Another lovely day at Epping Forest Sportability Club. We started as always with a warm up. It was led by Ray and as well as the usual stretches and jogging it included a game of Rob the Nest.
We then started on the main sport of the day - Hockey. Each child grabbed a stick and tennis ball and began by practicing ball control. This included a Traffic light game where when Ollie held up a red cone the kids had to stop still with the ball. Yellow cone meant move the ball side to side on the spot and green to go around the playground dribbling the ball under close control.
We then moved on to dribbling around a course of cones, some shooting and passing practice and it all culminated in some small sided games.
After the main break we moved inside to play some Benchball. We split in to three teams playing 5 minute games so that they all played each other.
We finished off the day with some Boccia. The group split in to two teams at either end of the hall. The red team won all three Hoop games but the blue's won the nearest the jack game. Well done to all - a great session all round.
Our Star of the Week awards went this week to Kerrie and Davina - well done to both of you!
Join us again next Saturday which will be our last session before the Summer break. We will then be back on Sept 11th for the start of the Autumn term.
