We had a good turnout for our first session back after the Easter break and it was great to see everyone. Hockey was the main sport we played.
After a warm up, led by Ray, we practised some Hockey skills. These included dribbling with the ball, a traffic light game, moving the ball through the cones, then moving the ball in a figure of 8 around the cones.
They then paired up passing the ball between the pair as they made their way around the cones. The final practice was shooting with the kids dribbling the ball half way down the hall before shooting towards a goal made up of cones in front of a bench. After shooting they would collect their ball, dribble back and pass on to the next person so that they could take their turn.
After the main break we put all that good practice to use in some small sided games. The first match up was between the green and yellow teams with the green team winning a close battle 6 to 5. Next up the blue team played the yellow's and the blue team ran out winners. It was then the battle of the two winning teams - the green's and the blue's to see who would be champions. The game went one way and the other but it was the green team that won out by a score line of 4 to 3.
We finished off with some games of Boccia with the group splitting in to two teams. We started off with 9 hoops to aim for and with each game the number of hoops reduced. The reds won the first game. The blue team won the second game, with 5 hoops to aim for. The final game with just three hoops was won by the blue team 4-2.
It is Todd's birthday next week so we all sang him Happy Birthday. Alan then presented our Star performers their certificates and the were Charlotte and Hal - well done both!
