Another great session at Epping Forest Sportability Club this Saturday where we played Hockey and other games out on the Oak View School playground.
We started off with a warm up jogging and stretching around the playground. We then played some games of Rob the Nest. The group split up in to four small teams and each tried to get as many tennis balls in their hoop as possible. This was done by taking it in turns, one at a time, to go and "rob" a ball from another nest. The first game ended in a tie between Davina and Liam's teams but the second game was won outright by Liam's team made up of Kealan, Ellis and Liam.
After a quick drinks break we switched to playing Hockey. We started with some practice dribbling the ball around the playground. We then laid out some cones for the kids to dribble around. Finally, some goals were added at the end of the playground for the kids to shoot out, once they had been around the cones.
After the main break, we moved on to some games with the group splitting in to two teams - the blues versus the yellow. By half time the yellow team were leading by six goals to four. At the start of the second half the blue team managed to get back on level terms but in the end the yellow team managed to win the game by one goal. There was some great goalkeeping at either end by Valentina (yellow team) and Kerrie (Blues).
The Star performer awards this week went to Ellis and Anand but there were some other notable great performances from many others including Liam, Todd and Valentina. Well done to all.
See you all again next Saturday for our penultimate session of the term.
