Firstly, apologies for the lack of a post last week, as I was away. Alan and the team led a great session of Tennis and the Stars of the Week were Sonny and Valentina.
Alan was unwell this week so Ray and Ollie led a session of basketball.
After a thorough warm up, the kids grabbed a ball each and practiced their bouncing and dribbling. Ray had them bouncing at waist height, then high followed by low bounces. Ollie then led a traffic light game before the kids paired up to bounce the ball between them.
We then laid out rows of cones for the dribble around, up the hall and back again. Then at the half way mark Ray asked that they move the ball around their waist and between their legs, before dribbling back. We then did some shooting practice making use of the baskets at each end of the hall.
After the main break we played some one-on-one match ups before passing around a big circle. We then finished off with some small sided games with the group splitting in to three teams - yellows, blues and greens. In the first game it was a 1-1 draw between the blue team and the yellows. Then the green team faced the yellows and that ended up with a 1-0 win. The last game saw the blues face the green team but the green team prevailed again 1-0 due to a great basket by Todd.
Our star performers this week were Alexander and Swaran. Well done lads!
See you all again next week for more fun and games, when hopefully Alan will be fit and well enough to return!
