Although the weather was a bit wet and miserable first thing on Saturday it had brightened up enough by the time the session started for us to get outside on the playground. The session centered mainly around football but at the end of the session we had enough time for a quick game of cricket.
The morning started with a warm up including a tag game which was led by Ray. The group then moved on to the main sport for the day which was football starting with some practice drills. Basic movement with the ball with Ray calling toe tap and side to side touches with the ball
We then moved on to dribbling and shooting. Each player moved through a set of cones then on to a shooting area. When they reached the shooting area Ray called out Red or Blue. The goal was split in half (red and blue) and the player would shoot to the side that had been called.
The shooting proved very popular and James Penfold showed some good awareness and eye for goal. Another member who worked extremely hard was Charlotte Bisell who as the session went on grew in confidence and made some great shots at the goal.
At the end of the session the coaches conferred and awarded the star of the week award to Charlotte, pictured here with Zakaa, Anand and Coach Ciara.
A very well done Charlotte!
