Season Recap: Grade 5/6 Soccer
The Grade 5/6 Soccer Team finished a very successful season! The team, filled with players who were mostly new to athletics at ISI, finished their season with a 6-3 record. Grade 5 is the first year students are able to compete in school athletics, and the Gryphon athletes were excited and ready to start their ISI athletics careers.
“My goals for the team this season is to foster a love of soccer, growth, and development of the basic skills, strategies, and commitment to the team, Coach Kamel Imine said. “This group of athletes achieved a second place for the regular season, and we made it to the semi-final for the IISL tournament.”
The Grade 6 players were excited to lead the team and help the Grade 5 students and new teammates learn the game and develop throughout the season. Students had opportunities to try out different positions and grow their soccer knowledge and love for the sport as the season progressed.
“My favorite memory of the season was definitely getting to the semi-final or winning a game 13-0 and scoring goals,” Grade 6 student Beckett Garry said. “I already can’t wait for next season.”
