HOCKEY: Students in skills show at Redlands
6:00pm Monday 28th October 2013 in Sport
The event, for Years 5-7, attracted many local primary and secondary schools, and saw Level Three coach Susie Stone lead the pupils through a variety of hockey drills, which culminated in a mini tournament later in the day.
Volunteers from Weymouth Hockey Club also gave up their time to assist in the coaching as well as some young sports leaders from Budmouth College, who shared their own skills and knowledge throughout the day.
These young leaders are also members of Weymouth Hockey Club and have come up through the successful system of school/club links, having attended the Weymouth minis hockey section.
Organiser Jo Ray, who works in the sports department at Budmouth, said: “It was a really successful day with lots of positive feedback from both staff and students.
“There were some very talented youngsters who we hope will continue to play hockey in their own schools and in the community.”
Weymouth’s mini-hockey coaching takes place on the Astropitch at Redlands on Wednesday evenings at 6pm. All abilities are very welcome to attend.
