We had a great session this week where the main sports were Cricket and Archery.
Last week there were no photos as the official photographer was on Coronation duty but we understand that the session was great and included Golf, Putting, Benchball and Boccia with Ellis and Sonny winning the Star of the Week awards.
This week Ray led the warm up before we started practising Cricket skills with some throwing and catching. That was followed by some games of Champion. The group was split in to two with Ollie leading one game and Ray the other. The object being to be at the head of the line at the end of the game. The leaders would throw a tennis ball to one of the kids at random. If they caught the ball they moved up the line but drop it and you move down. At the end of the game the winners were Zakaa, in Ray's group, and Davina in Ollie's group.
After a quick drinks break it was on to some fielding practice with the kids collecting a tennis ball from a cone and running around the stumps before replacing the ball. This then progressed to throwing at the stumps and taking a turn to be wicketkeeper to collect the ball.
After the main break we moved on to some batting practice. The kids were hitting tennis balls off a cone towards the end of the hall. They were then trying to aim to hit cones to gain points.
We finished off with some Archery with the group splitting in to two teams and each taking a turn or two with three arrows each time. Davina was among those to score a bullseye!
At the end of a great session the coaches awarded the Star of the Week awards to Kerrie and Rhys for their efforts throughout the morning. Well done to both!
Have a great week all and we look forwards to seeing you all back next Saturday.
We also had a surprise during the session with a visit from Toby Chow's parents. Although Toby no longer comes to the club his mum Heidi was awarded Loughton Citizen of the Year and along with that came a donation from Loughton Town Council to a charity of her choosing and she kindly thought of us. We were very touched that they thought of us and are very grateful for the award
