This term we have been given the opportunity to attend the Hockey Big Day Out which is held in Ngatea. The problem? None of us had played before. It's amazing how some of us show our value held by the manu Kiwi - Can do attitude straight away, jumping in and just going for it. And interesting to see how many of us needed more information, or even to see the game before saying that they would have a go. Of things to 'have a go at', hockey does have the fear factor, hard ball, hard sticks and bare feet don't often go that well together!
We have spent quite a few afternoons learning some skills and this last week we have become involved in quick games and given a chance to test those skills. We had so much fun! We learnt about positions and played to our strengths and had a great time doing it.
