest.
