Junior Hockey Tour of Holland
Monday 23rd August saw 38 girls and four members of staff embark on an epic journey to Holland for the pre-season junior hockey tour. Despite the torrential rain and the 4am meeting time, everyone managed to get there on time and with all heads accounted for, the journey began. About 12 hours later the team arrived in Valkenburg, their home for the next five days. The first game of the tour saw our girls play a well-established opposition. After a good battle, the teams came off having enjoyed the experience, improved their game play and looking forward to the forthcoming games.
The girls played some very skillful teams when they travelled to Germany, which they enjoyed observing and learning from. Throughout the tour the girls gave nothing less than 100% in every game. Off the pitch, the girls were involved in various activities including bowling, shopping in the local town and tobogganing. Motivation, behaviour and performance were impeccable, helping the well-organised tour to run smoothly.
