Junior End Of Season Events Sunday, March 8, 2009Posted by mrfolds in Badgers, Club News, Junior Hockey, Juniors, ladies vixens, mens badgers.
This year we will be running two events, to celebrate our season, as numbers are too many to cater for everyone on one night. The Under 11’s and Under 9’s evening is on Friday 27th March 6 to 8 pm and the Under 13’s on Friday 3rd April 6 to 8 pm, both at Bentham Sports Club. The evening will take the format of previous years, an hour’s play in the sports hall (probably football & cricket) – no need to bring sticks – followed by food and awards. There will be the Stick Skill Award Certificates and lots of trophies as well as a children’s raffle.
The food will be ordered upon arrival and should be a choice of Sausages, Chicken Nuggets or Fish Fingers and Chips followed by Jelly and Ice Cream. There is a vegetarian option but we need to know this before the day. As we have had a couple of training sessions cancelled, these events are being subsidised by the club but we will be asking for £ 3.50 per head, which just covers the cost of the food. If any adults want the same food then they can also order this upon arrival.
We need to know numbers beforehand, in order to BOOK YOUR PLACE please contact Dave or Karen on 01242 233429 or 07958744180 before the 20th March.STICK SKILL AWARDS
Between now and the end of the season the U11 & U9’s will be concentrating on the Stick Skill Awards at training. These awards are based on a series of tests, designed by England Hockey, to reward improvement or skill acquisition and also encourage ongoing development as kids work towards higher stick skill standards. There are points awarded to achieve Gold, Silver, Bronze or Cub Standard. Everyone who takes part will get a certificate. There will also be prizes for the top achievers.
The monthly tournaments have been a great success, with a large number of children being given the opportunity to play. Our policy has been to give all players a chance to play rather than playing the strongest team available. Reports on these can be found on our website, under the Junior Section, at http://www.lansdownhockeyclub.co.uk please pay us a visit. Next Sunday 8th March does however see the more competitive Boys County Championships for U13’s & U11’s , where we will be playing our strongest sides available. The tournament runs from 10 to 4 pm at Dean Close School.
will run up to the 31st March, we will then be running sessions once a month over the summer, dates time & venue TBA.
