Sports Captain

Each sports team at St Michaels will have a team captain. The captain will have a number of responsibilities within the department and as a member of the sporting team.

The Process

Captains will be picked for teams from year 8 onwards, with year 7 being a chance for you to show the PE team leadership skills that would make you a good choice for captain in future
years.
