We had a really good turnout this week at Sportability for our first session after Half term. We started as always with a warm up led by Ray. Then it was time to grab a hockey stick and tennis ball to practice some Hockey skills.
First up was some basic dribbling with the ball then some passing in pairs. Alan then introduced a game called Puppy in the Park. In this the puppy was the ball and the hockey stick represented the dog lead. The hall was marked out with cones and spots to denote where to walk the dog and where not to (roads etc). The task then was to walk the puppy in the right area by moving the ball around the hall.
After a drinks break it was on to some shooting practice before playing some one vs one games
After the main break we played some small sided games. In the first match Charlotte's team won against Kerrie's team. Kerrie's team then stayed on to play Valentina's team and won a close fought game. The last game was Charlotte's team versus Valentina's team which Valentina's team won. That meant that each team won one match each!
We finished off the session with a couple of Golf Putting games. First they had to try and putt the balls in to the hoops. Then we played a cone game where they putted from behind a line and tried to hit as many cones as they could. The ones they hit they collected and the team with the most cones was declared the winner.
Our Star performers this week were Anand and Rhys, in only his second week. Well done to both boys - great effort.
See you all again next Saturday for more fun and action.
