The session last Saturday was split in to two main sports. After the usual warm up it was ball skills and in particular rugby ball skills. That was followed later on in the session by some Indoor Cricket.
We had our club AGM last Saturday so whilst the committee, parents and carers had the meeting the kids got on with some ball skills under the guidance of coaches Ray, Ciara and Zoe with expert assistance from Ollie. As you can see they started by passing the ball to each other in a big cirlce.
They then moved on to a tag game called Dragon's Den which is a one on one game - fast and fun. One player has to run to middle and pick up the rugby ball and get back without getting tagged by the opponent running from the other end.
After a break for refreshments it was time for some Indoor Cricket. This was a straight forward game between two sides with the aim that everyone gets a chance to bat and field and most, if not all, get a chance to bowl. At the end of the session the leaders awarded the star of the week award to Jenny so a very well done!
The AGM we held was very well attended and we discussed how the club was doing and plans for the future. Many thanks for all those that came along and for all the input and suggestions. One of which was to advise what sports we intend to play in the next session. To that end Coach Alan has advised that it will all be about throwing and catching leading towards a handball style game. We look forward to seeing you all then.
