It was great to see everyone back after the long summer break. The weather was kind to us, almost a little too kind as it was a bit hot.
It was great to welcome a new member, Harry, to the club. We hope he enjoys it and wants to come back each week.
We started off the term with a session mainly around Hockey. We started with a warm up led by Ray then it was in to some skills practice for the Hockey. Everyone grabbed a stick and hockey ball and practiced moving the ball side to side as they moved around the hall.
Ollie then led a traffic light game before they moved on to some dribbling and shooting practice.
With all the practice under their belts it was on to some small sided games. The group split in to three teams and took it in turns to play each other. The yellow team won a tight first game by a single goal against the blue team. The green team then took on the blue team and they won too. That made the last game between yellow and green teams the decider and it was the green team that won through!
After the main break we switched sports to practice some Archery in the hall.
The kids took it in turns to try and get as high as score as possible in their turn. Our new member Harry did particularly well getting a bullseye at the end of the session!
Our first Star of the Week award winners this term were Hal and Charlotte - congrats to you both!
Our Head Coach Alan also deserves an award as he ran a 10k in Sunday in the blazing heat and managed a great time of 69 minutes. Well done Alan!
Looking forward to more fun and games next week - see you then!
