It has been great to get back to competitive fixtures. The children have been so excited to get out on the pitches and represent the school. We were so pleased to see the progress all of the children have made already this term with very little time for coaching.
U11A Rugby Elms 7s Tournament
On Saturday King’s Hawford Under 11s travelled to The Elms to play their rugby fixtures since December 2019. The festival allowed the boys to play four fixtures and rediscover their love of rugby. The boys were quickly into their stride, playing some scintillating attacking rugby. They played with pace and flair throughout the afternoon and should be really proud of their efforts. At Hawford our sporting success is not measured in winning and losing but in the setting of objectives for our children to achieve in their competitive fixtures. It was therefore very encouraging when the three objectives set for the afternoon were completed after the first two fixtures. This is a great sign of things to come from this able and keen group of children.
Girls’ U11 & U10 Hockey v King’s St Alban’s & Bromsgrove School
Our U10 and U11 girls’ hockey teams were back in action on Wednesday with a triangular fixture against King’s St Alban’s and Bromsgrove Prep School. For many of the girls this was their first experience of competitive hockey in two years. The matches were an excellent opportunity for all teams to reacquaint themselves with the game. The focus in all of our games was to learn to work together as a team; working on strong and accurate passes, moving into space and supporting one another.
There was a great deal of positive play on the pitch and the girl’s work ethic was second to none on the day. It was also great to see all of the players supporting one another on and off the pitch. It was a fantastic learning experience and we left Bromsgrove with high spirits. There is still plenty left to work on and areas to improve as the season goes on, but a strong start nevertheless. Well done girls!
