For sports people the practical side of course is perfect and the qualification gained will allow me access to university to pursue my career as a PE Teacher.
An Elmwood College Volleyball team recently took part in a Scottish Colleges Sports Volleyball Tournament at Dundee Universities, Institute of Sports Exercise.
Five college teams took part in the event, including, Stevenson, Inverness, Telford and Dundee. The teams played each other once competing for qualification for the National Finals.
After winning three out of four group matches, a nail-biting performance saw Elmwood edge through to guarantee a final place. However their final match against Telford was to result in a win to the Edinburgh college, who had also excelled in the tournament and had their own aspirations of reaching the National Finals.
Donald MacKay, Sports & Fitness Co-ordinator at Elmwood, said, “This was a strong team performance from all ten players in the squad. Getting to the final, the first time we have entered an event like this, was a fantastic achievement for Elmwood.”
