A quieter session this week but good fun none the less. After a warm led by Alan and Ray we started with Hockey. The kids started off with a Hockey Stick and Tennis Ball each just getting used to dribbling the ball around the hall. Ollie then led a traffic light game - stop on red, dribble side to side on yellow and full-on dribbling on a green light. Alan then introduced pairs of cones to dribble between and then to do figure of eight patterns around. This helped with close ball control.
We then introduced some shooting practice. First as just practice but then we made it competitive by doing one vs one games. The kids had to run up the hall, around a cone before getting to the ball. They then had to dribble around some cones before shooting.
After the main break we put all that practise to good use with some small sided games. We split in to three small teams and each team played each other. The yellow team won the first game comfortably with some great goals from Liam. The yellow team won the second game as well but this time it was the other team with the winning goal being scored by Todd. The final game matched up the two winners from the previous matches. It was a fiercely fought final that was neck and neck all the way. Liam was all over the pitch for the yellow team with Anand scoring some good goals but it was the red team that eventually won with Pranav and Kerrie scoring and Todd getting the winner.
We finished off the session with some Archery. The kids love archery, it was a great way to wind down after the frenetic activity of the hockey matches. At the end of the session the coaches awarded this week's Star awards to Kerrie and Todd - very well done both of you!
See you all again next week for another fun filled session with different sports.
