Coulsdon College played host to a Quicksticks hockey festival for local primary schools this week.  Youngsters from Atwood Primary, St Aidan’s, Harris Primary Academy, Kenley and Harris Primary Academy, Benson attended the festival which intended to provide a safe introduction to the sport for young children.

College students on the BTEC Level 2 Sport course led the day, providing firstly, fun skills activities followed by short four-a-side games.

Ben Garrett, one of the students enjoyed the experience. “It was really good fun.  The kids were great and responded really well to the opportunity.  The ball we used was larger and lighter than a normal hockey ball, making it safe for younger players.  Even though I’m not a hockey player myself, I was able to practise my coaching skills and I felt a real sense of achievement at the end of the day.”

David Smith from Croydon Sports Partnership, who instigated the event said, “All the leaders were great.  They all got involved, set their games up on time, and delivered their session with confidence and good knowledge. With each rotation the coaches got stronger and more confident. It was great to see some of the quiet ones in the sessions take some responsibility and be an active part of the afternoon.”
