The session last week was one of our busiest for quite a while! Thanks to a very positive comment on a parents forum page we have been very fortunate to welcome a few new faces over the last couple of weeks as well as a couple more enquiries. So with a good turnout and a few new members to integrate in to the session the coaches were certainly kept busy - I have never seem Coach Alan so worn out by 1 o'clock before! That meant that Zoe was not able to take as many photos as she normally would do so this post will be a lot briefer than normal.
The session started as normal with some warm ups led by Ray, Ollie and Ciara before moving on to this weeks main sport -Golf, or more precisely putting. The coaches devised a few drills and games aimed at improving coordination, aim and control. One such game was where the children had to aim their puts at specific cones and if they hit them they scored points. The child with the most points was the winner.
After a break we switched sports to Cricket with some games of Three Tee Cricket. The kids take it in turns to be the one batting where they hit three tennis balls off of three tees and then run between the wickets as many times as possible while the rest (the fielders) collect the balls and tees and put them back in their original positions. Once the fielders have everything back to normal the batter stops running and the runs are totalled up. The batter with the most runs once everyone has taken their turn is the winner.
