The Winston Churchill Sports College Primary Schools’ Sports Partnership Hockey Coaching Festival

On a cold Friday afternoon 13 of our Sports Leaders from Y9 & 10 travelled to Goldsworth Park to help lead and referee the first primary schools’ Hockey Coaching Festival for our new partnership.

The students helped the Woking Hockey Club coaches lead Y5 & 6 pupils from The Hermitage, Goldsworth, Knaphill and St Johns primary schools in an afternoon of hockey drills and skills.

These skills were then developed in a mini tournament where each school played each other in small teams of 6.  Our students either took charge of a team or refereed the games.

Although the temperature dropped alarmingly during the afternoon, it was a very successful event and a great time was had by all.  A quote from one of the primary school children was;

“It was so good, it was amazing!”
