Here at Jonathan Gloag Academy we aim at providing a safe learning environment through physical education where we can develop healthy bodies, improve sports skills and promote positive attitudes towards lifetime physical activity. With a high-quality sports programme in place we aim at enhancing physical confidence, decision making and the understanding of activities and health. The sports programme provides a platform to cultivate the values and characteristics we believe to be fundamental for success both academically and in life.
At JGA Football Club, we believe in nurturing young talents by working towards their skills development. We approach our work by taking a journey wih our players through progressive drills such as fitness, ball work, positioning, movements with and without the ball and discipline on and off the pitch.
We train twice a week(Tuesdays and Saturdays)We have been very active in locally organized tournaments where our boys have done very well. We recently won the inter private schools tournament in the under 15s category and were runners up in the Chipukizi Nairobi Tournament in the under 11s and under 15s category.
Looking forward to term 3 of 2019, we will be hosting our tournament and lastly evaluate our players to see how far we have come as we close the year.
We are also going to launch our very own astro tuff facility within the school that will go a long way in helping us achieve our goals for the year ahead of us and beyond.
At this event we will also launch our branded football strips(details will be communicated later.
JGA basketball program is a focused on developing not only students athletes but also responsible and educated people in the society. We teach the students through a process known as Long Term Athlete Development(LTAD) which is based on a long term process of learning the basic fundamentals of basketball. Besides this, we involve the students in more fun games during the sessions so that they can still have fun while working out.
During weekend programs we integrate life skill lessons into the program through which we are able to know the students' dreams and desires and lead them through the right path in order to achieve what they desire
"Obuntu" which means togetherness; basketball as a sport brings people together uniting us as one big family. This way the pupils are able to interact freely with each other making new friends and grow together as a family.
We are grateful for the positive feedback we have received from the administration, parents and pupils.
We are also looking forward to paticipating in one local tournament for both our boys and girls teams before the end of term 3 2019
