Last Saturday it was the turn of Hockey to be the focus of the session. As you can see from the photos below we started with a series of one on one races where the aim was to control the ball around a course of cones. We then progressed to races where the two competitors would battle for the ball before trying to shoot at goal and beyond the keeper.
After a quick drink break we switched to bench hockey to encompass some team work. If you have not seen it before we break in to teams and using benches the teams face off against each other. The benches form a tunnel with the teams having a goal to aim for at either end. It is therefore the aim to progress the ball along the tunnel passing between team mates before shooting through the goal posts.
The final part of the session was some "normal" games of Hockey. The teams took it in turns to play each other using the skills they had practiced earlier in the session. The games were fun but competitve.
At the end of the session, as you can see from the photos below, Zakaa was thrilled to be named Star of the Week. So a very well done to Zakaa for all the effort he put in and the way he played throughout the session!
Next Saturday we should have a visit from some Media students from Harlow College who will be shooting a video with the aim of promoting the club on the Essex Local Offer website. It would be great to see as many of you as possible - you never know you may become the star of the show!
See you then.....
