Form 6 take part in Hockey Festival at the Linford Christie Stadium

By | All School News

On Thursday 14th March Form 6 travelled to the Linford Christie Stadium for the annual hockey festival organised by Orchard House School.

Divided into two teams of eight, each team competed against five other teams across nine different schools. Scores for the matches weren’t recorded as all the teams had only played a few games previously, but the girls were excited to take part and gain experience in playing fixtures.

Both teams found the first couple of games tough especially in adjusting to the size of the pitch, the speed of the game and transferring their knowledge from other invasion games, but by their last couple of matches the teams were showing vast improvements in their performances. They were able to pass and move the ball over greater distances, put greater pressure on opposing players with the ball and become more assertive when going into tackles to create turnovers.

The girls voted Hannah and Darcy as Most Valuable Players for the competition, who each took home a brand new hockey ball.

Well done to all of the girls on their efforts and performances throughout the hockey festival.
