Year 5 & 6 Girls Pre Season Hockey Tour

On arrival at Greshams School the girls were straight onto the astro for training with the Year 5 & 6 girls from Greshams before taking part in some training games after lunch.

The girls were coached by both Ipswich and Greshams hockey teachers during the afternoon before boarding the minibuses for the short trip to Hilltop Outdoor Centre.

After supper the girls took part in some team building games which looked at the many qualities required to be a team player both on and off the hockey pitch. A restful night and a filling breakfast reenergised the girls ready for the exciting morning which included going down the 130m Zip Wire and challenging themselves on the Crate stacking task, again encouraging team work. 

In the afternoon, the girls were back into the minibuses to return to Rushmere to finish the weekend with some competitive matches against Felixstowe Hockey Club.

“The girls were an absolute joy to be with, they worked hard both on the hockey pitches and at Hilltop and the weekend has been the perfect start to the new term and the girls hockey season" said Director of Sport for Ipswich Prep, Mr Williams.
