First Hockey Match

21 Mar

Yesterday my class played their first hockey match as a team, and first ever for many of them. You see, as international students, many of them come to the UK never having played hockey or rugby (our 2 main sports) before.

We have worked hard over the past 10 weeks to teach them the basics (even how to hold a stick!!) work together and the most importantly rules!  It took them a while to settle down in to a decent formation, and they lost their shape quite a lot, but for a first effort I was very impressed and oh so proud when the Boys managed to pull off a 4-2 win!! Having a few talented core players helped, but they all did so so well 🙂 🙂

    Here in the Southern US we don’t play hockey at all as kids, so I’ve never played it before either. But it’s gaining popularity now so I bet soon I’ll get into a game. Good on the kids!

      You definitely should – I’ve been playing for about 15 years and still love it!
